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.

Dark brown pour. Small off white head. No lacing. Hazelnut and maple syrup aroma. Maple syrup taste. Way too sweet.

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.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle… RBSG 2014This 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!

BBB63 (6019) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 23, 2014
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%)

Draft. Brown pour, tan head. Good retention/lace. Aroma of hazelnut, peanut, toffee, chocolate. Taste is sweet, hazelnut, peanut, toffee, caramel. Palate is soft, sticky, sweet finish.

Bottle - Sweet hazelnut and chocolate, think Malt Teaser. Clear maroon with a chocolate head. Tastes just as it smells. Fun desert beer.

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.
