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.

A: Light brown. Golden hues.
S: Great smell. Hazlnut is present as well as some other lighter tree smells. Maybe some caramel and honey scents as well.
T: Hazlenut is present. It's very sweet and smooth with some oaky hints as well.
M: Sits pretty light with lingering nutty flavors. Some lingering bitterness but we'll get to that.

So this beer was on tap at a restaurant back in Ann Arbor and when I tasted it there it was amazing. The flavors were very pinpointed and the beer sat very smooth. When I was on spring break I picked up a bottle assuming it was going to be equally as amazing and I was wrong! The bottle version seemed old and warn down. Still good, but nothing like what I had had on tap. I looked for a freshness date but there was none to be found.

This review was from the bottle version but if I get it on tap again this will be redone and likely will increase.

Clear, dark, ruby red with a big, quick, foamy head that leaves some beige lacing.

Hazelnut! That’s about all I get, hazelnut.

The flavor is sharp with fruitiness. It is overly sweet with some hazelnut oil that does not add to the experience. This one is woodsy with a brief, pungent, acrid finish and light tartness.

The body is light to medium with a hint of alcohol.

A fine occasional beer and one I am glad to have tried, though not what I seek in a brown ale.

A- Medium brown with a thin white head that disappears quickly.

S- Sweet hazelnut and caramel malt.

T- Caramel malt comes through with a nutty finish that stays after each sip. Some sweetness, but not overpowering.

M- Good carbonation, very smooth, medium bodied.

O- Very good brown ale with a lot of flavor. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

I asked a couple of times the age of the barrel and was assured maybe a week old.

Appearance: amber in color characteristic of a brown ale. No head and no lacing.

Smell: definitely hazelnut. From beginning to end.

Taste: Hazelnut throughout

Mouthfeel: Like nutella, it sticks to the roof of your mouth and does not want to leave, (which is a good thing).

Overall: You want hazelnut, this is your beer. Great tasting that finishes clear, but the aroma is with you throughout.
