I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Clear brown color with a fingers worth of light tan head. Fair amount of lacing.

Smell- Lightly roasted malt and hazelnut aromas with a hint of cocoa.

Taste- Hazelnut and toasted bread flavor with hints of cocoa and brown sugar.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with an above average amount of carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

Overall- A good beer that I thoroughly enjoyed from the first swallow.

An excellent beer that got better once warmed up and it's full flavour was shown.

Aroma: chocolate (similar as in an amber ale) with hazelnut

Taste: Chocolate, hazelnut, spice, with some slight melon and a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste

Alcohol content is masked fairly well and appearance is excellent

Overall - A brilliant beer full of chocolate/hazelnut goodness - pure deliciousness!

Pours a nice brown with a thick head. I for the life of me can't detect any hazelnut smell at all. Although the taste is good for a brown ale I can't detect any hazelnut taste or flavor at all. Although it's highly rated here I'm not sure why. The big letdown for me is the lack of any hazelnut.
