12 oz bottle ordered at Joe Bean Coffee Roasters in Rochester, NY.

Pours a hazy and spotty brown, partially clear in places. No head, no lacing.

Smells like hazelnuts, with a bit of chocolate.

Tastes the same, with some buttery malts as well. More hazelnut and less chocolate in the taste than the aroma.

Light, slightly watery mouthfeel. Could be thicker and creamier, really.

A decent flavored nut brown beer, but nothing I want to revisit again, really.

22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big caramel, hazelnut, chocolate, toffee, brown sugar, toast, brown bread, light floral, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of the malt notes with the big hazelnut presence. Taste of big caramel, toast, toffee, chocolate, brown sugar, hazelnut, brown bread, light floral, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; and lingering notes of caramel, chocolate, toast, toffee, brown sugar, hazelnut, and brown bread on the finish for a short bit. Nice balance and complexity of malt flavors with only a moderate amount of hazelnut; not nearly as robust in flavor as I expected from the aromas; and no cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that was good. Alcohol is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very good flavored brown ale. Good balance and complexity of flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering. May have been an old bottle, but there is no way to know for sure.

Enjoyed this in a pub glass. The color was a copper brown with about a tree finger head. What stood out for me was the taste, it had a very clean taste to it. I don't know if it was the water or the way it was brewed but there was no bitterness to it and the aftertaste didn't linger.

I will be having this one again.

Poured from a bottle into a Pint glass, nice medium brown color with a small tan head. Aroma showed a hint of hazelnut and sweetness, the taste was the awesome surprise as a huge blast of true hazelnut comes through and then mellows on the taste bud into a nice full brown ale. Creamy and nutty with mild sweetness for the mouthfeel, overall an awesome brew....I would grab this again anytime!
