Pours a finger and half of tan head on a black body.
The aroma has lots of hazelnut and chocolate right up front.
The taste starts with mild chocolate bitterness, then roasted malt sweet and carries through to a tapered sweet ending.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
Excellent balance for a decadent beer.

Pours a beautiful black color with a one finger head lacking retention. Chocolate and hazelnut are present and notable in the aroma along side alcohol. A Nutty flavor up front provides a lingering bitterness to compliment chocolate.

Overall this is a drinkable brew but there isn't much too it. It lacks in complexity and dimension.

An earthy porter with lots of hazelnut flavor and notes of milk chocolate that can truly be appreciated with a proper swig.

Enjoyed from a wine glass.

a - brew pours a deep black with a finger plus of foamy off tan colored head.

s - nose is chocolate chat and nuts. Some crisp fizzy vanilla.

t/m/o - comes to life on the first sip. Really nice chocolate, milk chocolate with some porter char. The hazelnut is a great compliment. A bit fizzy buy mire along the meatier side if the spectrum. Very nice, great crossover porter for the stout fans.

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.
