look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bomber to a shaker, a ruby brown with burnt orange highlights, 2 fingers of head dropping to a thin but solid coating. Lots of fast bubbles.

Smell is a combination of sweet, toasted hazelnuts with pure, fres honey, like there's been honey drizzled on top. Brings to mind of the Southern Tier dessert beers with how clear & present the smell is. Burgeoning on too sweet, but wow! Some cinnamon. Like a Yankee Candle, my wife adds.

Taste not as impressive, but still admirable -- sweet malt with mild honey taste up front, moderate caramel, then make way for just enough hops to balance.

Medium-bodied, maybe a little on the sugary side but not sticky. A real treat, but one is plenty.

650ml bottle bought online from Beersofeurope...

Poured a bright burgundy red / brown colour. Creamy head with coppery hints poured quite thick and foamy then faded fairly quickly to light patchy covering with thick edging. Barely any carbonation...

Aroma - Tons of rich sweet nuttiness mixed with lots of chocolate and dried cocoa powder, quite earthy, musty traces, brown sugar, toasted malt loaf, burnt / nut brown butter, light butterscotch, faint hints of grassy hops, light cigar smoke traces...

Taste - Pretty much as above - rich sweet nutty chocolate (although not as sweet as the aromas would indicate), definite cocoa powder notes, hazlenut syrup, light metallic traces, faint pepperiness, some smokiness, light grassy hops..

Feel - Sharp initially then smooths out... medium bodied... pretty quaffable...

Overall - A very nice brew that does exactly as it says on the bottle... recommended..

This beer pours a clear, but not hazy deep amber/ruby color with a small amount of off-white head that leaves some lacing on the glass but dissipates pretty quickly.

I can pick up on a nutty but sweet smell with some hints of caramel in the mix. The smell is not intense, but its very balanced and pleasant.

This beer opens up with a maltyness which turns into a sweet, then nutty flavor. Its more of a sweet caramel-ish flavor than nutty. It has a certain crispness to it from the dry finish. Its an interesting flavor, not as nutty as I was expecting but still very good. The carbonation is pretty sharp, but this beer is still very drinkable and easy to put down.
