Imperial Hazelnut Truffle pours a back color, with a very small, tan lacing head. Weak aroma. Flavor is creamy, some sweet hazelnut notes, and then a very light chocolate finish. Good body and feel. Overall, a very nice and easy drinking porter.

Picked up as part of a mixed four pack, which is a stellar idea for those of us with beer commitment issues. 12 oz. can dated 11/8/18.

The pour is porter black, which you can find in any hobby store paint rack. Aroma is just as advertised, plenty of hazelnut & chocolate. I like both.

Imperial Hazelnut Truffle is just about the end of the review. Chocolate, hazelnut, dusting of brown sugar & cherry pits. Surprising amount of chest-warming alcohol for the ABV, & simultaneously a bit thin for it. Too sweet to entertain anything more than a dozen ounces.

Nice hazelnut beer, which ain’t easy to pull off. Pretty good brew.

I would put this firmly between the Raspberry and Chocolate Truffle versions of this beer.Tastes a bit artificial which all hazelnut flavored items do, but there is enough there to want me to finish the beer.

This beer pours a simple black with a solid, sustaining brown head. The aroma is soft and sweet, with milk chocolate. praline, and dark, dried berries. The flavor is sweet, with a big dose of raisin and prune, milk and dark chocolate, mild coffee, and a bit of praline at the back end. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, with a sweet, sticky finish. Overall this a a solid, if unremarkable dessert beer - sweet, well flavored, but a bit lacking in depth.
