Had on tap in a pint glass.
Poured a slightly hazy reddish brown with barely any head. This I attribute to it being served in an extremely cold glass.
Nuts immediately on the nose along with some milk chocolate and toast. Honestly it smells almost exactly like Nutella.
Flavor carries over more of the milk chocolate and nuts along with some biscuit and toast. Maybe some caramel and toffee thrown in there too. Bitterness is moderate and the finish is clean. Really not too sweet at all.
Overall, an extremely enjoyable beer and one that would be great with dessert. It's great that it is not too sweet with the presence of the chocolate and hazelnut. One I need to have more often.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottle was poured into a shaker glass at Parish Cafe on Boylston.
Appearance: This beer poured a one finger whitish brown head that reduced to a thin layer. It is an amber brown color with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Toasted malts, roasted, hazelnut, a little chocolate, and some sweetness.
Taste: Hazelnut, toasted, chocolate, some sweetness, mild bitterness, and earthy notes..
Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, light to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, and slight bitterness.
Overall: Awesome brown ale. Will be enjoying this one again in the near future.
