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.

Bottle. Pours a dark toffee color with a small head. Nose is very sweet and nutty, light toffee and peanut brittle. Palate is lightly sticky with some light fizzy. Flavors of sticky nuts, caramel, toffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer pours a rich, ruby brown color with a soft, but thick and pillow-like tan head. The nose is full of roasted malt, caramel, nuts, toffee and bread. The body is velvety smooth and very drinkable. The flavors are absolutely delicious, with a smooth and balanced character. I taste plenty of caramel malt and toffee, with hints of nuts, whiskey and rye. The finish is semi-sweet, with more notes of nuts, caramel and toffee. This is probably one of the best brown ales Iíve tasted.

Drank while shopping in whole foods. Very nutty. Reminds me of fall. Carmely brown color. Straight hazelnut flavor with a brown sugar a lite hop bite of a finish. Good times are ahead.

A poor representation of a good style. Doesn?t compare to the Rogue hazel nut brown. Light hazelnut aroma, bland upfront but smooth to drink and short finish. Nothing special...stick with the Boston lager or honey porter over drinking this

Aurelius (4197) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 Lightly tannic, light diacetyl, toasted, lightly sweet hazelnut aroma - well done. Really good looking brew - ruby, dark brown, clingy, spotty head. Informative but bad label. Smooth, nicely roast-bitter, good nutty sweetness. Medium-to-session weight, fine grained effervescence without being fizzy. Hazel/coffee vapors in the finish. A quality beer of which the discriminating beer drinker could consume bathtub-like quantities. Walmart, Thomasville Road, part of a fall mixpack.

Bottle. Very similar to the hazelnut longshot from í96. Loved that one and love this one. Wish I could buy this in a six pack. Deep brown color. Yes, it had a slight hazelnut aroma but had better hazelnut taste. Love it.

Nice rich brownish red hue; aromas detected include caramel; especially, after warming up a bit. Decent hops detected in finish. Fairly light mouthfeel but really quite pleasant! Nice fall warmer!

Suttree (5148) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2012
This was in a six pack of Noble Pils that I bought. Apparently someone really wanted a single Noble and put this one in itís place. So, Surprise Rating! Thanks, Food City guy who is kind of a jerk! Anyway, smells nice enough - Hazelnut, toffee and caramel, plus some coffee. Flavor is kind of a roasted pecan, hazelnut, some coffee and a dryish, woody finish. Now I donít have buy the Fall mix pack.

Pours a clear darkish brown color with a big frothy white head that lingers a long time. Aroma has a very big hazelnut smell to go along with a bit of caramel and soap. Taste is a little sweet and very nutty. Some spicy hops come through a bit too. Pretty smooth with moderate carbonation. Medium body. This beer does make me think of autumn. Not very complex and a bit watered down but a decent nutty brown that goes down smooth.

Pours a clear copper with a thin white head that stays. Aromas of milk chocolate and caramel. Taste has a good amount of sweet caramel lingering with some hops coming through in the back end. A bit of a watery finish but overall not bad, just nothing memorable here.
