TheShepherds (54) - chapel hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2013
We didnt like this at all. Very nice nut flavor but quickly overwhelmed by this sweet, acidic yuck taste. One of our least favorite beers! Use caution before buying! You have been warned!

Alpha10 (680) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2017
2017/01/19 - Pours a hazy medium brown/amber colour with a thin, creamy, khaki coloured head that quickly dissipates and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is strong hazelnut, hints of dry dark fruit, roasted malt, butterscotch, cocoa, biscuit and light vanilla. Taste is more hazelnut, biscuit, light cocoa, toffee and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is medium, with lightly biting carbonation and a lightly sweet, dusty, drying finish. Highly drinkable. Hazelnut takes center stage without being overbearing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Klimaet (2234) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2017
Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Pours a dark reddish brown with a small offwhite/light brown head. Aroma has a huge hazelnut sweetness and toastiness in the front, cocoa, vanilla, milk chocolate. Taste has a lot of hazelnut aswell, light bitter notes, coffee, milk chocolate, dry cocoa, caramel. This is a brown ale I can slam!

hauxe (518) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2017
Pours brown from the bottle and leaves a thick frothy head that soon subsides to a thin, creamy layer. A sticky lacing clings to the glass. The aroma is all hazelnut and chocolate. Reminded me sof Nutella. Taste is lightly sweet, nutty, with a chocolate undertones. The finish is bittersweet and nutty, but takes a light sour twist. Overall quite good, although the taste did not quite live up to the aroma.

Rei00 (95) - CHILE - JAN 12, 2017
Una Brown Ale de color marrón, turbio de baja carbonatacion y espuma color mocha. Su aroma privilegia los frutos secos, destacándose las almendras, chocolate con leche y el café. Su sabor es a café con notas de almendras y chocolate con leche, con un final amargo insípido. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Helsdon (363) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2017
Good malty carmel nose, hazelnut in the nose. Solid smooth caramel malt with a good toasty taste, obvious hazelnut flavour. Feels a little, slapped on, but not bad overall.
