A wonderfully nutty brown ale. Lots of caramel toasted malt and sweet hazelnut flavor, while keeping a dry bready crisp malt body. Well balanced feel. It's almost on the edge of being too much "hazelnut syrup" flavor, but ends up being just right.

I've had it many times over the years as it's one of my favorite brown ales, and years ago it was one of the first beers I could call a favorite.

Perfect initial hazelnut taste, follow up is smooth and nutty. Nice and thick texture perfect for an Ale.

Poured bottle into dimpled seidel. Ruby brown color. Head takes a moment to form, then fades, leaving lace.

Smells like whole wheat bread, nuts. A little cherry and molasses.

Taste: Nuts, sweet liquid bread (hey, its beer), light roasted malts. Hops are minor.

Mouth is smooth. You're left with a "I ate a handful of nuts" taste."

One of the best smelling beers I've encountered, and great taste to boot. Really good.

What can I say, I look like the guy on the bottle so it must be good. The alcohol content is superb for its nutty flavor. Not heavy at all and the flavor pops in you mouth with every sip.

Last week I bought a couple of Dead Guy Ales and loved them. Today I decided to try another beer from the same brewery. First impression... love the graphic design work on the label.

Smell: awesome, malty nose. Really pleasant. Definitely a good start.

Pours up with a nice head that dissipated after about 30 seconds.

This beer starts strong and nutty, just an amazing flavor with a super clean finish. Great beer. Love this beer and this brewery!

Favorite beer of all time, especially out of the tap. Amazing nutty taste along with a hazel complexion.

Picked this up to add to the variety of beers in my fridge that I consider to be good for Fall. This certainly came through. Very well done with nice caramel malts supplying an earthy taste. The hazelnut compliments the base ale very well. My one complaint is that it is just a bit sweeter than I'd like. Still, very solid and good for Fall and Winter.
