3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep dark beer with some ruby highlights when held against the light. Thin brown head. Big nose of hazelnut liquer and vanilla ice cream. The tastes like a shot of Frangellica and Khaluha. Hazelnuts, chocolate, vanilla, lactic acid and something a little artificial. Lots of alcohol. This is a dessert beer meant to be sipped. Interesting big beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow, this is really nice. The beer pours unclear brown with a grayish beige head. The aroma is absolutely incredible, bringing sweet hazelnut, almost sweet ice cream and blueberry blunt together. The flavor brings cream ale notes, a bit sweet and some bitter roasted flavors to end.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft (multiple times). Pours a hazy brown color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma is sweeter malts, hazelnut, vanilla, caramel and hints of chocolate. The flavor is much of the same; sweeter caramel malts, hazelnut, chocolate, vanilla a very light bitterness to the finish. I have found this to be very drinkable for a higher abv (I actually thought it was higher than what is listed) beer. I will have to check a bottle to see if something is going on there.

Hazed brown pour with foamy tan head. Aroma of light chocolate and earthy hops. Sour malt and light chocolate followed by the same earthy hops. Light earthy hops. Just a little to sour for some reason.

Bottle at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Thanks to Beau. Pours clear brown with a moderate, beige foam head. Some light milk chocolate in the aroma. Medium sweet flavor with sweet chocolate, nips of hazelnut coffee, some maple syrup. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, sweet finish, some sticky sugars, burnt toffee, acute hazelnuts, some coffee.
