L - dark brown/amber with a very thin tan head that doesn't really stick around
S - Rich malt and a good amount nuttiness which is likely the hazelnut
T - A lot of malt and barely with a solid amount of hazelnut flavor. There's a slight roastiness to the flavor profile which is nice. There's also a little bit of vanilla in there and some toffee notes in there as well.
F - light to medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation - I would have liked this one to have a fuller/thicker feel to it.
O - Overall this is a great brown ale with great malt and barely flavors paired well with hazelnut. My only wish is that it was a little fuller in terms of feel which I believe would really bring out the robustness of the flavor profile and make this a decadent beer.

This one grew on me. The hazelnut is flavor is light at first but builds as you drink it. I'll definitely get this one again.
