I got the chance to try this at a local bar with some other folks, and I'm also gonna call this a nut brown rather than a winter warmer.
Looks pretty light on the pour, very little head that's gone quick. Smells very strongly of hazelnut, maybe even kind of peanut buttery. The taste was a lot different than expected. All I could think was, 'my god, I'm drinking thinned, carbonated peanut butter!' Not that it was bad, but I think the nutty flavor was a bit on the overwhelming side. The strong carbonation also can make it a bit tough to put down.
All in all, not my favorite, but some of the folks I was with were all for it, so I guess it's a matter of personal taste.
