Glass - Nonic
A - A clear amber/brown colored brew. It didn't produce much head, and it dissipated soon after pouring. Low C02 bubbles can be seen. No lacing.
S - Big hazelnut aroma! I pick up brown sugar and semi sweet chocolate notes as well. Slight fruit cake like notes in there as well. A touch of herbal hop characteristic, but the hazelnut really shines through. Very inviting to me.
T - Hazelnut, chocolate, and brown sugar notes flood the palate upfront. I pick up herbal and citrus like hop notes in the back. It finishes with a mellow twang of hop flavors, more hazelnut, and very low bitterness. Sweet tasting but not enough to make you sick of it before your finished.
M - Medium bodied with low-moderate crispness and a smooth, almost viscous feel.
O - I'm really digging the hazelnut flavor and smell in this brew. The beer is all around inviting to me and pretty drinkable with almost anything. I'd definitely pick up a 6-pack of this brew in the future. Cheers!

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.
