Bottle. Poured a nice rich clear medium to dark brown with an average sized light brown head that was mostly diminishing leaving just a little residue hanging around allowing for good lacing. The aroma was of a nutty caramel malt and a doughy yeast with a nice note of hazelnut, brown sugar and a ever so light touch of coffee. It tasted lightly sweet with hints of caramel and coffee in the beginning. Then it matured into a very malty-nutty flavor with the hazelnut being the most pronounced at the finish, although the flavor could of lasted a little longer on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was medium in body and creamy yet slightly watery in texture as alot of brown ales can be with the carbonation being ever so perfectly soft. Overall a very nice malty nut brown ale, this happens to be my favorite style and this brew fits it very well indeed.

Strong flavors of artificial hazelcut, but very watery, and overly nutty. Not something I’d buy again.

Bottle from Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Clear, dark ruby red. Halo of off white head. Looks the bee’s. Fruity, nutty, gianduja aroma. For me though, the taste is too overpoweringly sweet. It verges on artificial. Quite unpleasant, by the end of the glass.

Tap. Deep brown body with an average, lacing beige head. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, caramel and chocolate notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with a bitter touch. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice brown indeed.
