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.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Bottle in fall variety pack. Poured into glass dark brown with off white head. Aroma of hazelnut, coffee and some toffee. Taste brings out brown sugar sweetness, roasty malts, some vanilla and bitterness. Pretty good actually!

KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear medium brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that reduced down to a medium film and large collar with fair runny lacing. The aroma was most definitely loaded with Hazelnut and also had a toasted caramel malt and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a slight coffee roastiness. The taste was malty, nutty and lightly sweet with a hint of caramel early on, with the finish possessing a mild toffee presence and a roasty coffee ending. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with the roasty sweet nutty taste fading ever so slowly into the back ground. Mouthfeel was a step or two below medium in body and quite creamy in texture with a good solid medium carbonation. Overall a fantastic, unique tasting Brown Ale that had all the flavors blending so well that it made this drinking experience simply wonderful. Only thing I wish is that they sold it in six packs year round...

Bottle poured a clear reddish brown hue w/ an off-white frothy mostly diminishing head and minor lacing. Medium aroma of dough, caramel, and amaretto. Initial flavor is heavy sweet to a faint bitter finish of short duration. Taste of vanilla flavoring, hazelnut flavoring, almond extract and sweet caramel. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, and a long lasting flavorings in the finish.
