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.

On-tap at King's Table, Beavercreek, OH

A: The beer is ver dark reddish amber in color and appears black when viewed from afar. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: moderate aromas of sweet hazelnut syrup are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of hazelnuts along with a bit of sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes a lot like a hazelnut flavored coffee without the coffee. It's definitely a dessert beer with the sweetness. The beer is very drinkable considering the strength because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.
