This may be my favorite beer ever. Great body, high on alcohol content, but doesn’t taste like alcohol. The hazelnut shines without overpowering and it’s got a great malt to hop ratio for just the right bitterness to complement the complexity.

Sampled at the RBSG 2014. It poured a brown color with a beige head. The aroma was of malts, nuts, vanilla, caramel and some chocolate. The taste was similar with caramel malts, nuts, chocolate, vanilla a some bitterness. Very nice.

Can’t drink more than a little of this, but it is great. Deep copper pour. Aroma reminds me of bread pudding. Vanilla, hazelnut, chocolate. Taste follows nose with a little alcohol. Great stuff.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle… RBSG 2014… This beer rocks!… Pours new-penny copper with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. The aroma is a luxuriant intermingling of vanilla, hazelnut and chocolate crème. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is a mélange of hazelnut, chocolate crème and cream soda. Heaps of vanilla and a healthy measure of alcohol in here as well. The alcohol is smooth and warming, not annoying. World class beer here!

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ RBSG 2014: (Thanks DrSilverworm) Pours a clean brown hue okay head. Big hazelnut and toffee vapours with a hint of milk chocolate malt balls and some dark fruit as well. A tad boozy and aggressive on the palate with a lot of sugary and nutty goodness. A first I was taken back by this but I ended up liking it (but did wished it was more around 7-8%)

Let’s get into it! This thing is difficult to get a handle on. Heavy on the booze and the hazelnut overtones. Chickow is over-the-top! It doesn’t fire all cylinders, but it is a nice attempt--unique as hell. The malty tones are great to contemplate.
