Bottle. The pour is dark. The aroma is sweet with some hazelnut to it. The taste is very boozy and sweet. Very nice beer.

Flaska 2013. (Thanks biggsbowler). Blytung motorolja i upphällningen. Doft av hasselnöt, nutella, vanilj, bourbon och div efterrätter. Härligt tung och varm. Härligt tung och mäktig. Söt och alkoholvarm, men inte så det stör. Kan förstå om man har svårt för den här. Den är verkligen brutal. Men gillar man den här typen av tungviktare så är den helt fenomenal. Delar en flaska med Karl, som vi inte lyckas få i oss före det blir lite väl sent.

A - Dark black with a bit of reddish-brown around the edges and a thin finger of khaki-chocolate colored head. Fades fairly quickly.
S - Roasted chocolate and dark caramel malts, Bourbon, oak, vanilla, hazelnuts, black licorice, coffee, dark fruits, and some booze.
T - Roasted chocolate and dark caramel malts, hazelnuts, Bourbon, vanilla, oak, black licorice, molasses, dark fruits, coffee, and booze.
M - Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a warming, sweet, and nutty finish.
D - Super bold and complex, and the hazelnuts add some great character.

Loved this beer.
Aroma was full of molasses, dark fruit, chocolate.
Appearance was darn near black with ribbons of burgundy.
Taste was excellent, although I wish I hadn’t let the bottle sit for so long. It really lost a good deal of the macadamia nut flavor, but it remained sweet. Very little ethanol considering the ABV. Perfectly warming. Body was big, lush, velvety.

750ml waxed bottle. Thanks kegbear!!! wow this badboy pours a nice deep brown with a tiny bit of head that immediately dissipates. Aroma is really hazlenutty like a good flavored coffee. A hint of alcohol in it as well. The initial taste is some hot booze but then as it warms it mellows into a delicious nutty taste, this beer reminds a lot of Nutella.You can feel the alcohol in your throat and stomach but not really taste it. Wow damn delicious. Would definitely drink again if I could get my hands on it but thats doubtful since I am not a member of the Reserve Society. Once again The Bruery knocks it out of the park

From a bottle...Thank you Joetheyounger. The pour brown red with minimum white head. Now I love stout and this is amazing for high abv. Candied sugar bourbon, Chocolate, and dark fruit, and slight hazelnut.

Bottle, poured into a tulip. The hazelnut in the wax had been smelling up my beer fridge for weeks. Pours brown with very little head. Aroma is bourbon, chocolate, cherries, and slight hazelnut. Flavor is very similar to regular BT, with maybe a little less burn from the alcohol - the hazelnut smooths it out. Great mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this one, but didn’t get nearly as much hazelnut flavor as I was expecting (and that’s probably a good thing, thinking of Frangelic).
