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.

12oz bottle, no date, poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Very dark on the table, ruby red to mahogany with a bit of a glow when held up to the light - not a lot of light getting through. Thin tan head upon pouring slowly died back to a ring at the edge. Some strands an islands of lacing that slowly slid back down the glass.
Smell: Very rich and quite sweet. Caramel, toffee, vanilla ice cream, waffles with maple syrup, fresh baked danish, and a hint of hazelnut.
Taste: Very sweet - not cloying but definitely dessert in a glass. Malt sweetness, creme brulee, toffee, rich caramel, rum soaked raisins, with some bitter at the finish including burnt sugar and roasted malts.
Mouthfeel: Creamy with light carbonation. Definitely sticking to the teeth.
Overall / Drinkability: This may be one of the sweetest beers I've ever had, if not the sweetest, but it's still tempered by some bitterness so it's not cloying, but it's close. The beer is a dessert all by itself and is so strong I wonder if it would pair with food or if it might be too much. The intensity is such that I could not have a 2nd one in an evening. It's a special occasion beer, but it is definitely not an every day beer. Alcohol is well hidden but notable about halfway through the glass. Best pace yourself with this one. Definitely an extreme beer pushing the limits. Pick up a bottle if you have a sweet tooth.

Pours a beige head. Color is a dark brown.
Flavor profile: Marshmallow, chocolate, cocoa, hazelnut. Roasted malts with some syrup.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy. A little hot.
This beer is very flavorful, but it shows a little alcohol. It has a lot of flavors, but it is a little syrupy or artificially sweet.
Serving type: on-tap
