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!

12 oz bottles (Feb. 2014 an Feb. 2015).

Pours red-brown with good clarity and a modest but partly durable head.
Strong nutty aroma suggest a beer that is sweeter than this turns out to be. Rich, moderately sweet flavor with a medium load of hazelnut flavoring. Only mildly sweet upfront, it turns mildly bitter in the nutty aftertaste.

Medium+ body; medium carbonation. Smooth.

O: an imperial nut brown in both aroma and flavor. High ABV is well hidden.

Pours a clear brown with a thin tan head. The nose is sweet; caramel, vanilla and hazelnuts. The taste follows suit for the most part, with the caramel and hazelnut playing a role, and almost no bitterness. There is a touch of an alcohol presence here as well. Overall, it's a good beer, but doesn't blow me away in any one aspect.

A: dark brown to mahogany. Nice finger width tan head but minimal lacing.
S: big time notes of caramel, toffee, bread and vanilla. I do get a little of the nutiness, but not as much as expected.
T: very sweet as the caramel and biscuit maltiness rule the day. A hint of bitterness at the end but does little to balance the sweetness. The high ABV is barely noticeable.
M: Creamy and medium bodied with a carbonation level to match. Finished with a very sweet hang.
O: pretty enjoyable brew though perhaps a bit too sweet. Wanted a bit more nuttiness to cut the sweetness but its still inviting. Good effort and a nice sipper that can sneak up on you as the ABV is well hidden.

From the growler via Jungle Jim's Eastgate. This nice brown ale pours a deep dark mahogany with a firm head of off white foam that settles to a thick ring, thin pool, and nice sudsy lacing. Nose of hazelnuts, vanilla, and dark sweet malts. Flavors surpass the nose with roasted hazelnut flavors on the front and sides mingling nicely with vanilla and roasted malts with a touch of breaded malts showing their way into the foray on the middle and back of the taste with light char notes on the aftertaste. Nice mouth feel, warming, coating, and full. Overall the flavors remind me more of a hazelnut infused dopplebock. That said it is a nice change of pace from the standard brown ale. Very sweet----this from a malt lover and not a hop head, that said this idea would work great with a nice dopplebock style with a less cloying sweetness level.

For what this beer, an imperial hazelnut brown ale, it's fantastic and the particular style is nailed. Amazing hazelnut aroma and a bit nutty. Same flavors in the taste with a nice amount of peanut butter roast and coffee creamer. Very drinkable but one you want to savor and enjoy over some time. Bravo!
