12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Nice stickage with the head, deep brown that pour clear with ruby highlights.

Toasted malt, hazelnuts, and toasty wood in the aroma with a faintness of caramel and bread ... clean though the woodiness lingers.

Maltiness stays true to the style as much as it can, the hazelnut influence compliments as does the wood character. Slight warmth from the alcohol is very clean. Stands strong even if the body might be a bit lacking for a Scotch Ale.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter (063A15)

A: Nice bit of ruby and amber with the tiniest of collars. Just a slight head upon the initial pour.
S: I get a lot of peanut butter, but that is likely a combination of the style, hazelnut and oak.
T: Still getting used to this style. Interesting kind of low-ABV approximation of the actual spirit.
M: Tiny, even bit of carbonation.
O: Good enough, and one of the better from the box.

Pours a nice brown ale look and decent frothy head. Smell is really nice. Very pronounced and noticable hazelnut sweetness dominates. Hazelnut again dominates the flavor, but in a good way. Very light in body, with some hop crispness in the finish. Not really tasting the oak nor scotch ale profile. More like a nut brown ale IMO.

More of a desert beer with the strong hazelnut smell and flavor. Definitely not sessionable as the hazelnut is quite powerful. Enjoyable and would recommend.

This beer was very disappointing. I thought this was the worst of the holiday pack and that is saying a lot. The only one that I found passable was the Hefeweizen.
