The commercial description is perfect. I would include sweet coffee aromas. You think it’s gonna be sweet from the aroma and front end flavors but to my amazement it stays totally dry. This is a very interesting brew. The color is a rich brown with a splash of red creating a slightly tawnied blood hue. Pours a chocolate milk colored froth that hangs around for a while. Overall; a very rich and aromatic brew that is ballanced. The finish is smooth and lingers. Yeggo (38) - USA - APR 7, 2006
OK, first "full" description I’m gonna try. I don’t dislike it as much as the total score suggests, let me start with that. It’s 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. Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2006
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, that’s 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.

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 isn’t 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. ghorsche (48) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAR 27, 2006
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). I’m not tasting any hazelnut. Doesn’t 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. I’d 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 (2014) - 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.
