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.

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.

Rich chocolate and hazelnut flavor, great color and chewiness. You have a hard time telling it’s a big beer.

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!

"It’s Reese’s for breakfast!" That’s it. That’s all I have written down here.

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.

Bottle: pours a dark mahogany with a small light tan head. Aromas are so nice... Hazelnut fruit and chocolate... The taste hits my tounge perfectly... Strong hazelnut, and sweet chocolate. It sits in your mouth perfect... It goes down way too fast... So good!

Pour at Cincinnati’s First Craft Beer Only Oktoberfest on 10/6/12. Pours brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut and malt. Cocoa and vanilla flavor with hazelnut and coconut notes before a malty finish. I really enjoyed this one.
