Orgasmic!! That's the best way to describe this beer. I was at the brewery the other day and couldn't believe what I was tasting. If I had lived around I would have bought two kegs of it, or would have stolen them if they did not sell them to me. It's one of the best beers I've ever tasted with a perfect balance of roastiness, chocolate, and a hazelnut finish that makes everything glow and make you think you're in heaven. Can you see I did LOVE this beer? Get a plane to Fairfield, CA and try it. Or better yet, Jamil, ship it to WA!!

Pours black with a fading tan head.
Nose shows chocolate and hazelnut, mainly hazelnut. Pretty much ferrero rocher in a glass. Awesome. Some bready malt too.
Flavours include more of the same, but with more of a bitter cocoa note and a fair bit of roasted malt.
Body could be a bit richer/creamier.

Appearance - Pours near black with cola brown edging where light can penetrate. The head puffs up to a rocky 3 fingers in width and shows great retention before settling to a thin, broken layer of surface suds. Lacing is small and spotty with fair stick.

Smell - The aroma is amazing! Notes of roasted peanut and hazelnut with milk chocolate and traces of caramel.

Taste - Follows the nose, though less cohesive. Fair notes of roasted peanut and hazelnut, while a lightly supportive milk chocolate character rides beneath. Touches of earth. Kinda light; takes a big gulp to get the full flavor, which is amazing when done.

Mouthfeel - Closer to light than medium in body with soft carbonation. A little too soft; could use just a hair more carbonation. Really smooth, though.

Overall - It's delicious, but doesn't quite have the potency in flavor to reach that World Class status. When gulped it felt like I was drinking one of the best porters I've ever had, but when drank within normal "sipping ranges" (whatever that means) it was good to decent. So... I don't know. This one's got me a tad perplexed. Definitely one to try again.

22oz bottle courtesy of drunkensloth, thanks a lot buddy. Dark black color, huge off-white head, looks quite nice. Aroma is strong hazelnuts, almost like nutella. Very nice aroma. Flavor is more hazelnut and only the slightest touch of chocolate. I would like to see the chocolate play a bigger part but the hazelnut aspect was very well done. This was a pretty good beer.
