joeneugs (4872) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle at RBWG. It pours a dark brown color with a brown head. The aroma has big notes of cocoa, vanilla and alcohol. Pretty hot actually, but it’s tempered by some nice notes of fruitcake, dates and plum. Finishes rich and warming. I liked this one.

adnielsen (10311) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle @ home, thanks to jcnielsen for sending. Pours a bit hazy, reddish brown appearance with a brown head. Very aromatic- rich toffee coffee creamer, vanilla, buttered pecans, and ice cream. Carbonation is a bit dull. A little high in alcohol. Some notes of berries and prunes but at the forefront is coffee, vanilla, and brown sugar. Not bad.

48FanInCali (829) - California, USA - JAN 26, 2015
12oz bottle - This is a like it or hate it beer. Dark brown pour with ample head but not much retention. Nose is heavy on the hazelnut and sweet malt. Taste is sweet with a big hit of hazelnuts. Much better than Frangelic Mountain Brown but you have to really enjoy sweet beers to enjoy this.

DialSquare (3781) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2015 12oz bottle from Dutch’s in Cincinnati. Blackish-brown pour with a thin khaki head. Aroma of nutty, coffee, sweet dark fruit. Tastes are hazelnut, vanilla, sweet chocolate, caramel. Just a little bitter. Don’t get much of the alcohol at all. Thin but creamy palate. Not one of my favorite styles, but this is super interesting. 2/7/15: on tap at Daily Growler. big complex spiced aroma. tastes are big and sweet up front then balanced well with chalky bitter. lots of chocolaty goodness. not quite as enamored as first try, but really good. would love to get variants.
