OK, first "full" description Im gonna try. I dont dislike it as much as the total score suggests, let me start with that. Its AWFULLY flat, first of all, with a bit of coffee scent. Texture is thin, almost watery. Just an odd flavor to me, probably just not my cup of tea, but I guess my expectation was something a bit thicker than what I got.

Nice mahogany colored brown ale from a 22 oz bottle. Rich complex aroma included hazelnut, coffee and a blend of other aromas that I can only desribe as "sweet". Sweet malty taste with a definite hazelnut quality. Very subtle hops influence. A little flat and watery, but pleasant overall.

Pours a deep, opaque brown from the 22 oz. bottle. Antique white colored head and lacing are awfully thin. Hazelnut aroma is present, but not overwhelming. Hazelnut flavor is pronounced with nice malty finish. Almost no hoppiness to it. For me, thats a plus. On the weak side palate-wise, but somewhat crisp.

letters (5) - Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2006 does not count
a favorite, pours with a thin ephemberal head, with a subtle aroma that reveals little of its sweet, enchanting taste. With elements of hazlenut, mocha, honey. Has an amber appearance, and is thin and delicate within the mouth.

IrishBoy (4141) - Bakersfield, California, USA - APR 2, 2006
Ebony brown with a thin tan head. Aroma has a little malt, a little hazelnut, and a hint of mocha. Flavor is malty with a background of hazelnut, and a hoppy bitter finish.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2006
A dark red color with no head. The aroma is crisp and reminds me of a fresh (not skunked) Newcastle, but there isnt a lot there. The flavor on the otherhand is very strong with the hazlenut. A pleasant suprise. Very smooth and not very heavy. Wonderful with my pizza.

22oz bottle. Poured dark brown, almost still, into a British pint glass with a large, mostly-diminishing foamy tan head. Very nice, dense lacing. Could use a few bubbles to liven up the appearance but otherwise beautiful. Aroma is absolutely gorgeous: honey, hazelnut, toast, some coffee, butter note, background of raisins. Sweet. A feast for the nose! The flavor is comparatively indistinct.. I get coffee and a lot of toast with some assertive hop bitterness and muddled other flavors. Light alcohol (not unpleasant). Im not tasting any hazelnut. Doesnt feel like much in the mouth, thin and watery with no carbonation to speak of.. could definitely use more body, but quite drinkable at least. Id get this again just for the nose, though!

apkerga (11) - Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Moderately malty with definate toasty/nutty notes as well as coffee in the aroma. Body poured a deep brown with a strong, lasting head that had medium longevity. Very good flavor for the style . Medium light mouth feel.

frankenkitty (2007) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2006
A fizzy yet fluffy ecru head forms and dissipates over a rich, ruby/mahogany body. Nuttiness abounds in the aroma with butterscotch and soapy florals. Prominent, flavorful nuttiness and roasted flavor with praline/pecan dominating. Hop bitterness is present yet gentle, not coming off as "rancid" as I have detected in other nut browns. Mildly syrupy body with an efferevescent tingle to enliven the flavors. Although on the lighter side, this is a nice "dessert" beer.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Bomber. Clear, medium brown with a small ring of a tan head. Nose is sweet malt, some light mocha notes, and, of couse nuts. I actually cracked 2 hazelnuts just to verify the flavors (not something I remembered well.) Flavor is also sweetly malty, more nuts and brown sugar flavors. Light mocha and milk chocolate notes. Mouth is slightly creamy. Lightly bitter finish. Excellent body! Insanely drinkable, and has been added to my "regular drinker" stable.
