A- Deep brown, slightly reddish in highlights. Manila folder head on the beer is thick and creamy in texture. Just the slightest bit of lacing.
S- Well the hazelnut is definitely there, just a bit of a milk chocolate presence on the nose as well.
T- Good malt presence, slight roasted character, with milk chocolate being there. Hazelnut shows up strong, mostly in the finish. There is a slight mineral quality to it as well that I'm not particularly fond of, but this was really the only negative.
M- Nice rich smooth body to it. I would have liked to see just a bit more carbonation out of it, especially since it's a bomber, that by the end of the bottle it felt flat.
O- A good brown, with the hazelnut well added. Good to see a flavor addition contribute positively to the beer. A lot of people criticize PacMan yeast on these forums but I think it worked well here. Tasty throughout.
