Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is one of a kind! Four different malted barleys combine to create a distinctive, full-bodied beer with a roasted nuttiness, uniquely enhanced by a hint of hazelnuts. Smooth and creamy with the nose of the Willamette hop, this porter is a beer style unto itself.

A-- it pours a cola color with ruby highlights. Thin tan head that fades quickly.

S- hazelnut, and it smells a little buttery. Its not a bad thing, but weird.

T- rich creamy hazelnut, coffee. Not terribly complex.

M- light/medium bodied. Gentle carbonation.

O- a little one dimensional, but it's not bad. I'll buy this again.

Black reddish color with a one finger head with short retention, but with a constant plate and leaving some laces.
What a delicious and unexpected aroma. Hazelnut is quite predominant here, also it has strong notes of biscuit, grains, wood chips and vanilla.
Bold flavor of roasted malts, lots of hazelnuts, spices, herbal and earthy hops, charred wood, chocolate, ashes, yeast and roasted coffee beans. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitter roasted note.
Light body with appropriate carbonation and a creamy sensation.
Definitely a nutty Porter. Bold aroma and flavor with tons of hazelnut that feels natural. This was a nice pleasant surprise which is underrated in my opinion. I was under the impression that they did enhanced the formula, this one has a more similar profile to Rogue John John Hazelnut.
