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.

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. Iíd give it a B+ rating.

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

Samuel Adams Hazel Brown is a very clear, deep reddish brown ale topped with a dense, off white foam that has outstanding retention and lacing. Caramel, toffee and hazelnut are in the first sniff. There is some roastiness and maybe some grass. Soft, dry and medium bodied, it leaves the tongue a little chalky. This is bursting with hazelnut. Itís not huge or overpowering. The flavors all melt very well. Thereís just enough bitterness to avoid seeming sweet at all. This is so smooth and easy. It could be a session ale any time.

I am not a huge fan of brown ales but this one is ok. Very nutty and not to much additional spice.

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.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2012
12oz bottle. Dark brown color, clear, not much head. Strong hazelnut & spice aroma. Light/medium body, average carbonation. This might be the "nuttiest" beer Iíve ever had, but surprisingly, itís not overpowering or unpleasant. Leave it to Sam to figure it out. A nice novelty.

Strong nutty aroma as soon as the bottle is opened. Good nutty flavor and some mild caramel. Very sweet - more than to my liking.

vikingguy (993) - 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 Iíd drink everyday.

Doesnít 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.
