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.

Draft at ebp. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and sudsy light tan head. Lots of sheety lace. Big tangy nose of aluminum and overripe dates. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Flattish mid palate with butterscotch, aluminum, and overripe tree fruit. Tangy finish.

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

11/6/12. 12oz bottle from Publix. Decent brown pour, plenty of red and definitely clear under the light, under a nice khaki head that cuts quickly but laces plenty with every sip. Huge nutty aroma with plenty of hazelnut and touches of caramel and chocolate. The flavor basically mimics the aroma’s prediction, showing a ton of nuttiness with lingering chocolate and caramel. This is perhaps a bit sweet and nutty for me, but overall it’s not bad.

I didn’t know buckwheat wasn’t wheat. Oh well. Had a mini Greens tasting. I’d passed for a while cause these are 6.50 for 500 ml of gluten free...weirdness, as it turns out. His "Dubbel" really fell into no style. Looked like a Dubbel but had an odd sweetness above hints of belgian yeast and an even odder sour note that wasn’t enough to be cool - just enough to be off."

Pours a deep brown .. mild foam, same with lacing .. light hazelnut mostly, some roasted nut and bark .. pleasing sweetness .. light mouthfeel .. . quite an impressive brown, although just a bit thin to be great.. . .

If you had three apples and four oranges in one hand and four apples and three oranges in other hand, what would you have ? ...

The beer pours a clear, dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of toffee and some hazelnut character. The flavor is very similar. There is a good amount of sweet chocolate and toasted nuts, as well as a hint of toffee and caramel. The beer is very sweet and has no real hop character to it. I also get a light hint of mint, but that may be my imagination. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

PorterPounder (5600) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Killearn - 12 oz bottle - part of the Fall Variety pack. Pours a dark copper with an initial bubbly off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma has some nice toffee accents, a hint of earthy potting soil. Flavor has some nice solid hazelnut notes, a hint of vanilla, a touch of Frangelico. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Fairly decent.

(12oz bottle thanks to Blutt59) clear medium to light brown, wispy tan bubbles with soapy edge bubbles. Nose of rich hazelnut, sweet cream, nutty, fairly rich. Taste of hazelnuts, nutella spread, brown sugar, nice finish. Really good.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent brown with light beige head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells of hazelnut.Tastes the same with a bit of hops. Average on the palate. Better than I expected.
