We didn’t like this at all. Very nice nut flavor but quickly overwhelmed by this sweet, acidic yuck taste. One of our least favorite beers! Use caution before buying! You have been warned!

Bottled. No visible foam and slightly hazy. Tastes like toffee, caramel and burned sugar. One of my favorite beers in this category.

355ml bottle from The Beerhive. Small bubbly off white head, decent lacing. Body is slightly hazy ruby-amber. Nose is very nutty, a little chocolate. Flavour is all hazelnut, malt to the fore, only a little bitterness on the finish. Full, rich mouthfeel, little carbonation. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Drank with Thierry in Eindhoven 10-4-2014. Okay beer. A bit watery. Taste a bit sweet, like ’ranja’. A bit watery also. Not bad, but not my thing. Hazelnut taste was okay but also not really my cup of tea.

jhp40219 (256) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 19, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark amber brown with a small khaki head that leaves a bit of lacing that mostly slides back down into the beer. Mild aroma of chocolate, hazelnut, toasted malts, toast. Taste is hazelnut up front with toasted malts, toast, and a bit of chocolate. Quick finish of toasted malts and chocolate. Medium body, thin but not quite watery palate and high carbonation. Interesting. Would like to have more hazelnut flavor, but overall good.
