The World Wide Web claims Turkey exports the majority of the world’s hazelnut. Well if that’s true, we need a direct export agreement because this beer is chock full of hazelnutty richness. Toasty, malty and perfectly sweet, it’s as smooth as a baby’s backside.

On tap at Union Hotel, Newtown. pours a dark black with a off cream head. Very dark for a brown ale. Aroma: hazelnut, nuts, cocoa, mild syrup notes. Taste: hazelnut, brown sugar, cocoa, syrup flavours. Mild Nutella flavour. Mildly sweet. Sweetness lingers on the palate. Quite tasty.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2017 Pours a dark brown with little to no head from the bottle. Enticing aroma of chocolate, hazelnut and malt. Wonderfully creamy mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Minimum bitterness with chocolate, burnt toffee and sweet hazelnut flavours. A stand out beer that I would seek out to share with friends.

330mL bottle, $5.50, no date. Appearance: Dark brown and red. Tan head which doesn't last with drinking. 3 Aroma: Nutella (hazelnut, chocolate), sweetness, wafer. Very potent and delicious. Love it. 10 Taste: Nutty, Nutella, dark crystal malt. Medium sharp bitterness, not very sweet when chilled (unfortunately), nice low sweetness when warm. Moderate length. Caramel malt finish. Taste is not as great as the aroma. 7 Palate: Medium carbonation, average body. 3 Overall: Fun with the aroma as the highlight. A sweeter flavour would have been better. 15

On tap at brewery. Brown with thin tan head and malty aroma mixed with hazelnut. Smooth tasting with a nutty finish. Many hazelnut beers tend to build up on the palate but this one is a bit more restrained and enjoyable.

Tap at the Napier Hotel, Melbourne. Poured a clear dark brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is sweet caramel malt, nutty hazelnut, light smoky roast. The flavour is moderate sweet with a smooth rich smoky liquorice hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

On tap at Hopscotch, Southbank, Melbourne. Hazy deep brown, lasting off-white head. Malt driven nose with roasty notes, dark chocolate, nuts and an appealing earthiness. Taste is restrained sweet malts with a bitter chocolatey finish. Lovely smooth easy drinking palate with softish carbonation. Enjoyed this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear dark brown. Aroma of chocolate, coffee malts and a hint of hazelnuts. Taste is much more nut driven, can also taste the frangelico sweetness. Goes down very, very smooth. Good signature beer for this brewery.

From a bottle. Mild nutty aroma and flavour with a thin body, a little like cola, not my favourite style but a well made beer.

Davros (3362) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 2, 2016
Pours dark brown with a small head. Nose shows sweet toasty/bready malt and some very soft nutty notes. Flavours include sweet hazelnut, bready malt and cocoa.
