3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong nutty aroma as soon as the bottle is opened. Good nutty flavor and some mild caramel. Very sweet - more than to my liking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Doesn’t dissapoint with the hazelnut flavors. Tastes like nutela spread with maybe some cocoa. Seasonal and limited time sam adams brews all seem to hav a weak palate...other than that not bad.

Nice brown ale with nice caramel, hazelnut taste. I have only seen it the winter sample packs which is a shame since I would buy this beer on its own.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Pours an ambery brown color with a light brown head. Smells like a bunch of nuts. And some coffee. Taste is quite nutty as well. Many nuts in this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has a roasted malt aroma. Toasted malt taste, with a bit of a nutty flavor as well. Nice, maybe a bit odd, but is a fairly nice flavor, maybe a bit fake flavor but descent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
