3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on 8/17/2012. This brown ale pours a medium brown color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, sweet and nutty. A medium to full bodied brown ale. The malts are caramel, bready, nutty and sweet. The hops are earthy. Nice carbonation. A nice malty and nutty brown ale, with a nice nutty character. Much better than I was expecting. Perhaps a touch sweet. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is somewhat sweet

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark almost cola-colored brown pour with a medium, frothy tan head. Aroma is hazelnut, caramel, soft chocolate and dessert notes. Rather appetizing, to be honest. Taste is chocolate and hazelnut, hazelnut cake, caramel and more dessert notes. Touch of bitterness here. Body is medium with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Ends with more dominant hazelnut, chocolate, cocoa notes, coffee, hazelnut cake and light earthiness.
