12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A: Pours a dark chestnut color. The head is a one finger light mocha shade featuring a good texture, but not much retention.

S: Strongly nutty - not just in terms of hazelnut, but other variants like almonds, walnuts, and pecans come through. Aromatically, it's pretty much just peanut butter-esque with not much else to give any other depth. But that one note? It's extremely inviting and enjoyable.

T: Much sweeter than the aroma, and veering dangerously to artificial in terms of how it comes off. The flavor profile is hazelnut...and that's about it. Decidedly one note, and that solitary note has flaws to it. I don't hate it by any stretch, though.

M: The general texture is kind of thin and even insubstantial. Despite that, there's a lot of coarse finishing astringency that comes off slightly clashing with the sweetness and limp body. Hell, it even manages to be both watery AND sugary in its finish. Only thing it does right here is ease of drinkability.

O: Not particularly likable aside from the aroma; I'm glad I only bought a single of these and wouldn't buy it again. Having said that, it's a good choice for hazelnut lovers - because let's face it, the flavor is nothing BUT that. If this and Frangelic Mountain Brown have taught me anything, it's that hazelnut beers give off great aromatic qualities...and not so great flavor profiles.

Heard great things about this beer so decided to give it a shot. Here goes:

A: OK, not good or bad. Beer pours an opaque brown; no light gets through. Very little head and moderate lacing.

S: Wow, simply outstanding. Can detect nutmeg, nutella, hazelnut, peanut butter and chocolate. Very little hops, however; this is a pure malt brew.

T: Taste follows the nose. Again, it's outstanding. Lots of nutella, hazelnut, peanut butter, chocolate, etc. The beer is a pure malt brew; I can't really detect any hops.

M: Very good but nothing special. Somewhat creamy but not very much so.

O: An excellent brown ale. Lots of nuts and chocolate. Would highly recommend it.
