Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a footed tulip.
A: Dark brown. Pours about a 1 finger, bubbly, brown-white head. Settles quickly. Pockets of effervescence apparent throughout the body of the brew. A ring remains throughout. No real lacing.
S: Nutty malt, milk chocolate, caramel.
T: Bitter malt flavor with very faint hints of indistinct sweetness.
M: Light body, earthy character, and a lightly bitter finish.
D: Drink session style, although the bitter finish will slow the pace a bit.
Atmosphere is good enough. Decent appearance including a fair head, but no real lacing. Nose is strong candy sweet notes, well-balanced with a nutty malt character. Bitter, earthy malt with a touch of sweetness. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

I great blend of hazelnut flavor and porter taste. Sometimes porters aren't very proportioned, but this works great. The hazelnut is better than other "hazelnut" beers I've tried. There's a roasted almond, toasted coffee, malty taste. And there's no bad aftertaste.
It pours pretty dark, almost stouty. It doesn't taste nearly as heavy as it looks. Not much of a head.
I got this in my beer of the month pack. I would definitely try it again if I ever see it.

Part of the first shipment of a beer club a business client of mine signed me up for. The smell is of a very rich porter with some excellent hazelnut mixed in. The taste doesn't quite live up to the smell and the carbonation was lacking a bit but nonetheless this was a solid winter session beer.
