Notes: Collaboration with Evil Twin Brewing.

Loads of two adjuncts each of us have used widely in the past, brought together in what we think is pretty excellent harmony.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Thick oily appearance, strong hazelnut smell, very pleasant aroma. Forward hazelnut and almond flavor, bourbon on the back end but not very noticeable with a silky medium thick mouthfeel. Definitely worth trying, I usually do not enjoy hazelnut beers but this is working for me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Medium black body with tan colored specs that fade. Smell has the roasted hazelnut and almond with bourbon and chocolate malt. Taste had the nuts right up front, sweet and roasted, then opens up into depth of bourbon, huge molasses, milk chocolate, vanilla, and brown sugar. Feel had both bourbon ba stout viscous smoothness and stickiness, but also has roasted nuttiness, though as it warms it gets heavier and boozier. Really fine work
