Reviewed 2/20/13. 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a one finger light mocha shade featuring a good texture, but not much retention. S: Strongly nutty - not just in terms of hazelnut, but other variants like almonds, walnuts, and pecans come through. Aromatically, it’s pretty much just peanut butter-esque with not much else to give any other depth. But that one note? It’s extremely inviting and enjoyable. T: Much sweeter than the aroma, and veering dangerously to artificial in terms of how it comes off. The flavor profile is hazelnut...and that’s about it. Decidedly one note, and that solitary note has flaws to it. I don’t hate it by any stretch, though. M: The general texture is kind of thin and even insubstantial. Despite that, there’s a lot of coarse finishing astringency that comes off slightly clashing with the sweetness and limp body. Hell, it even manages to be both watery AND sugary in its finish. Only thing it does right here is ease of drinkability. O: Not particularly likable aside from the aroma; I’m glad I only bought a single of these and wouldn’t buy it again. Having said that, it’s a good choice for hazelnut lovers - because let’s face it, the flavor is nothing BUT that. If this and Frangelic Mountain Brown have taught me anything, it’s that hazelnut beers give off great aromatic qualities...and not so great flavor profiles.

vidmidia (93) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - AUG 27, 2015
Marrom, turva. Espuma média de média duração. Forte aroma de avelã, com notas de caramelo e chocolate. Sabor de avelã, café, chocolate, tostado e um leve toque de alcaçuz. Retrogosto adocicado, levemente ácido ao final.

12 oz bottle pours clear brown with very little head. Aroma is all hazelnut. Taste is nuts, toast and hints of coffee. Smooth finish. Great nut brown ale!

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Couleur ambrée foncée. Nez noisette à fond effectivement. Palais décevant, peu de CO2, peu de corps. Très bof.

HuskerTan (983) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle. A- Nuts, hazelnut, slightly sour. A- Dark brown color, hazy liquid, light brown head. T- Nutty, hazelnut, pecan, subtle dark fruits, watery. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, slightly sweet finish. O- This one dumbfounded me. I poured it into my glass and the head just kept growing and growing like there was miracle grow in this damn beer. I had to spoon it out because it wouldn’t stop building. The hazelnut was certainly there and a lot of it but there was also a weird chemical like aroma and taste that really turned me off. Not even close to what I wanted from this.

Clear brown pour with almost no head. For an extract-added concoction, the aroma is a little weird - hazelnut, yes, but also a strange chemically smell. Flavor is much better - lots of nut and some sweet malt. Pretty tasty stuff. Fairly smooth, and nice aftertaste.

hawthorne00 (2885) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle. Brown with a pale beige head that lasts well. Aroma of toffee and hazelnuts, some vanilla. Taste is much the same, only less so. Sweet and rather bland, low bitterness. A little spicy at the end. OK. [edit] The last quarter of the bottle is increasingly disagreeable. Sure smells like freshly roasted hazelnuts though.
