4.94/5 rDev +19%
I am new to beer drinking and still working on my taste buds. The heavy mouthfeel of this beer comes in second only to Southern Tier's Creme Brûlée. The sweetness is a good thing for me as I continue to pursue others in this vein. The hazelnut is well to the fore in this beer/ale, as is light coco, some coffee, and what tastes like honey richness for me. Thank goodness I live in Cincinnati, because it's almost always available here! Don't be put off by the price point, 14.58, because it will be well worth it if sweet is your thang!

Beer from pkthebuckeye in a trade. Poured into a snifter.
A&S: Aroma consists of huge hazelnut tones, slightly balanced by coco backgrounds. Very dark opaque brown colored beer. Light tan head disappears quickly to a ring and leaving a thin ring around the outside of the glass.
T&M: Very rich taste. Similar to the aroma with the hazelnut, but there is a little more coco along with a carmel presence. Other elements include toffee and vanilla. Missing a coffee presence, which causes this beer to lack a bitter finish. A little too sweet, but it fits well right now, serving as a desert beer. Texture is mostly smooth, but the carbonation adds enough of a punch that makes the beer not completely mellow.
Overall: Very interesting brew. It did a great job sticking with some brown ale characteristics, but at the same time adding uniqueness along with another trait most brown's lack... favor. I rarely complain about this but the hazelnut is a little overwhelming, outside of that I would recommend this brown.
