This beer pours a maple syrup brown with a lovely thick almost three finger head. It is pretty crytal clear, and the head lasts a while then lays down into a thick layer of film.
This beer smells very dry roasty and nutty. As dry as the Filberts inside of it.
Upon tasting it took a few sips for the Hazelnuts to open up. They aren't very bold but their presence gives this dry brown ale a very refined nutty sweetness. The beer itself is caramely, nutty and dry with a faint hint of hops in the finish.
The feel is very smooth with a medium carbonation and a fairly thin body which makes it too easy to drink.
One of my first brown ales and one that I still visit quite often.

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.
