This flavorful dark brown ale has a distinct hazelnut aroma and taste. Slightly sweet caramel and toffee malt notes accentuate the pleasant roasted hazelnut character. This medium-bodied brew finishes smooth with an underlying spiciness from the hops.

12 oz bottle from the fall variety pack. Pours deep brown but looks red in the light; has a medium collapsing beige head. Aroma is caramelly, toffee-ish, nutty. Taste is sweet, roasty, nutty. Nice beer, although the rauchbier from last fall’s variety pack was much more interesting. That one needs a comeback!

AirForceHops (4804) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 26, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Fall 12 pack. Used a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Typical medium brown color with real thin head. Normal amount of carbonation. Light hazel nut and light chocolate. Taste is above average with lingering hints of Hazelnut coffee, vanilla and toffee. Not overly sweet and balanced nicely. Body is on the lighter side of medium. Nicely done and I wanted another so... it drinks pretty well for me.

Fresh bottle to a pint glass. Pours a clear ruby brown with a finger of off white head and little lacing. Aroma is hazelnuts, malt, brown sugar, and grassy hops. Taste is hazelnut, peanut, malts, caramel, and light grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium and easy drinking. Good brown ale.

Pershing (488) - Garland, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Pours a deep reddish brown with a small beige head. Not sure why the head disapeared so fast since I had a freshly cleaned glass. Aroma of toffee coffee and hazelnut hence the name. Sweet taste on the first drink with medium body. Filling finish. One of their better selections.

MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Aroma: bakery, pancakes, chocolate scratch and sniff stickers; Appearance: balsa tan head upon pour that lingers around the edge of the glass, good bubble action, cola brown unless you let some light through the glass, in which case it takes on more of a deep reddish amber color; Taste: pie crust, hazelnut of course, slight caramel, not too much burnt flavor, which is a good thing; Palate: drink one outside in the autumn air so you can add that musty leaf smell to the palate for a truely memorable experience, its really good, but maybe just a little heavier than I would prefer, every so often, after a draught, something sour lingers, but aftertaste is mostly sweet, caramelized sugar; Overall: a good seasonal (autumn) beer, I plan to save one to go with my Thanksgiving leftovers, I probably should have rated this beer higher, but I stick with my original numbers, I’d recommend it.

Pours a a dark amber or brown. Smells and tastes strongly of hazelnut. There is some malt and bread and some sweetness. Some chocolate as well. Sweet and ticky on the tongue.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Aroma and taste - first reaction is Halloween candy...zero bar, Charleston chew, 3 musketeers combo. Less hazelnut and more nougat in taste. Sugary with a weak underlying brown ale base, not sure what the "other natural flavors added" means on the label....
