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

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a mug

A: Pours a brownish mahogany color with a 2 finger, off white head.

S: Smell is very strongly of hazelnuts. Also caramel, with some bits of toffee and brown sugar
coming through. The smell of this beer is phenomenal.

T: This beer has a nutty taste to it that consists of roasted malts, hazelnuts, and toffee flavors.
The hazelnut isn't nearly as strong as it is on the nose, but it is definitely present upon
taking a large sip. As the beer warms no new flavors are perceived.

M: The mouthfeel of this beer was pretty light. Thin, almost watery in a way. There was
a decent amount of carbonation which helped to liven the beer somewhat, but to be honest I was
a bit disappointed in the mouthfeel.

O: Overall this beer wasn't bad, but it also wasn't anything too special. The smell was unbelievable, the taste was ok, but then I was let down by the mouthfeel. Maybe I'm used to drinking beers that are a bit more full bodied, or maybe I'm just not a huge fan of this beer; I don't know. I would drink it again, I just wouldn't be in any hurry to do so.

Purchased bomber from Shoppette on Kadena, Okinawa, Japan.

P - The beer is poured furiously which creates two fingers of head that wilt into nothing leaving the beer completely unprotected from my mouth.
S - Brown sugar and mild amber malts off the nose.
T - Taste is slightly sweet, again brown sugar, then a hint of bitter bark. The hazelnut nectar addition does lend influence to both the nose and the palate and is noticeable throughout the beer.
B - Medium bodied, mild small bubble carbonation and a lingering hazelnut like after taste.

Overall a nice ABA, fits the style in a delicious manner. I could see this in a pitcher for my friends while bowling or playing pool. Very easy to drink, quaffable and mild.

An imperial Xmas version of this would be rocking. Some spices and higher abv... Rogue are you listening?
