3.95/5 rDev -0.8%
A - Pours a dark chestnut brown color with a generously sticky, thick head, very viscous when the glass is swirled.
S - Predominantly hazelnut aroma, underneath is bitter dark chocolate and a hint of mocha cream.
T - Similar to the nose but with alcohol presence and light warming on the way down. The hazelnut is toned down (the hefty nose was screaming the same on the palate...not so much). Light hazelnut, mocha/coffee, semi-creamy, nutty, and sweet dark chocolate.
M - Thin medium body to medium body and thin on the finish, dry finish, and coats the mouth with nutty, dark chocolate.
O - Not a fan of brown ales but this is a good one.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Firestone Walker tasting glass.
A: Clear chestnut. Light head. Gorgeous.
S: Oh my goodness, it smells amazing. Rich coffee, hint of nuttiness, but so much coffee. Hint of dry bitterness. (Reminiscent of Wild Heaven Ode To Mercy.)
T/M/O: Rich, sweet, and Frangelico-y. Hazelnut liquer. Strong and chocolatey. The coffee is still present. This is incredible. It may be slightly faded, but still hugely flavorful. The finish is dry and nutty and lingering and reminiscent of almonds and coffee grounds. Hint of watery softness belied by the surprising 9% ABV. Drinkable and pleasant. Highly recommended. I'm really happy to have had an opportunity to sample this.
