3.88/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - not much of a head. Head is tan, but barely resides on the top of the beer. Lacing lasts a little on the side of the glass. Beer is brown in color, with a tinge of copper. Dare I say, hazel? hahaha

Smell - Again, I don't know if it is just because of the name, but I do smell hazelnuts. Earthy smell and a bit of grass as well. Something sweet as well, maybe the yeast.

Taste - as per normal, taste is very similar to the smell. A delicious combination of nuts and yeast, a great brown ale taste.

Mouthfeel - A OK

Overall - I think it is an above average offering that I would drink again, but it doesn't blow me away.

4.48/5  rDev +24.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. bottle poured into sensory glass. Pours a clear, deep reddish brown color with a tan head that stays a while before leaving a fair amount of lacing.

Smell is heavy on hazelnut, sweet malt, toffee, and chocolate.

Taste is of hazelnuts and very well balanced sweet chocolate and toffee with some hop bitterness. In the mouth, smooth, creamy, and medium bodied.

Overall, an excellent brown ale that uses hazelnut as well as any beer I've had. Should be available year-round in six packs. Well done.
