Pours cloudy brown with a smallish creamy head that left some lace and a ring. Nose is earthy and a little malty, and the hazelnut certainly comes through. Unfortunately, it honestly smells a little weird and out of place. Taste is very much the same. Nice caramel from the malt and some good earthy notes. However, the hazelnut is once again a little weird and out of place. Overall, probably not something I'll have again. It would be quite good without the weird hazelnut.

From a can, this brew is a dark brown color with cerise hues in the light. Slim head. The aroma has a lot of hazelnut...woody, sweetish, earthy. Along with the nut scent is a bit of amber malt. The taste is drier than I expected, with nutty, woody flavors. Full in body.

Pours a nice cloudy brown, with a nice creamy head, that only lasted for about 30 seconds.

I didn't smell hazelnut specifically. Smelled like bread/malty. Nothing to write home about.

Taste was not complex at all in my opinion. Brown sugar sweetness. Still don't taste any hazelnut. Definite malts. Some bread.

Goes done nicely. Medium Body. A little stickiness at the end, maybe from the bitterness, maybe noe.

L: Hazy dark brown with some ruby red at the bottom. The head is beige and small, but a thin film remains.

S: Surprisingly huge and sweet; immense amounts of hazelnut, milk chocolate, maple syrup, coffee, vanilla, earth, and wood. Smells like coffee and hazelnut ice cream.

T: Toasted hazelnut, caramel, toffee, brown bread, brown sugar, maple syrup, milk chocolate, coffee, vanilla, cream, date, fig, and raisin. Hints of light smoke. Earth and wood chips.

F: Medium-bodied, moderately carbonated. Smooth and well-rounded, finishing slightly sweet.

O: A killer brown ale! My only complaint is that it's a little too sweet, but this is delicious and complex.

It pours brown and very clear with hardly any head. The aroma is full of hazelnut (not so much the roasted kind but more like hazelnut coffee). Rather sweet with some late bitterness. Very light mouthfeel.
