Just what the label says..the nose follows the palate, getting chocolate and hazelnut.

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a brownish black with hazelnut highlights and a foamy, light, filmy, light tan head. Aromas of rich hazelnut coffee, bittersweet baker's chocolate, creme highlights, subtle smoke, and roasted overtones. Flavors are bitter and richly sweet forward, with chocolate and coffee forward, tangy hazelnut and caramel, hints of vanilla and campfire, and earthy undertones. The richly sweet and smoky carry through into the aftertaste on a dry and robust body. The finish is dry and smooth, with a decent smoky sweet and slightly bitter linger. Very balanced and tasty beer.

Pours black under a creamy beige head that sticks well to the surface. Aroma is thick with chocolate, toffee, hazelnut and nougat. Sweet nutty, milk chocolaty flavor - as expected. Still has a nice porter quality to it with lingering cocoa and raisin bread. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated, finishing a touch bitter. Plenty flavorful...good for a dessert beer.

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.
