The Hideout’s Smugglers Hazelnut Stout puts a unique spin on a typical stout, with lots of nut and roasted qualities that carry through the finish. There’s a bit of caramel, chocolate and vanilla too, which adds a minor sweet flavor to what’s already there. Definitely one of my favorite stouts, and one that if you can find it, you should definitely try.
