Pours a dark chestnut brown, with a thick off-white head with a decent amount of staying power. Good lacing.

The hazelnut smell is certainly present, as is chocolate. Coffee too. Smells like baking! Very sweet. Quite nice.

The roasted hazelnut is present in the taste as well, as well as a slight bitterness. Taste is nice, but not particularly complex. Perhaps a bit of caramel. Good, but not as exciting as the nose, for me.

Body is the weakest part of the beer. Thinner than I would like, and I do think that this detracts from the flavour. In its scent, it actually bears some similarities to a stout, and I think that a similar thickness would be quite welcome. Too watery. Minimal carbonation.

Overall, a good beer. Would be greatly improved with a bigger body. Still, definitely a nice one.

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.
