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.

Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Nice sweet malt aroma with a very very light hint of nut to it. This is a tasty brew and i can see it be a tad higher in nut flavor.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Quite surprised by how tasty this was. Not nutty at all, the sweetness is faint. More than anything else this is creamy. A good beer.

Pours mahogany into a Sam glass. Tan head with excellent retention recedes leaving scant spiders. Sweet hazelnut aromas. Sweet hazelnut and caramel upfront turning dry in the lasting toast, roasted nut and earthy hop finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2013 Lightly tannic, light diacetyl, toasted, lightly sweet hazelnut aroma - well done. Really good looking brew - ruby, dark brown, clingy, spotty head. Informative but bad label. Smooth, nicely roast-bitter, good nutty sweetness. Medium-to-session weight, fine grained effervescence without being fizzy. Hazel/coffee vapors in the finish. A quality beer of which the discriminating beer drinker could consume bathtub-like quantities. Walmart, Thomasville Road, part of a fall mixpack.
