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.

22 oz bottle. Aroma: nutty, with hints of hazelnut (obviously), bread, and toffee. Taste/Palate: creamy and sweet; starts crisp, and finishes slightly astringent and bitter.

(przeprowadzka z excela: 2014-07-05, Kufle i Kapsle) Karmelowo-orzechowo-kawowo-czekoladowe - zarowno w aromacie jak i w smaku. Drugie takie pod rzad co prawda nie do wypicia dla mnie, ale jednorazowo - fajne.

Herrliche Färbung, dunkelbraun, im Geruch malzig, nussig. Im Geschmack Kaffee, Nuss, später leichte Süße, sehr komplex. Fast wie ein Stout aber deutlich leichter zu trinken. Im Abgang leicht bitter. Die 6,2% merkt man überhaupt nicht. Sehr sehr lecker!

Looks good, smells good, tastes good. Weird, tastes like a nutty brown ale. There are a few brown ales I like better but glad I tried this one finally.

22 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market, Elizabeth City, NC. Light brown pour with a short beige head. Distinct aroma of nuts and light chocolate. Hazelnuts are at the forefront of the flavor and add a lot to what is normally a rather boring style. An excellent brown ale.

HonusWagner (1630) - Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Just a pretty mediocre brown ale with a bit of decent hazelnut character. Not much to say, a bit of an acrid/burnt taste. Disappointing given how much I remember liking this beer years ago.

Poobah (294) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours amber with a generous head that dissipates quickly paired with a hazelnut nose. Smooth entry with a lightly-carbonated, mild palate and finishing with hazelnut, caramel, and brown sugar.
