Pours clear dark brown, red can be seen when held up to light. Agressive pours yields a small head which recedes almost instantly. Carbonation is quite noticable.
Smells of sweet alcohol, caramel/toffee candy, with a hint of nut. Might be some hops in there too, but not overly noticable. Pleasing.
Taste is noticable toffee to start, then some noble hop flavour. Hazelnut and dry chocolate show up in the finish. Hazelnut becomes much more distinct as it warms.
Mouthfeel is thick enough to provide a lingering sweetness which works with the style.
Drinkability is slightly above average. While this beer is not "overly" sweet, it is still balanced towards malt, but it is a simple malt.
A pleasing brown ale, but nothing exciting either. I guess I was expecting something a little different, and I thought the hazelnut extract would be more pronounced.

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.
