Tasted from bottle. Pours black with thick brown head. Aroma of bourbon, coffee, toffee, caramel. Hazelnuts big time on taste. Flavors of bourbon, caramel and toffee with some molasses. Moderate to heavily sweet with mild bitterness. Hazelnuts make this an interesting and very well done beer.

Batch 2 - Pours one shade shy of black. Nose is dominated by hazelnut with a hint of chocolate - just amazing. Taste follows nose; however, there's a slight astringent character in the flavor profile. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a prickly carbonation and some residual heat. Overall, a very good hazelnut stout; however, the flavor is dwarfed by aromas in the nose.

Black with dark brown soapy head that dissipates quickly. Hazelnut is dominant on the nose and taste, to the point that it leaves room for no other scent or flavors, but that's ok given the hazelnut is so pleasing and authentic. Mouthfeel is medium to light.
