Founders Frangelic Mountain Brown

The fourth release in Founders special release series (I can't remember the name at the moment) was Frangelic Mountain Brown, a hazelnut coffee brown ale. Unlike the previous two, this wasn't barrel aged or anything like that so some people weren't as excited about this one as them it seemed. I thought it sounded cool though and was happy to get a bottle.
Very big hazelnut nose with some coffee too. Decent body, not too thin considering it's a brown ale at its base. Nice and nutty with some coffee coming up in the back. Slight roast too but it's mostly covered by the strong hazelnut coffee flavor. Honestly, it tasted straight like a cup of hazelnut coffee and I thought it was pretty great.
