On tap at California Kebab in Pacific Beach. Very dark brown in the tall nonic. Average carbonation and noticeably alcohol-laden. Pleasant aroma of nuts and more nuts.

This is so amazingly nutty, and yet it's pretty bitter in the aftertaste. I want to savor the nut taste, but then spit out the shells. I don't know whether it's nuts or more likely a heavy hand on the hazelnut extract, but it's a powerful taste. If you are used to drinking the hazelnut coffee, maybe this won't seem so weird.

Every sip has that really interesting high sweet note followed by that dark burnt bitterness. Fortunately I had help splitting the pint.
