Poured into a tulip.

A: Dark brown with a finger and a half of off-white head. No lacing.

S: Super nutty, hazel, slightly sweet malt, slight coffee aroma. The nuts dominate the smell.

T: Huge on nutty tones with a great kick of hazelnut. Malts definitely present, but not overly sweet. Low bitterness.

M: Not overly carbonated. Leaves a nice nutty, hazelnut coffee aftertaste.

O: I've only had a couple of straight brown ales, but this is the best yet. I'm happy that it's not overly sweet like some browns. Good stuff.

Poured from the bottle into my Chimay goblet.

Appearance: The beer pours a murky reddish brown with a light tan head that goes away completely.

Smell: Definitely picking up the nuts. Malty but not particularly sweet. I'm getting the hazelnuts and some vanilla notes.

Taste: The hazelnuts are quite pronounced here too. A very mild malt sweetness, the sweet taste is mild, not the malt. The finish is slightly bitter and nutty.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a slightly slick finish.

Overall: I'm a big fan of this beer. The hazelnuts are a very welcome addition to the mix. I'd have another.

A- Crystal clear mahogany with a rich looking mocha colored head. Nice retention with some lacing.

S- Mild toasted malt with just a hint of hops. The hazelnut is barely there.

T- I was expecting something on the sweet side but this is mild and nutty with some hops in the middle and then that elusive hazelnut essence.

M- Medium light body with subtle carbonation.

O- This is a pleasant beer to savor. Not very complex but an interesting and well made example of the style.
