[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]
The pour was a clear medium brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown creamy head that reduced down to a medium film and large collar with fair runny lacing.
The aroma was most definitely loaded with Hazelnut and also had a toasted caramel malt and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a slight coffee roastiness.
The taste was malty, nutty and lightly sweet with a hint of caramel early on, with the finish possessing a mild toffee presence and a roasty coffee ending. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with the roasty sweet nutty taste fading ever so slowly into the back ground.
Mouthfeel was a step or two below medium in body and quite creamy in texture with a good solid medium carbonation.
Overall a fantastic, unique tasting Brown Ale that had all the flavors blending so well that it made this drinking experience simply wonderful. Only thing I wish is that they sold it in six packs year round...

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.
