A: Pours a nice reddish brown. "Chestnut" has been mentioned in the reviews, and I feel it's a good description. Bubbly head that disappears quickly.

S: Nutty, toffee, and sweet. Smells delicious.

T: Taste is nutty, finishing with a toffee/butterscotch sweetness.

M: Very smooth and full bodied.

D: Drinkability for this bottle is very high, but I definently don't want more than one of these in a sitting.

This is a great beer if you want one as a nightcap, and I think it would be a great dessert beer. Also might be good to break in a non-BA with. A very good beer.

APPEARANCE: Poured this beer from the tap into a pint glass. When it got to my table, there was virtually no head, just a creamy medium tan swirl of foam with fair head lacing. There was little carbonation in the unfiltered hazy dark brown body.

AROMA: This beer's appeal lies in its decadent hazelnut character and it didn't disappoint here. There was a moderately heavy malt taste of roasted hazelnut with notes of caramel and chocolate. There was just a suggestion of hops as well as notes of brown sugar and spices. Can't wait to taste it.

TASTE: Taste was great -- pretty much the same as aroma. Moderate roasted, maybe toasted, hazelnut with caramel and chocolate notes, a suggestion of hops and overtones of brown sugar and spices. Very nice balance between malt and hops.

MOUTHFEEL: A really good mouthfeel! Medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation. A moderately sweet initial flavor that slides nicely into a slightly bitter dryness at the finish, which lasted for a moderate amount of time. Body lacing was fair and persisted for a moderate length of time.

DRINKABILITY: This is a good beer to start the night with and is mild enough to have more than one if you wish. It's not easily forgotten and I'd definitely buy it again, and again. The aroma of this beer is one that kept me going back to sniff because the scent was so good. Highly recommended.
