Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a chestnut color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of nuts, bready malts. Taste is very nutty, toffee, malts, delicious. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this is a tasty beer and if you see this beer, buy it.

12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass.

L---Medium brown. Actually a shade of brown that doesn't really exist elsewhere. A little hazy. Nice white head with minimal retention and faded into a thin cap. No lacing.

S---Malty, nutty. Some chocolate.

T---Hazelnuts, malty with a bit of coffee & chocolate.

F---Lighter than expected. Nicely carbonated.

O---A tasty beer. I wouldn't seek it out, but I wouldn't turn one down either.

Pours cloudy brown with a smallish creamy head that left some lace and a ring. Nose is earthy and a little malty, and the hazelnut certainly comes through. Unfortunately, it honestly smells a little weird and out of place. Taste is very much the same. Nice caramel from the malt and some good earthy notes. However, the hazelnut is once again a little weird and out of place. Overall, probably not something I'll have again. It would be quite good without the weird hazelnut.

From a can, this brew is a dark brown color with cerise hues in the light. Slim head. The aroma has a lot of hazelnut...woody, sweetish, earthy. Along with the nut scent is a bit of amber malt. The taste is drier than I expected, with nutty, woody flavors. Full in body.

Pours a nice cloudy brown, with a nice creamy head, that only lasted for about 30 seconds.

I didn't smell hazelnut specifically. Smelled like bread/malty. Nothing to write home about.

Taste was not complex at all in my opinion. Brown sugar sweetness. Still don't taste any hazelnut. Definite malts. Some bread.

Goes done nicely. Medium Body. A little stickiness at the end, maybe from the bitterness, maybe noe.
