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 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.

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.

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.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Jay! Dark reddish brown pour, aroma brought big vanilla, hazelnuts, some slight roast, caramel and biscuity malts, hints of earth and spice. Taste is a nice mix of caramel, vanilla, big, big sweet hazelnuts, some earth and spice, touch of bread, finishing fairly sweet. Interesting, lots of hazelnut.

Dark red to light brown with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, cloves, and suds. Rate is very rich, hazlenut, roasted malt, creamy very enjoyable taste. Mouthfeel is balanced but lighter than taste would lead.

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 from mariís six pack. Pours brown with an inch of khaki foam that quickly disappears. Nice hazelnut and caramel notes on the nose. Fairly big malt and nutty notes on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid example of style.
