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.

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 aromaís prediction, showing a ton of nuttiness with lingering chocolate and caramel. This is perhaps a bit sweet and nutty for me, but overall itís not bad.

SudsMcDuff (7660) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2012
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 ? ...

* Very large hands...

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.

Ughsmash (7501) - 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.

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.

PorterPounder (6898) - 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.

radagast83 (6657) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Had this 12oz bottle from one of those Sam Adams box-sets. Poured a creamy brown color with an off-white head. Aroma was pretty distinct hazelnuts with some nice roasted nutty character and some sweet toasted malts. Flavor was hazelnuts, with some toffee and caramel. Perhaps it is a bit artificial, but I enjoyed the brew enough I think.

onceblind (6623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Clear amberish copper with a thin sticky white head. Nose is full of hazelnut tones and biscuity cocoa-ness. Flavor is rich with hazelnut and light milk chocolate tones. Basically tastes like the beer form of a ferot rochert. Lots of hazelnut, a bit of chocolate, on a medium body. Lovely!

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle:   Ruby colored brown, large foamy eggshell colored head, nice lacing.   Soft hazelnut and toasted malts on the nose.   Somewhat of a spritzy tongue, malty, toasty, with soft hazelnuts.   Decent beer so far, only wished it were a bit sweeter and a bit more malty/chewy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with lots of Hazelnut, slight bakers chocolate, and toasted malts.   Overall a nice Brown Ale, very little hops.   Enjoyable.
