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.

Bottle:   Ruby colored brown, large foamy eggshell colored head, nice lacing.   Soft hazelnut and toasted malts on the nose.   Somewhat of a spritzy tongue, malty, toasty, with soft hazelnuts.   Decent beer so far, only wished it were a bit sweeter and a bit more malty/chewy.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with lots of Hazelnut, slight bakers chocolate, and toasted malts.   Overall a nice Brown Ale, very little hops.   Enjoyable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6457) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2013
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.

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. Poured clear deep amber brown with a large tan head that laces well. Aroma is caramel and bread, with light brown sugar and nutty notes. Flavor is medium sweet caramel-molasses, lightly spicy and nutty with a very light bitter earthy finish. Pretty good, for a brown ale...

The beer pours a clear, dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is full of toffee and some hazelnut character. The flavor is very similar. There is a good amount of sweet chocolate and toasted nuts, as well as a hint of toffee and caramel. The beer is very sweet and has no real hop character to it. I also get a light hint of mint, but that may be my imagination. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(12oz bottle thanks to Blutt59) clear medium to light brown, wispy tan bubbles with soapy edge bubbles. Nose of rich hazelnut, sweet cream, nutty, fairly rich. Taste of hazelnuts, nutella spread, brown sugar, nice finish. Really good.

Suttree (5928) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2012
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.

TheBeerGod (5914) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 24, 2012
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.

AirForceHops (5859) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 26, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Fall 12 pack. Used a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Typical medium brown color with real thin head. Normal amount of carbonation. Light hazel nut and light chocolate. Taste is above average with lingering hints of Hazelnut coffee, vanilla and toffee. Not overly sweet and balanced nicely. Body is on the lighter side of medium. Nicely done and I wanted another so... it drinks pretty well for me.
