Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Dogbrick on 12-16-2002

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.

Pours opaque brown. Overwhelming hazelnut aroma with hints of caramel malt. Less malt on the tongue, representative of an English porter, with a clean finish. Just too much hazelnut!

Bottom line, smells f'in fantastic. Does not live up to expectations though. A little thin on body too.
