A brand new style from Samuel Adams out of their Fall Harvest mix pack.

A: This beer pours a dark reddish/amber color with a thin mocha colored head that leaves some nice lacing.

S: The aroma starts out with Caramel and coffee, quite strong. Finishes off with a deep roasted hazelnut and some malts.

T: Coffee and caramel right up front in the flavor, followed by that dark roasted hazelnut. This beer finishes with a smooth, underlying spice from the hops.

M: Very rich and creamy, has a lot of nut flavor with a nice blend between the coffee and caramel. Dark and thicker than a typical Sam Adams, very drinkable.

O: Not a lot of beers except for stouts and a good IPA make me say "wow", but this beer does. Amazing flavor, the dark roasted nut flavor is very well blended with the coffee and caramel notes. I always save the newest beers in the mixed pack for last because they usually turn out to be the best. This one was no different and I couldnt ask for a better replacement of the "Bonfire Rauchbier" From 2011.

A - nice opaque brown. Small bubbly head, decent lacing, attractive enough but doesn't scream drink me.

S - oh the smell. Oh my God the smell. It smells like hazelnut
Lots of hazel nut. I got some good coffee and toffee aromas mixed in there. I could smell this all day long.

T - this is hazelnut coffee in beers clothing. Good sweet hazelnut flavor mixed with a balance of bitterness and solid malt flavors. The hazelnut tastes so good that I honestly didn't care what else was in here. Hazelnut. Yes. I found no offensive flavors in this beer.

M - the body wasn't too full or too light, nice and easy on the palate. Medium carbonation. Just right.

O - I really love Sam Adams beer. But I do often get dissapointed with some of the beer choices in the seasonal collections. Not this fall. The 2012 harvest collection trumps the 2011 collection hands down. This is a perfect addition to their fall lineup and I hope it stays for years to come.
