I do believe that this is a reformulation of the original hazelnut brown ale - and I prefer the latter version more. Same nice brown color. Hazelnut aroma was not as distinctive in the aroma. The flavor seemed a bit more tart and acidic than the original, and the hazelnut was not as noteworthy, almost more of an aromatic than a flavoring. Also, the hazelnut was more of an extract note than the more rich, roasted hazelnut flavors I recall in the original. A good beer, but the Iron Chef has not improved upon it.

Poured from bottle into tulip.
Pours a thick brown molasses. Malty aroma, the hazlenut is present with chocolate notes.
Taste is of bitter malt, nutty, and slight alcohol. This is a great Brown. The hazlenut isnt overpowering, although I was kind of hoping it would be. Its slightly bitter, but it balances well with the malt and nutty combination.
Worth a try for sure.
