3.3/5 rDev -14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A - Pours a clear chestnut brown with a khaki 2-finger head that is thick and sticky. Retains quite well for about 2-3 minutes
S - Nutty malt aroma and a slight wiff of hops in the end. Somewhat sweet with a cooked brown sugar smell.
T&M - Sweet malts right up front followed by that nutty taste to keep it from being cloying. Slight hop bitterness on the back of the tongue but definitely not a hoppy brew - true to style I feel. A bit too much carbonation for my liking in this style. Overall flavor is just a bit thin. I'm looking for some more body and thickness with bolder, more complex flavors.
D - It's easily drinkable with no offensive flavors but it just falls short in the flavor department. A bit watery overall which was really unexpected.

Sampled tonight on 6/26/14. Found this bottle in the back of the cooler so it is a good year old I am guess BUT there isn't a expiration date anyone on the bottle and this brew is now RETIRED and no longer brewed. But opened it and it was fine. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a 14 ounce glass 'Texas style " boot.
Pours a clear dark brown in color with a good 3-finger off-white head! Good carbonation with some sediment left in the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is of roasted malts, hazel nut and brown sugar. Very nice! The taste is close to the aroma but not as strong BUT pretty good overall with all the flavors mentioned above coming through lots of the hazelnut 'nut' flavor in the mix. A slight dry smoke finish but still good.
