1.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A little roasty, a little nutty in the aroma. No head at all. Oh wow, this is really bad. This tastes like it was overcarbonated and then wetn flat. Not good. I’m not liking this brewery too much. However, for this beer, with all these high scores, I’m wondering if their lines need to be cleaned or something else has happened to this beer recently.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2006 Draught at the brewpub. Clear nut brown. Dominated by roasty malt. Light bodied wtih clean mouthfeel. Despite the low hop rate the addition of hazelnut is barely noticable. Instead this beer is carried by the roasty malt. Salty finish with low bitterness. A good brown!

Even better than they dubbel down. This one was a hit, we even got a 2nd pitcher and had to get people to take the blonde for us so we could get some more of this.
