UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle: Swampy brown with a copper edge tint, light clarity & light haze throughout; a soapy, beige head stretched out thinly on top. Aroma is full force sticky toffee, more so than hazelnut even. Actually only a very mild hazelnut tone in the aroma. Slightly artificial, like concentrate with an undertone of residual sweetness. Off-notes of wet cardboard & dry rot... What? Is this oxidized already? Hazelnut is more relevant on the palate... Hazelnut, cola, toffee, dry cocoa powder, & nuts, leading into a lasting woodsy & earthy finish. Iím getting that weird, wet cardboard flavor & itís really turning me off. Not as sweet as I was expecting... Rather dry, nutty aftertaste. Wasnít a huge fan of this one... Not sure what that cardboard was all about. Iíd like to try another bottle to see if things are different, but I wonít be rushing to do so.

Bomber. Poured reddish brown, tan head mild lacing. Aroma of hazelnut and malts. Taste is also lots of hazelnut but seemed a bit on the watery side. Overall not bad, easy to drink.

Nose is tomato soup, flavor is milk chocolate, honey, vanilla, dried fruits, tomato soup, light herbs. Medium sweet, medium roasty bitter. Finish is medium lasting roasty bittersweet. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Easy dessert beer, canít feel any hazelnut but very unique and interesting, good one.

jbruner (3190) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Pours a deep brown on tap with thin ring of khaki head that leaves light lace. Aroma of sweet nuttiness and caramel malts. Taste is like drinking hazelnut coffee, but not over the top. Definitely a dessert beer, nice balance though.
