Bottle to glass shaker. Pours a cloudy amber - brown color with a medium tan head. You can smell the hazelnut on the nose. Has a great up front taste & mouthfeel, however the aftertaste leaves tart note. Oh well, overall it’s pretty good.

From decervecitas. In Teku glass. After dinner. Too much hazelnut here, in aroma and aftertaste, so much that even makes me want to puke. I like hazelnuts, but this is excessive

Ambar oscura, rojiza. Espuma ocre de poca duración. Deja película. Clara avellana en el aroma. En boca resulta aguada, pero con un sabor agradable, malteada, con la avellana predominando, y notas de chocolate. Rica pero sin cuerpo.

Been drinking this for years and won’t event get sick of it. Beautiful beer with a great brownish red color, aroma like nutty molasses, taste is smooth with a little sweetness and a nice subtle hazelnut flavor.

Bottle. Light but nice aroma of hazelnut and roast, hint of toffee and caramel. Taste is dry, light sweet and bitter. Flavor of nuts, caramel, hint of citrus seeds at aftertaste.

I bought this bottle in a Monoprix, in Paris. I drank it tonight, relax at home, during this nice but cold day. In my point of view, it is a delicious beer, original. First, there is a nice brown color, thin foam, middle low carbonation. The first impression is that you drink a doppelbock. There is a side of malt, toffee, little smocked but there is a really nice touch of nutd at the final, discreet presence of hop and a bit watery, refreshing and pleasant for the soul.

Orangy colored pour. Loads of hazelnut on the nose, reminds me of belgian chocolates. Yum yum dessert. In addition to the hazelnut milk chocolate, slight notes of coffee, sweet malts, bitterness from coffee. Very smooth and buttery. Very focused flavor profile, yet shows nice restraint.

Bottle, 355mL. Home. A sparkling brown amber beer with a medium beige "oily" head ; average retention. Hazelnut, roast, caramel, red berries. Medium sweet, round, light dry bitter refreshing. Light to medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, sweet toffee finish. Overall, a good brown ale ; nice roasty character.

Ruby amber pour with nearly no head. Very nutty nose. Weak, soft mouthfeel. Uneventful flavor. Some nuttiness. Finishes bitterly.
