4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Jet black appearance. The wax from the bottle smells amazing..tempted to chew it like the wax candy from the 70s. Big bold imperial stout flavor with a nice bourbon coating on my tongue, with the hazelnuts on the back end. A bit hot (hey dummy, its 18.5%), but hidden well for the percentage.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
August 13, 2016. Bottle at Bruery Bonanza 2016. 2013 edition.
Black with a very small brown head, quickly dissipating into nothing. Aroma is malty with caramel, figs, raisins, dark sugar, chocolate, slight boozy warming bourbon and very light notes of nuts.
Taste is sweet, malty, slight boozy. Finish is warming bourbon alcohol , sweet caramel, raisins, dark sugars, slight sugary. Full bodied, soft carbonation.
Very nice, warming yet smooth, not a lot of hazelnuts though.

Very good, not great. My third favorite hazelnut beer, after Nooner 8 and Nutuhlu. Itís a bit thin and sweet like all Bruery beers, but the flavors are nice.
