Had on tap at The Hideout. Nitro-pour and CO2 versions available.

A-Average for a stout. Nothing really sticks out. Nice little creamy head on top. Comparable to a Guinness...or any other nitro stout for that matter.

S-You get little muted hints of the hazelnut. The again, I've never really known nitrogen beers to impart very strong flavors....maybe due to the lack of effervescence?

T-This is definitely Hideout's marquee product as it's available in multiple bars in the GR area. It's got quite a bit of robust hazelnut flavor to it that feels a tad artificial. Reminds me a bit of Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown. A bit of oatmeal as well.

M-Creamy. Much like any other nitro beer. Little viscous at points.

O-Decent offering but nothing that will knock your pants off.


Serving type: nitro-tap

I don't like to be the hater here, but this beer didn't do it for me. I like stout. And I love hazelnut. I would snort Nutella if I could. But I really couldn't pick up on much hazelnut until this beer had warmed substantially. And at any temperature, the initial notes were bum rushed by an overwhelming bitterness and slightly oxidized taste which stuck around far too long in aftertaste. I also found the beer to be too thin and insubstantial for a stout. It wouldn't take much to turn this into a pretty good beer, but in current incarnation, not recommended. Sorry!

Serving type: on-tap
