22 Oz. bomber. Bought this one fresh, going to have to try this one again some time

A: Pours a clear brown color. Smallish head sans lacing.

S: I like to go fishing. I've spent many many years doing it. This beer smells like Lake Wilhelm. The (I'll officially name it here) Wilhelm smell tends to overwhelm everything else. Faint nutty smells. No hoppy aroma to speak of. WTF went wrong here?

T: Nice malty flavors. Hints of the hazelnut come late in the tasting.

M: Medium body and carbonation. Alcohol feels about right for the stated ABV%.

D&N: Nothing special here. I'll give this beer another go in a few months. The Wilhelm smell is just creeping me out. Shame to say, but the rest of the bottle in the fridge has a date with the sink.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

An excellent beer that got better once warmed up and it's full flavour was shown.

Aroma: chocolate (similar as in an amber ale) with hazelnut

Taste: Chocolate, hazelnut, spice, with some slight melon and a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste

Alcohol content is masked fairly well and appearance is excellent

Overall - A brilliant beer full of chocolate/hazelnut goodness - pure deliciousness!

3.01/5  rDev -26%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a nice brown with a thick head. I for the life of me can't detect any hazelnut smell at all. Although the taste is good for a brown ale I can't detect any hazelnut taste or flavor at all. Although it's highly rated here I'm not sure why. The big letdown for me is the lack of any hazelnut.
