Shared a big brown bottle into a schooner glass, thanks gregwilsonstl! It poured a mostly clear red-tinged medium brown color with moderate beige foam and good Belgian lace. Surprisingly weak aroma: just a hint of caramel, hazelnuts, almost no hops or yeast aspects. Strong flavors came across, though: complex malt bill, caramelized brown sugar, husky grains, burnt toast, strong nutty/tannin-y tastes from the hazelnuts. Light-medium body. Well-rounded, chewy mouthfeel. Overall, not very bready or fruity. Definitely an extremely dry interpretation of "English nut brown ale." Good not great.

From tap. Dark amber to light chestnut brown with an off-white head. Aroma of sweetish roasted malts with honey and some flowery hoppy notes. Medium body with a medium to heavy sweetness and a light bitterness. The taste is rich of roasted malts with honey, brown sugar, molasses, biscuit and a nice distinct aroma of nuts in the finish. Very nice brew.

Dégustée avec mon Appiantiqua dans nos petits verres Duvel: jolie robe Acajou avec une fine mousse couleur crème peu persistante et une bonne carbonatation.Le nez nous offre des arômes chocolatés intenses mêlés par la suite à des notes vineuses ,épicées..La bouche nous amène sur des saveurs à l’image du nez avec la bonne amertume des amandes et le goût des noisettes dans une harmonie extraordinaire.Une bière très vivante(de nouveaux goûts arrivent au fur et à mesure de la dégustation),originale,riche et subtile avec une finale assez courte mais plaisante.

Goûtée avec mon Kittenbieer dans un petit verre Duvel 18cl. Température de début environ 6°. Belle robe acajou surmontée d’une fine mousse crème peu persistante; bonne carbonatation. Nez absolument extraordinaire sur la noisette version gâteau ou macaron : une véritable madeleine de Proust!!! Le goût ajoute de délicates notes de vieil alcool et de chocolat/cacao dans une très belle harmonie. La finale est brève et légère mais plaisante. Une bière originale mais fort bien réalisée qui fera l’unanimité.

From decervecitas. In Teku glass. After dinner. Too much hazelnut here, in aroma and aftertaste, so much that even makes me want to puke. I like hazelnuts, but this is excessive

Ambar oscura, rojiza. Espuma ocre de poca duración. Deja película. Clara avellana en el aroma. En boca resulta aguada, pero con un sabor agradable, malteada, con la avellana predominando, y notas de chocolate. Rica pero sin cuerpo.

Been drinking this for years and won’t event get sick of it. Beautiful beer with a great brownish red color, aroma like nutty molasses, taste is smooth with a little sweetness and a nice subtle hazelnut flavor.

Bottle. Light but nice aroma of hazelnut and roast, hint of toffee and caramel. Taste is dry, light sweet and bitter. Flavor of nuts, caramel, hint of citrus seeds at aftertaste.

I bought this bottle in a Monoprix, in Paris. I drank it tonight, relax at home, during this nice but cold day. In my point of view, it is a delicious beer, original. First, there is a nice brown color, thin foam, middle low carbonation. The first impression is that you drink a doppelbock. There is a side of malt, toffee, little smocked but there is a really nice touch of nutd at the final, discreet presence of hop and a bit watery, refreshing and pleasant for the soul.

Orangy colored pour. Loads of hazelnut on the nose, reminds me of belgian chocolates. Yum yum dessert. In addition to the hazelnut milk chocolate, slight notes of coffee, sweet malts, bitterness from coffee. Very smooth and buttery. Very focused flavor profile, yet shows nice restraint.
