Wow, let me repeat that, wow. I have just found the same experience that I had when I first bit into a piece of toast with Nutella on it. For a fan of the hazelnut, this is the equivalent of a finding dark brown gold in a little 12 oz bottle. If you like a beer with a distinguished nut taste, look no further. You will not find a better beer. Did I mention this beer is good.

There IS a God!

Appearance: When I first cracked the bottle open, suds spewed everywhere as if I had popped champagne. Not a great first impression, but I quickly forgave it. I poured it in a glass and got a nice and creamy tan head, and a beer with a deep brown color. Nice.

Smell: Heavy malts, caramel, and obviously, hazelnut. There's no hop presence in the smell or taste with this one, I can say that right now. That's to be expected though.

Taste/feel: It's just what you'd expect from a quality hazelnut flavored beer. It has a nice, deep, rich hazelnut and malt flavor. The aftertaste consists of coffee and maybe even some chocolate in the background. Pretty complex, and pretty damn delicious as well. The feel suits the beer well -- medium carbonation and feel, making this an easy drinking beer.

My taste buds liked Hazelnut Brown from Sam Adams, so I decided to try this one out, and I couldn't be happier with that choice ... suddenly one of my favorite beers. I don't think I could drink more than one pint in a session, but good lord this is fantastic for "desserty beer" fans.

Pours smooth dark brown with a small beige head.

Big malty nose, mild sweetness, woody and nutty, plenty of hazelnut

Similar to nose with big maltiness, roasted hazelnuts, buttery.

This is jam packed with hazelnut. Good change of pace in the world of brown ales.

Bought a bottle of this from M & R Liquors in Manchester, CT. Poured into a Baird pint glass. Mysterious cloudy brown hue. A playful hazelnut and maple syrup nose hints at the powerful hazelnut and hop flavor in the brew. Silky smooth caramel aftertaste with a bit of bitter toffee as well. This is an amazing fall/winter brew that matches with the changing leaves outside, making me reminisce on the whole experience. As far as brown ales go, this is one of the best i've ever had, not being overly hazelnut-driven and definitely sticking to its category. Definitely a recommendation!

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Amber/brown in color, with a rather short head of tan foam.
Aroma-Hazelnut, faint chocolate
Taste-Chocolate milk, hazelnut, light coffee. A bit thin-bodied but nice overall flavor.
Sessionable. Not overdone, subtle and tasty. A nice match for an aged hunk of Gouda.
