2012 Vintage

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.

2012

a - poured a one finger thick creamy tan head into a snifter. the body was dark brown like molasses. this should be good...
s - big hazelnut aromas hit you immediately. there is a hint of chocolate and coffee as well.
t - nutty and chocolatey with a toasty finish.
m - creamy and coating.
o - this one did not disappoint at all. just so sweet and delicious. incredibly drinkable and pleasant. i'm glad i have one more left.
