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.

arkurzynski (1522) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Murky amber brown pour. Nose of hazelnut and biscuity toasted malt. Flavor is hazelnut and nutty biscuit/toasted malt. Only light sweetness which makes this more of a success. Light and clean.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2014
(bottle, 35.5cl) Ruby brown colour with a beige and short foamy head. Slightly molassy and delicately toasted malty aroma with distinctive and almost perfumed notes of hazelnuts, also toffee and vanilla. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Mildly toasted malt character with notes of toffee, chocolate, vanilla and agasin hazelnuts; moderately sweet and slightly toasted malty finish with lasting notes of hazelnuts, chocolate and vanilla in the aftertaste. Not a very subtle beer, nevertheless easy-going and smooth. 01.IX.14
