look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.
