Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a nice chestnut brown color with a big foamy head that sticks to the glass as it recedes. Just a little bit of haze to the body of they with some red hues coming through. The aroma is unreal on this brown ale. Big time hazelnut aroma like fresh toasted hazelnuts. A bit of honey and brown sugar on the nose also. Pretty much the best smelling beer ever. The flavor drops off for me a bit as it's extremely dry and get a hint of astringent flavors. Really nutty and malty with very little hops. Also a bit thin for me. Nice lingering sweet flavors of roasted hazelnuts but the carbonation is a bit high for me and this really would be better if it was creamier or had nitro. Drinkability is good and this beer is delicious. Worth the 4.99 a bomber and would really open up with some roasted pork or a steak sandwich.
