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.

Dark brown with thick tan head that lasts. The hazelnut aroma is very prominent along with toffee, chocolate, and coffee. Heavy bodied brew that drinks very smooth. Malts kick in on the first swallow. Nicely toasted. Hops are only an afterthought on the finish. Great beer for big dinners on cool nights.

12 oz bottle: Aroma is distinctive hazel nut, smoky malt, a bit of toffee, and a overall roasted scent. Appearance is a clear dark reddish almost brown color with a slightly off white head that lingers. Taste has got a nice brown ale texture, hazel nut, chocolate cake, aqueous, and roasted malt nicely melt together. Palate is medium carbonation in the mouth with an nice hazel nut aftertaste that lingers. Overall, Better than I thought it would be. Cheers!

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 18, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2012 12 oz bottle from a fall mix pack. Pours a sparkling roan brown color with a small off white head that soon dissipates to a fine ring. The aroma is distinct with roasted hazelnuts and Frangelico. The taste is toffee malts forward with a good dose of frangelico liqueur. The palate was a bit thin and the carbonation was lively. Finished short and unsatisfying. Overall: Great aroma and taste but this just fell apart on the finish.

Wittales (714) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Appearance was clear reddish brown with creamy diminishing tannish 1/2 finger head, no lacing. Aromas are sweet toffee, caramel, hazelnut , latte malts upfronts but sublte. Hops are muted like a brown should be, slight spicey yeasts. Taste are nutty, toffee, caramelize malts with deep fruits of fig and touch of mild coffee, yeasts are clean. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with balanced body, then a mild average length even keeled slightly dryish nutty finish. A wonderful brown, warms up well...
