Twelve ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours chestnut brown with a cap of white head and some thin lace.

The aroma is not surprisingly full of hazelnut. A little bit of citrus in the background with some brown sugar in the background. Hazelnut flavors with some brown sugar. Seems to have an odd twange on the finish. I don't really know how to describe it.

The body is light with good carbonation. Overall not bad. I was excited to see this in six packs. But lets be honest here, I'm still going to pass.

Served in a pint glass

A - It pours dark amber in color, and I got a ton of tan head. It left some lacing down the side of the glass as it receded.

S - Obviously, there was a lot of hazelnut aroma. But there are some earthy, roasted aromas to balance it out.

T - The first flavor I am met with is of course hazelnut. It gives was to a more generic nuttiness. It finishes with some bread and toast flavors.

M - Medium

O - I love the nose of this beer. The taste runs a course from sweet to malty. I like how this is not overpowered by the hazelnut. There is plenty of it there but other flavors balance it out.

A. Dark amber appearance with a light tan two finger head that breaks quickly to leave a thin covering.

S. Smells of hazelnut and caramel malts. This doesn't really float my boat since the hazelnut reminds me a little bit of how vomit can smell.

T. Good thing it doesn't taste like vomit - I get mainly caramel malt and graham cracker. Leaves a prickly, lingering finish with the hazelnut really coming into focus.

M. Light to medium bodied with adequate carbonation.

O. A decent beer that was pretty easy to drink but nothing I need to revisit.

from my notes:
12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass

Pours a clear light brown slightly reddish nice tan lacing. The Smell is nutty malts hazelnut of course. Taste is a nice blend of sweet molasses caramel malt and rich toasted hazelnut extract. Slight hint of hop variation. Very smooth and creamy

Overall a great twist on the American Brown Ale with a flavor punch without being too sweet

A dark brown apperance with a thick creamy head. A slight hazelnut and hop smell. Taste was mild and balance with slight nutty flavor. The texture in the mouth was smooth and creamy. Overall this was a easy drinking beer and could be consumed in large volume.
