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.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Jay! Dark reddish brown pour, aroma brought big vanilla, hazelnuts, some slight roast, caramel and biscuity malts, hints of earth and spice. Taste is a nice mix of caramel, vanilla, big, big sweet hazelnuts, some earth and spice, touch of bread, finishing fairly sweet. Interesting, lots of hazelnut.

Ughsmash (7260) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear, medium reddish-brown with a tall, creamy off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet hazelnuts, bready notes, and toffee with light, fresh earth and vanilla around.. nice. The flavor found more hazelnuts plus caramel, vanilla, and biscuity malts at the core.. dry earthy bitterness and more vanilla around.. went back to the hazelnuts on the finish. Light-medium bodied and scratchy on the palate.. a bit watery on the middle.. overall a decent drinker, but not much more.

Bottle from my girlfriends mom. Pours hazy brown with a white head. Nutty sweet and lightly roasted malts, with lighter toasted bready notes. Decent.
