22oz bottle purchased as a single at The Spirit Haus, Amherst, MA.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" tan head over the slightly cloudy dark reddish brown brew. Frothy head lasts well, and laces well. Aroma is creamy, malty, and a bit nutty. Taste is sweet, husky brown malts with a hazelnut finish. Mouthfeel and drinkability are both good. Enjoyable brew.

Review from notes from Jan 13, courtesy of infi
Dark copper that was opaque. Little to no lacing with little carbonation bubbles. Poured with a 2 finger head that retreated quite quickly. Looked like a tasty brew from my point of view. Smells of hazelnut like in my coffee. Subtle, but definitely there. Something that I took a liking to. Also there were a back hint of brown sugars and malts.
Upon drinking this, it was a blend of Hazelnut, brown sugar, malt and maybe a hint of spice thrown in. The aftertaste had a short stay. This was a very subtle kind of beer for me as I'm used to much more stronger flavors being in your face, but this is something I can really take a liking to. Light bodied and medium cabonation.

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..
