4.08/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

I drank this brew at the brewery on the second level while playing shuffle board.

A: Very dark like thick coffee and when held up to the light it was still black. The thin head was like foamy chocolate milk in color

S: I had two pints of this... I did not pick up the hazlenut on my first glass but when I switched beer and came back to this one I could notice it right away.

Taste.- Lots of coffee flavors with a slight roasted barely finish. I

M: Not as thick as I expected.

D: Good brew. Reminded me alot of a breakfast stout.

Serving type: on-tap

3.43/5  rDev -14.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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
