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.

Pours a clear cola brown color with a full rocky antique lace head. Hazel nuts quite noticiable in the aroma along with caramel malts. Taste is sweet roasted and caramel malts, hazelnuts, nutmeg and a butterness that rounds it out nicely. Good effort!

Bottle from Sam Adams mixed 12 packs. Pours a dark reddish amber. Large tan head. Big sweet nutty aroma. Sweet nutty flavor. I donít know much about hazelnuts, but Iím imagining that this is what they taste like. This beer is certainly all about nuts and thatís OK. I found it tasty. Palate was on the thin side, but still a nice seasonal beer.

smcolw (617) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Modest starting head. Shrinks to ring lace. Clear, brown color. Smells like burnt molasses with hazelnuts. Lots of toast. Sweeter taste with a strong deep roast of hazelnuts. A bit sweet. Thin bodied and high in the carbonation. Short aftertaste. Relatively non-descript.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - FEB 17, 2014
12 oz bottle from winter sampler pack. Poured a thin brown into the pint glass, overwhelming aroma of roasted hazelnuts. You better like that taste if your going to try this one. Nice caramel malt smoothness combines with the richness of the hazelnut and makes an enjoyable beer but not a session ale, the flavor becomes cloying and too sweet for having more than one or two.

1 year old from the back of my brother-in-laws fridge - here goes nothing: Pours hazy brown with small cream head. Aroma and flavor distinctly nutty with evident caramel and a hint of dates. Body is medium. Finish is mild. Nice brown ale by Sam Adams. Accomplishes what it set out to do, nicely.
