4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amberish copper with a thin sticky white head. Nose is full of hazelnut tones and biscuity cocoa-ness. Flavor is rich with hazelnut and light milk chocolate tones. Basically tastes like the beer form of a ferot rochert. Lots of hazelnut, a bit of chocolate, on a medium body. Lovely!

Bottle: The aroma consists of cocoa, hazelnuts, caramel, and some vanilla. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with cocoa and caramel. The finish has light-moderate hazelnuts and vanilla extract. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, itís a little on the sweet side for me.

Bottle shared by my brother. Clear copper in color with a medium tan head. Aroma of hazelnut, malt and caramel. Malty flavor with hazelnut character throughout and a dry, roasty finish. Flavor was a bit more bland than I expected based on the nose, but overall a decent beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a ruby-brown color with a medium sized foamy brown head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sour nut, a strong vegetal presence and a hint of dark fruits. The flavor was definite hazelnut with toffee, sour caramel, a hint of vegetal malts and cocoa. Long finish of hazelnut and cocoa. Medium body though somewhat undercarbonated. Ok.

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.

This was in a six pack of Noble Pils that I bought. Apparently someone really wanted a single Noble and put this one in itís place. So, Surprise Rating! Thanks, Food City guy who is kind of a jerk! Anyway, smells nice enough - Hazelnut, toffee and caramel, plus some coffee. Flavor is kind of a roasted pecan, hazelnut, some coffee and a dryish, woody finish. Now I donít have buy the Fall mix pack.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Pours a clear light chestnut brown body under a small wispy off white head. The nose is really sweet and loaded with hazelnut, smells a bit artificial. The flavor is just as sweet as expected, tastes like hazelnut coffee with a light nuttiness and some caramel on the finish. A little too artificial and sweet with not enough body to back up the flavoring. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a too long lingering hazelnut finish. Iíll take a pass on this one if a second go around comes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a rather large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light caramel malt with light traces of hazelnut. Taste is a pretty easy to drink mix of light caramel malt with some notes of hazelnut and light residual sugar. Body is a bit light with good carbonation. Easy drinking with limited complexity.

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
