Either draft or bottle (my notes suck). Dark pour with splotchy lacing. Light roast, some fruity/nuttiness; cough syrupy sweet. Really unappealing to me. nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 9, 2016
12oz bottle pours a clear, caramel amber with some creamy, beige head. Nose is very nice, nuts, chocolate, brown sugar, caramel, hints of booze, a little chestnut honey, a little candlewax. Flavor is sweet with honey and brown sugar, marzipan, more rootbeer here than chocolate. Finishes sweet. As this warmed, I liked it less, the alcohol became MUCH more evident. jhp40219 (449) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAR 26, 2016
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with a creamy tan head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Lots of hazelnut in the aroma making it smell candy-like. Freakin’ mouth watering! Taste is hazelnut, chocolate, toasted malts, and caramel with a noticeable alcohol burn on the back end. Medium bodied, slick and slightly creamy texture, moderate carbonation, long finish of hazelnut, chocolate and malts. This is a damn good beer, executed perfectly by Triple Digit! Nothing overwhelms and everything blends together perfectly. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Thanks Drew (will_win_irwin on untapped).
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a dark brown color with a thin wisp of a white foamy head that dissipated lightly. Adequate messy lacing slides into the beer.
The smell takes in the hazelnut really nicely. Delicate chocolate leads in underneath. Subtle coffee.
The taste was mainly hazelnut sweet with a delicate bitter from the nuts. Slides into the aftertaste. Dry nutty finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body with a good sipping quality about it. Carbonation feels good.
Overall, as an imperial brown ale, this works. I’d have again. Felsenbrau (53) - Middletown, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2016
Bottle. Strong pleasant hazelnut and vanilla aroma. Pours medium bright copper, small persistent creamy head, persistent lacing. Starts quite sweet with chocolate, hazelnut, bourbon, perhaps a bit of pumpkin. Very full-bodied, smooth and creamy, lots of weight. Finishes smooth and sweet, lingering bourbon alcohol feel. One of my favorite American beers.

Bottle at RBWG. It pours a dark brown color with a brown head. The aroma has big notes of cocoa, vanilla and alcohol. Pretty hot actually, but it’s tempered by some nice notes of fruitcake, dates and plum. Finishes rich and warming. I liked this one. mR_fr0g (12128) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
