A truly unique and refreshing beer. The hazelnut flavor isnít tame, and itís surprisingly natural. Itís not too sweet, and itís not too bitter - just a really great fall beer.

Nice brown pour. Aroma of hazelnut, caramel and malts. Taste of hazelnut with a malty backbone. A little light on the palate. Very smooth easy to drink.

A really nice and mellow brown ale. Lots of nutty sweetness throughout the flavor with just a touch of roasted malts. Really nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer pours a clear auburn color with a large off-white head, and the aroma is a strong and pleasing mixture of hazel nuts, toasted malts, and caramel malts. The taste is really nice with the mild umami, slight sweetness, and touch of sourness, and the palate combines a medium body, soft carbonation, creamy texture, and a long malty finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
If you like hazelnut, youíre in good shape because the general tenor of this beer is set by the dominant flavor of hazelnut. The aroma is a bit more subtle. As a brown ale, it isnít special, with a general caramel and very average mass market body. Bottle.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh bottle. Nsoe a little nutty, woody, even stale, woodsy/crushed leaves and faint chocolate. Brown pour with amber highlights and a soapy tan head. Medium-full body is exploding with hazelnuts, great flavor, but thereís an airy/yeasty component thatís off-putting. Toffee and light roast, on the whole actually pretty dry, touch of caramel and light spiciness from noble hops. Rounded with fat malt, nuts last into the aftertaste, not without its flaws but very pleasant for fall!

Delicious. Pours clear brown with a frothy off white cap. Aroma is nuts and chocolate with a spicyness. Flavor is deep chocolate malt, nuts, and a almost Belgian-style spice. Oily in the mouth and a little thicker than most browns. Very good beer indeed.

basically hazelnut candy, sweet and nutty with a bit of oiliness on the tongue.

This beer should nave the word NUT after the Hazel. This is good but too overwhelmingly nutty after each drink. Drinkability is ended without balance of some kind. I guess they prove a point that they have variety but not a well balanced body here. I wouldnít buy this again, and would only drink 1 or 2 if you bought it for me.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown with orangish-red hue and white head. Aroma of bread and nutty malts. Taste is strong hazelnut, malts, grapes, and raisins. There is also a noticeable hop character. Alittle syrupy during the aftertaste.
