Brown pour with a tan head. Nutty and caramel aroma. Very balanced, much less sweet than I expected (and thats a good thing). Flavors of malt, hazelnut, caramel. Finishes with coffee/chocolate.

650 mL bottle served in a shaker- cant believe I havent had this one... poured a darkened brown color with maroon tint when held to a light source, razor thin white ring about the vessel for a head with very minimal lacing, aroma of caramel, various nuts, and a touch of honey. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, malt is in place as expected, middle has some sweetness and heft to it, finish has an oddly drying but pleasurable experience. A bit all over the map, but good.

UXO (1686) - CANADA - FEB 18, 2017
Appearance: clear amber-brown with one fat finger of dense beige head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: hazelnut, peanut, caramel. (8/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body tending lightly watery, moderate carbonation, slightly sticky medium duration finish. (3/5) Having just recently tried their Hazelutely Choctabulous, I thought Id go back and re-review its 60% component, since the last time I tried it was more than three years ago, when frankly I didnt have the first clue what I was doing. And, not surprisingly, my score from back then was excessively high. Upon sober re-review, I conclude that this is slightly one-dimensional (all nut, all the time), slightly too sweet, and prone to a slight tendency to thinness in the finish. I can see how the addition of the Chocolate Stout (which I will be trying next) remediates those issues to make the Hazelutely Choctabulous as enjoyable as it is. (14/20)

anstei (1687) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 14, 2017
Bottle. Pours cloudy brown with a light beige foam. Aroma is hazelnut, strong toasted malts, caramel, chocolate. Light body, a bit thin but never losing its game, still kicking on that light nutty sweetness. Soft carbonation to drag it all down into a bitter-sweet caramel palate. Could be a tad drier, but otherwise a really nice late night downer.

Murrow (97) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle. Pours amber brown. Thin head, quickly dissipates. Aroma is sweet and light. Flavor opens very mild and thin, developing sweet hazelnut notes mixed with some toasted malt. Thin mouthfeel. Simple and very drinkable.

bunget (896) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle. Clear dark amber body, small beige head with average retention. Aroma of buckwheat honey, toffee, hazelnut waffles and vanilla beans. Taste of roasted hazelnuts, caramel, cookie dough, hints of herbs and roasted malt. Considering the style, this is very flavorful.
