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.

12 ounce bottle from a sample pack. One of the best new Sam Adams creations I have tried recently. mellow but with a good twist of hazelnut in the initial taste. Good coffee like finish. Would buy again

Thisis12ptfont (863) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Sweet brown sugar and nuts on the aroma. Dark magenta in color with a very thin foam. Cloudy maple, brown sugar and coffee flavors. Wood and nuts floating about in the back of the palate. There is a sligh spice on the finish. Overall, pleasantly sweet nutty maple and brown sugar overtones with nuts in the back. Well done. I’d give it a B+ rating.

10/23/2012 - From notes - Pint pour of hazelnut brownish amber with a two finger off white head. Nose is hazelnut, of course, but also light coffee. Stale water... kinda smooth, no amazing. Flavor is roasted, smooth malt, light coffee notes. More hazelnut, and light sweetness. Light to medium body with mild lacing.

vikingguy (836) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Pours a crystal clear reddish brown color with foamy off-white head. Aroma of cocoa and caramel malt. Taste is sweet and nutty...liquid Nutella. Can taste the hazelnut flavor with notes of cocoa and caramel malt. Balanced with some mild bitterness. This has good flavor but not a beer I’d drink everyday.

12 oz bottle from a variety pack. Pours light brown with a long lasting off-white head. Aroma is very nutty, malty with hints of hops. Body is light to medium, slightly crisp. Taste is mostly hazelnuts, toffee balanced by earthy hops. Finish is medium, hazelnutty. Good brew if you like hazelnuts.

hfmejias (809) - Dover, Delaware, USA - AUG 9, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Clear dark brown with a off white head and decent lacing on the glass. Very nice aroma, hazelnut, roasted malts and maybe some coffee? Taste is very consistent definitely nutty but well balanced with malts and even some hops. It’s a good beer, very easy to drink, flavors come to life as it warms up.
