12oz in MA. Light greyish brown. Big perfume aroma, hazelnut coffee creamer. Oddly artificial or pumped up nut malts. Liquid tootsie roll essence. Strong bodied but not my favorite.

Wow pleasantly surprised with this. A 12 pack was broken up and was able to pick up just one of these and wasnít expecting much. I was thinking that it would be like a lot of beers that advertise a flavor and not deliver. Totally wrong nice brown ale with noticeable hazelnut flavor.

Pours an excellent deep ruby brown with lasting head and good lacing. Aroma is very good, tons of hazelnuts, caramel, brown sugar, and light holiday spice. Taste is nice as well, with an earthy malt base to the hazelnut flavor. Great beer.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a ruby-brown color with a medium sized foamy brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sour nut, a strong vegetal presence and a hint of dark fruits. The flavor was definite hazelnut with toffee, sour caramel, a hint of vegetal malts and cocoa. Long finish of hazelnut and cocoa. Medium body though somewhat undercarbonated. Ok.

Pours an amber brown with a medium-sized head. Nutty flavor and aroma. Not as rich or full-bodied as I expected but not bad, either.

The Hazel Brown pours a very deep amber brown with a thick, frothy sand-colored head that lasts and lasts leaving thick lacing. The aroma is hazelnut and spice. The flavor is dominated by hazelnut with spice and a touch of pine hops. This brown is packed with flavor. I am definitely amazed with how much this brew has to offer. Definitely worth trying.

Bottle from Sam Adams mixed 12 packs. Pours a dark reddish amber. Large tan head. Big sweet nutty aroma. Sweet nutty flavor. I donít know much about hazelnuts, but Iím imagining that this is what they taste like. This beer is certainly all about nuts and thatís OK. I found it tasty. Palate was on the thin side, but still a nice seasonal beer.
