Bottle into pint glass, cloudy copper-brown color with tan head. Aroma of hazelnuts, chocolate and rich caramel malt. Taste adds notes of toast and chocolate milk. Medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with light roasty sweet finish. Nutella beer describes this pretty well, I found it quite tasty.

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 (1624) - 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 (293) - 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.
