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.

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 (3908) - 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 ’96. 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!

This was in a six pack of Noble Pils that I bought. Apparently someone really wanted a single Noble and put this one in it’s 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 don’t 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.

TomTron (355) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - SEP 12, 2012
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.

Butters (3684) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Pours a clear dark brown with ring of khaki head. Nose is astoundingly good toffee and hazelnut creamer. Flavor is even more so. also with hints of cocoa that leaves the overall impression on the taste buds as ’tootsie roll’ but in the best possible way. Not fake or syrupy. Very nice. But definitely smells better than it tastes. Kinda the way creme brule is.

guzzler67 (1484) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Clear mahogany appearance with a large, thick tan head and good lacing. Nutty, caramel malt aroma paired with chocolate. Taste did not stray far from what the aroma promised, although the aftertaste was a little earthier. Hops stayed well hidden. Kept thinking ’carbonated YooHoo’.

scarletfire65 (866) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Intense aroma of hazelnuts, butter, toffee, Werther’s Originals candies. Very nutty flavor, toasty, Frangelico, surprisingly not overly sweet (for a Sam Adams), crisp and dry finish with lingering toasty nuttiness. Tastes fresh and bright despite the deep flavor profile. A slight artificial feel keeps it below a "4", but great balance and depth none the less.
