ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Reviewed 2/20/13. 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a one finger light mocha shade featuring a good texture, but not much retention. S: Strongly nutty - not just in terms of hazelnut, but other variants like almonds, walnuts, and pecans come through. Aromatically, its pretty much just peanut butter-esque with not much else to give any other depth. But that one note? Its extremely inviting and enjoyable. T: Much sweeter than the aroma, and veering dangerously to artificial in terms of how it comes off. The flavor profile is hazelnut...and thats about it. Decidedly one note, and that solitary note has flaws to it. I dont hate it by any stretch, though. M: The general texture is kind of thin and even insubstantial. Despite that, theres a lot of coarse finishing astringency that comes off slightly clashing with the sweetness and limp body. Hell, it even manages to be both watery AND sugary in its finish. Only thing it does right here is ease of drinkability. O: Not particularly likable aside from the aroma; Im glad I only bought a single of these and wouldnt buy it again. Having said that, its a good choice for hazelnut lovers - because lets face it, the flavor is nothing BUT that. If this and Frangelic Mountain Brown have taught me anything, its that hazelnut beers give off great aromatic qualities...and not so great flavor profiles.

Pours deep dark brown with an off white head. Big hazel nut aroma. Hazel nut up front with background flavours of coffee and chocolate. It has a smooth body and is easy to drink. Great beer from the taste to the art on the bottle, but i dont understand the cow and pig symbol on the label, I thought it was going to contain meat.

beer-yum (1414) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 3, 2016
Big nutty aroma in a reddish brown black pour. Nutty start with a malty caramel body and a crisp clean finish leaves one wanting another. A very tasty variation on the style done as you would expect.

Gluepot (497) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2016
A brilliant looking brown, with a full light tan head and a deep toffee coloured body. Hazelnuts front and centre in the taste profile. Toffee, butter, plums, cereal, biscuit malt and coconut add fresh additional elements. A really nice blend with a strong nut lead, which I love in a Brown Ale.

Taste: Nice complex nutty, creamy sweet, hazelnut notes. Smooth nutty aroma. Mahogany, mostly clear, with nice lace to the head. Medium body. Some hops, and agave nectar sweetness for balance.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber with off white head. Aroma is sweet toffee nutty. Taste is sweet hazelnut honey like with a malty hazelnut finish. Too sweet for my tastes.

Right off the bat you get the smell of hazelnuts, backed with some slight caramel and chocolate notes. The slight bit of foam dissipated within seconds, and what was left was a dark amber beer, with a hazy reddish-tint. Because of the carbonation the first bite is bitter, but then the subtle taste of hazelnut come through, and with a little chocolate/toffee as I let the beer warm. The body was medium, and in some mouthfuls it did feel slightly thick. Overall a good brown ale, with some nice hazelnut notes; however their was not so much complexity.

Pours amber with minimum off-white top, which diminishes quickly. Aroma is very weak, some hazelnut in there some maltiness and honey notes at the back. Beer is very well balanced, some aggressive carbonation upfront quickly gives way to a more subtle malty and full taste. A nice fresh finish makes the beer an excellent amber!
