3.58/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Tawny brown hue with a solid two-inch head; great retention and decent lacing
S: Roasted hazelnuts up front but more of a hazel syrup than the actual nut; some toffee, caramel, brown sugar, and molasses underneath along with some subtle spicing and toasty bready malts; it smells good albeit a touch fake
T: The hazelnut flavoring tastes even more like hazel syrup--like the kind you add to coffee; it's nutty and bready and toasty and sweet and decent but just a bit forced
F: Creamy, medium texture; slightly chewy on the finish; this is my favorite aspect of this beer
O: I like this beer and it works well in the cooling months--I just wish the flavors were more natural and came together a bit better
Serving type: bottle
