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 bottle from winter sampler pack. Poured a thin brown into the pint glass, overwhelming aroma of roasted hazelnuts. You better like that taste if your going to try this one. Nice caramel malt smoothness combines with the richness of the hazelnut and makes an enjoyable beer but not a session ale, the flavor becomes cloying and too sweet for having more than one or two.

Modest starting head. Shrinks to ring lace. Clear, brown color. Smells like burnt molasses with hazelnuts. Lots of toast. Sweeter taste with a strong deep roast of hazelnuts. A bit sweet. Thin bodied and high in the carbonation. Short aftertaste. Relatively non-descript.

this beer pours a brown color with a nice thick tan head that leaves lots of lacing. the aroma was hazelnut, nuttiness, coffee, caramel, chocolate. there is so much sweetness in the aroma. the flavor is identical to the aroma. this beer is very good in my opinion and i highly recommend it,

Wow, I am a big fan of hazelnut. I love hazelnut coffee, candles, etc. So when i tried this beer I was immediately in love. I’ve had hazelnut beers by other well rated breweries, but this is my favorite.

Rich brown in color, smooth and full of flavor, pours nice with a short but thick head. Overall a good brew.

jgb9348 (4749) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Rich deep brown coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall tan head and a nice copper glow at the bottom. Aroma of coffee, nuts, earth, malt, pistachios, hazelnuts and a lot of nutty depth - very nice. Medium-bodied; Slight coffee flavours up front with a rather large bitterness, but the caramel and earthy malts follow behind with a super strong hazelnut flavour that persists. Aftertaste shows quite the depth with the malt and nuts really coming through, a little bit of sugar and some minor bitterness at the end. Overall, a great nut brown with an amazing hazelnut flavour throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle pulled from a sampler case, purchased from Costco in Arlington (Pentagon City) on 20-October-2013 for US$25.99/24 pack, sampled at home a few steps away from Costco on 15-December-2013.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an April expiration date (no year associated with that month). Handsome looking medium mahogany pour with a lingering off-white head. The aroma is malty and full of toffee and hazelnuts as promised. Spicy and toasty to say the least. Inviting. The body is medium to full. The taste has a subtle bitterness but a downplayed hop character. It’s all about the hazelnuts, which was nice.

Poured from 12oz bottle. Flavors of hazelnut are overpowering here. Really not much else comes through. --you've been Dubbed.

The aroma was sweet and nutty. Brown color that was like wood with an typical head. Average weight and carbonation. Was also relatively smooth. Flavors were of hazelnut and a little sweet and woodsy. This did not have a strong roasted malt character that I typically prefer for this style but it worked nonetheless. A decent seasonal.

Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Smells of hazelnut coffee and tastes of creamy buttery chocolate roasted coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
