Bomber from South Bay Drugs. Pours ruddy copper with a foamy 3 finger beige/tan head. Aroma seems spicey. Mildly so. Light caramel notes. Medium body with frothy carbonation. The flavor is rummy. Nuttiness comes right after. Then some sharp spice - like you’d get at xmas or in a mixed drink. But the flavor keeps coming back to a greasy nuttiness that does suggest hazelnut. Yep. It does. Maybe my least favorite John John so far. Hard to beat the juniper version!

heemer77 (5102) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Dark brown and rusty red with a yellowish khaki head. The nose is strong toffee with some of the hazelnuts. Then there is also bread and a little bit of rum. The taste has a fair amount of the rum and a little of the spice. Then there is alcohol and toffee. This is nice and a little dry. Nicely done, but it comes across as a little more alcoholic than it is listed.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Sampled in San Francisco at the Alehouse. Really disappointed in this one. Really didn’t have much flavor to it. It was smooth and crisp, just really lacking much malts or hops. Nice brew.

Travlr (11976) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Draft at Birreria Paradiso. Amber color with a solid beige head and massive lacing. Aroma and taste of nutella. A bit on the sweet side, but overall very nice.

TheEpeeist (3364) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2010
22 oz bottle. Clear tawny brown with a resilient beige head. Nose is toffee, hazelnut and wet wood; oddly muted for the bold components. Flabby medium body, kind of watery. Taste is brown sugar, burnt nuts, rum and lime. The barrel has sapped much of what i liked in the base brew. Sadly disappointing.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4943) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Sampled on draft this beer poured a very dark brown color with a small beige head that produced some lacing. The aroma was sweetish, woody and malty with touches of toast, nut and smoke. The flavor was dry, malty and a bit roasty with touches of bourbon, nut and cocoa. The finish was long, dry, smoky and woody. Fairly full bodied. Ok.

3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2010
draft. clear bronze with a creamy tan head. toffee and honey-drizzled hazelnut nose - sweetness medium to high. rum character is low, oak character is low (seems to be a theme with these JJ releases). nutty malt is mostly sweet and chewy. medium body. thin finish. not the biggest fan of the hazelnut, and this version honestly doesn’t seem that different from the untouched hazelnut nectar.

mcberko (6562) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
Sampled on tap at the Alibi Room, pours a light brown. Aroma of subtle nuts, roasted malts and hazelnuts. Flavour is somewhat muted with nuts, wood, roasted malts and various nuts - not close to the Hazelnut Brown Nectar.

TheBeerGod (5263) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown with a short tan head. Aroma is sweet malt, candied nuts, spicy notes, and chocolate. Taste is sweet malt, strong nuttiness, chocolate covered nuts, spicy notes and cocoa. Body is medium with a very soft carbonation. Almost slick, at times. Ends with more spicy notes, strong nutty flavors, sweet malt, light chocolate and cocoa. Tasty!

Clark reddish brown with a fizzy head. Rum and hazel nut aroma and taste with spiced rum finish. Good hazel nut and cinnamon notes throughout.
