Got this from the Sam Adams fall snack pack.

Served in a Celebration Ale pint glass.

A: Actually, this is pretty much a beautiful beer. Clear, burnt brown color, with a whopping beige head that took a long time to die down significantly.

S: Sort of a fake hazelnut quality on the nose though. Damn shame. However, I did get SA signature profile in there.

T: Sort of like being at a carnival, ordering a sno-cone, and having the attendant squirt some of the artificially flavored fruit into the ice. Wish it were better, shoulda been better, but no.... it wasn't so. The bitterness on the end was the only redeeming quality to my mind. The rest tasted stale to me.

M: Bitter ending was a plus, the lack of sweetness was a plus, and the lacing was ridiculous. However, since I didn't really dig the flavor, I really didn't care.

O: I'll skip this entry in the snack box in the future.

I'm not a big fan of hazelnut beers but this is pretty good, if not great and a bit simple.

Copper-brown, it has a medium pale tan head soon thinning to ring.

Aroma is strong toasty, slightly caramelised bread crust, barley with strong hazelnut, bit of wet bread & earth.

Taste is toasty caramelly-earhty up front with hazel soon joining. The hazelnut is firm but not overpowering, it's pretty balanced and his toasty-bitter-sweet finish and aftertaste.
