Looks real brown semi cloudy with good lacing
A little toasty but definitely hints of hazelnut, something else I can't place...it could be pint glass is not up to par being are Carnivores enjoying this with lunch.
T/m one of most impressive I ever had...delicious hazelnut and malt finish with hops pleasing you right away...smooth and tasty just how a brown ale should be!
Just hit the top of my brown ales list!

1 pt 6 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a snifter, reviewed live:

A - Pours a nearly transparent shade of ruby/amber, with a pretty creamy tan head of 1.5 fingers. Retention is average, though there's a good bit of lacing on the glass. Appealing.

S - Heavy, heavy crystal malt. Cream and light spice notes are present as well. It's slightly nutty, though I wouldn't necessarily pick it out as hazelnuts. Moderate strength and pretty generic.

T - The hazelnut works quite well, though I think it's a little more subdued than I'd like. Crystal malt and caramel form the majority of the taste, though there are faint hints of both toasted and roasted malt. There's a very mild hops bitterness. It's balanced extremely well though, as the nuttiness counters the sweet malts quite well. I don't find anything about it to be groundbreaking or remarkable, though it's a good beer.

M - Medium bodied, thick, and coarse.

D - I was expecting something more given the current ratings. It's a pretty good beer, and I like the nut flavor quite a bit, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

Arguably my favorite beer w/ easy access too. I would put the Plinys ahead of this. Tried this first on tap at Kennewick Brews & Blues fest 2010, kept drinking it. The look is a light brown but the smell is a rich aroma of nectar & brown. At first taste the nectar overpowers at the end, which makes it quite pleasing. Initial taste is a rich brown. Beer is just tasty as hell. Bottles are alittle differ taste to it but not much. Had oppt to have this freshly tapped in 3cities & at Rogue in newport & pdx. Ask for a "snickers" then order a "super snickers"...combo choco stout & hazel. Combo dbl choco stout & john john hazlenut. Deadly stuff.
