Medium brown to dark caramel in color with a caramel beige head that briefly flashes and dissipates.
Very nutty in taste and aroma. A good brown ale with lots of hazlenut notes, pretty simple otherwise.

Nothing to write home about. A funny combination of simple flavors with a limp finish. Hazelnut taste is good, but not very present.

Dark brown, mostly transparent, brown head slowly dissipates and leaves nice lacing. Nutty odor on nose. Hazelnut flavor is present as is a pungent flavor I don’t really like. Feel is average. It’s ok but I don’t want it again.

From a can into a pint glass. Pour has a vibrant, slowly receding head of light biege foam that tops a fantastic amber brown body that is generally clear but with uniform particulate throughout. Scent has the pretty typical nuttiness of a brown ale with sweeter notes of toffee and hazelnut rounding it out (and almost wholly avoiding the sometimes bitter scents of a brown ale). Taste is an incredibly well balanced blend of subtle nuttiness and hazelnut with a just a smidge of bitterness peeking out. Feel is very smooth with a pleasant aftertaste that follows the taste well. An all around excellent fall beer that is very, very drinkable.

This one I really like.

Poured a deep reddish auburn with a tan head that didn't last that long, but overall it still looked good in the glass.

Aroma and taste lived up to the hazelnut hype, and even the nectar part, as the feel was a bit thick and went down with a great deal of satisfaction.

This one had a nice complexity between hops, malt and hazelnut. I will absolutely buy it again. It was also nice to have an English brown ale, as this style is not very common in South tx

First, this is a well carbonated beverage. But it doesn't produce a ridiculous amount of beer head. In fact, the lightly biege head is very modest, although somewhat enduring. The brew itself is a solid brown color that's opaque, but far from murky. The aroma is malty and the described hazelnut addition is definitely subdued. That aspect isn't even in the initial taste. But then, as the brew lingers toward its finish, the hazelnut explodes. This is a truly unique drinking experience and a good one, should you like hazelnuts. As a brown ale there's no expectation of hoppiness and this is true to that style. That this can convert a mild malt character into one with such a hazelnut infusion is admirable. This may be another limited audience brew, but it's a great choice for anyone that likes their brown ales with a hazelnut flavoring. This best part, it adds a nutty aspect without any additional sweetness.

Poured moderately hard from a can into a snifter glass, forming a couple fingers of tan head. Head soon faded to nothing. Translucent orangey-brown color. Smell is definitely hazelnut, but not super strong. Taste is some hazelnut and roasty undertones. Tasty and mild. Pretty strong carbonation and light bodied. Not bad overall, an easy drinking hazelnut porter.

Very slightly hazy mahogany brown color with a nice moderate tan head that retrains well but produces very little lacing.
The aroma is warm fresh bread, slightly sweet malt and just a hint of nuttiness.
The taste is light sweet malt, biscuits, a touch of brown sugar and nicely light hazelnut with just enough floral hops for a nicely balanced overall flavor, nothing overpowering or too understated
The body is light/medium and very smooth with mild carbonation.
Overall, just a really pleasant brown ale, very nice.

Nutty: my favorite.

L- On the pour I got a 1finger head, as I drink there is light lacing. It is a deep reddish brown and the beer is almost hazy which is interesting, hopefully normal, but kinda cool.

S- the hazelnut flavor definitely comes through and it compliments the yeast they used nicely. Not a lot of hops on the nose, but that's kinda the point.

T- A warm (feeling/tasting) malty tidal wave of flavor dissipates into a pretty subtle hazelnut flavor with very light bitterness that also reminds me of a nut, not a lot of hops again.

F- the feel is mostly consistent and overall enjoyable but if you think about it there is a slick lens that comes right before a dryness but that's quite easy to move past

O- the flavor profile carrys this beer into nut brown ale stardom, as the hops from american craft brewing remove some of the nutty qualities from this english style. Sam smith still beats them out, but this is much more accessible and attractive to modern audiences.
