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. 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.

Boutip (5951) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2012
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.

kramer (5912) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2014
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.

vyvvy (5893) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Pours dark brown with a bronze hue and large beige head. The aroma has lots of hazelnuts, heavy toast/roast malt, some coffee bitterness and moderate sweetness. Really nice and pleasing aroma. It has a medium smooth body that has a bit of roughness when the lightly sharp carbonation hits. The flavor starts with nice toasted malt, heavy hazelnut, cream and roasty bitterness. The finish has more bitterness (malt?, hops?), pepper and heavy nuttiness. Very nice.

joeneugs (5866) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 24, 2012
12 oz. bottle. It pours an orange/brown with a small off white head. The aroma is pleasantly toasty with notes of hazelnuts. Pretty dry. The flavor is a bit sweeter with stronger notes of hazelnut creamer and toasted malt. The body is medium. Pretty simple and straight forward. I appreciated that this wasnít too cloying with the artificial hazelnut flavor you get with these kind of brews. The emphasis was more on the dry, toasty malt. Pretty enjoyable brown ale.

thedm (5799) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2013
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a small sized head of foamy light brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a typically carbonated hazy with floating yeast chunks light cola brown colored body and an excellent lacing. The nice aroma was nutty and brown malt. The semi-flat crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium malty aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of hazelnut sweet and brown malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

nuplastikk (5797) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2013
12oz bottle. Filtered copper-brown-amber body. Steady, foamy off-white head. Big toffee, caramel tones. Really has a big hazelnut flavor, this is a beer they should make sixpacks out of. Surprisingly impressive. Medium bodied, drinkable. Bold flavors, balanced sweetness.

jgb9348 (5727) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Rich deep brown coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall tan head and a nice copper glow at the bottom. Aroma of coffee, nuts, earth, malt, pistachios, hazelnuts and a lot of nutty depth - very nice. Medium-bodied; Slight coffee flavours up front with a rather large bitterness, but the caramel and earthy malts follow behind with a super strong hazelnut flavour that persists. Aftertaste shows quite the depth with the malt and nuts really coming through, a little bit of sugar and some minor bitterness at the end. Overall, a great nut brown with an amazing hazelnut flavour throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle pulled from a sampler case, purchased from Costco in Arlington (Pentagon City) on 20-October-2013 for US$25.99/24 pack, sampled at home a few steps away from Costco on 15-December-2013.
