First, let me say this is the beer that got me into craft brew, so it'll always have a special place in my heart and in my fridge

A: Typical brown ale, slightly hazy. About a finger head that dissipates quickly

S: Very rich with hazelnut with a sweetness I would compare to those butter toffee peanuts.

T: Fairly sweet and roasty, the hazelnut really hits you on the finish.

M: This beers biggest weakness. A little thin considering the dark sweet flavors this beer packs. Other than that, it's smooth, medium carbonation

This beer was my first favorite and is still a go-to for me. Perfect when you want a robust, rich brown ale that's not too complex.

I was served from a 22 ounce capped bottle into a pint glass.

A: A moderately aggressive pour produced a clear mahogany body with a tan two finger head composed of medium dense and sticky bubbles. The head was slow to fall and left a lingering cover that supported a dense curtain of lace.

S: It had distinct aromas of brown sugar, caramel and yeasty dark bread.

T: It began with the flavor of sweet medium roasted malts that generated the taste of dark brown sugar, dark fruits (plums and figs), and caramel. There was a very recessed clean and unimposing hop bite that produced light white spices (e.g., pepper). I missed the hazelnut flavor but believe the brewer reached for it but just missed the mark.

M: It was light to medium bodied with a creamy presence and balanced carbonation. There was a subtle sweet aftertaste.

D: The low ABV did not appeal to me. A bit higher ABV could have left the palate cleaner after each swig and given this beer a bit more of a warm presence. As such it is a very fine brown ale. I will definitely be back to have more...and more...and more.

Clear, deep dark mahogany in color, forming a clumpy small beautifully tan head atop medium-sized bubbles. Carbonation is moderate. Aroma is of sweet chocolate malt and roasted dark nuts. I'm not normally a fan of nut brown ales, but this one smells nice. Retention is decent and lacing is great. Mouthfeel is soft with a smooth finish. Medium-dense body. Taste...wow....up front there are dirty, earthy hops which are followed by a subtle quick note of alcohol. The best part about this brew is right in the middle; a sweet, chewy dark graininess emerges and bathes the tongue, followed by a pleasant spicy hop bitterness. The finish is toasty and dark, earthy and dry, with notes of dark fruits and warm wood. The hazelnut is rather restrained, making this an enjoyable brew, and not sickingly artificial like many other "flavored" mistakes.

Ingredients: Great Western 2-row Pale, Munich, Hugh Baird Brown, Crystal 80, Crystal 135, Carastan, Beeston Pale Chocolate malts; hazelnut extract, Perle and Saaz hops.

Measurements: 14 degrees Plato, IBU 33, apparent attenuation 73.6, Lovibond 36.

Appearance is a light brown color with a beige head.
Initial hazelnut in the nose with a light brewing spice throughout the aroma.
Starts off malty through the majority of the flavor with a spiced ending.
Solid hazel aftertaste, with malt, very short
Very easy drinker, maybe a little heavy for warm weather
