COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Clear, deep copper-brown with a lasting half inch of sticky foam. Nose is roast hazelnut, sweetened cocoa, soured cream and toffee. Flavor is the same rich tasty stuff. Near-medium body is to the sweet side, but balanced by tingly acidity from the roast and a high amount of carbonation.

Bottle from Mari’s. Pours brown with a finger of off-white head, some bubbles around the sides of the glass. The aroma has nuts, vanilla, some caramel and a little lactose in there. The taste has a nice, soft hazelnut and vanilla pop with a decent brown ale backbone. The finish trails back to the nuts and vanilla again. Pretty decent brew..

Sweet nuttiness. The main problem with this beer is the base brown ale is just ok.

b3shine (5138) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent brown with light beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells of hazelnut.Tastes the same with a bit of hops. Average on the palate. Better than I expected.

The last to sample in my Autumn sampler pack. Deep rich brown body with a medium beige head that stuck around. Aroma has hints of coffee and chocolate. Taste is chocolate, toffee with a spice after note that finished clean. Impressed!

MaBeer1972 (1262) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Part of a mix pack procured from Julios. A light clear brown brew with a light tan colored head. Aroma is slightly nutty and sweet. Flavor is very well balanced. Nice and malty. Not overly sweet. Lingering toffee and nutty flavors.

mcdav2154 (436) - GERMANY - OCT 11, 2012
Sweet hazelnut and caramel on the front with a good size bite of hops at the end. Notes of buttered bread. Not too bad. No lacing.

Lightrider (300) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle into a goblet. Aroma is that of malt and hazel nut. Pour is a nice dark brown gold with a nice brown head. Taste is hazel nut with an earthy malt. Finish is a clean nutty malt, a very nice ale.

MrBunn (2438) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Bottle. Pours a nice brown with a decent head and aromas of brown sugar and leaves. Flavor is alright for a brown but a little directionless. Decent but uninspiring.

Another good but not great samuel adams beer. Good flavor, I get a note of cherry for some reason. Good rich fall beer.
