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.

HighlanderOne (1002) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Poured from bottle. Aroma of coffee and brown sugar. Great lookin mahogany with lacing tan head. Coffee, toffee, hazelnut flavors with caramel, butter and brown sugar as well. My only gripe is that it has a bit watery feel. Otherwise, great stuff.

Almost like drinking a piece of candy. The hazel nut, toffee, and caramel really complement each other well.

improvjock (322) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Bottle. Aroma of hazelnut coffee, roasted malts, and spices. Flavor is complex, creamy, rich, and malty, with hazelnuts, toffee, coffee, and spices. Pretty good, but maybe a bit too sweet.

brenn79 (1519) - Idaho, USA - SEP 28, 2012
12 oz. bottle- Pours dark brown with a nice creamy light tan head. Aroma is very nutty, malt, creamy, spicy. The taste is the same, the Hazel nuttiness really resonates. I do have to say it kind of tastes like imitation hazel extract or something, instead of the real thing. This beer is still quite nice. Carbonation is higher than it has to be, body is a little light. Overall I liked it, a good sittin’ around a warm fire beer.

Samuel Adams Hazel Brown has a very thick, creamy, beige head and a clear, bubbly, brown appearance, with some lacing left behind. The aroma is of hazelnut, roasted, sweet malt, and coffee. The flavor is of hazelnut coffee, sweet malt, some underneath bitterness, wood, and even a beer taste sneaking in. Mouthfeel is medium, and Samuel Adams Hazel Brown finishes soft, mostly dry, mellow, and easy drinking. Overall, this is very good, and I think it’s worth a try. RJT

jandd1983 (2558) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 26, 2012
Sampled at the Artisans Craft Beer Festival 2012. It poured an amber brown color with a tan head. The aroma was caramel, bread, with light brown sugar and some nutty notes. The taste was medium sweet caramel-molasses, lightly spicy and nutty with a very light bitter earthy finish.

More red than brown, medium lingering tan head. Strong aroma of roasted nuts, malt, caramel. Medium body, creamy feel, small amount of carbonation. Flavor caramel coffee, roasted malt. Not bad but maybe a tad too sweet.
