PORTLAND, Ore. ( TheStreet) -- Back in 1996, Boston Beer's (SAM - Get Report) Samuel Adams released a beer from its LongShot homebrewing competition that had the body and flavor of hazelnut coffee with almost none of the beer bite.It was called Hazelnut Brown Ale, and it was magnificent. For about 16 years, it was also impossible to find. That tends to be the case with one-off, special edition beers, but in a craft beer environment awash in milk stouts, coffee porters, chocolate stouts and other decadent, malty delights, Hazelnut Brown Ale's absence was a mystery. Oregon's Rogue produced a much stiffer version, but nothing came close to that sweet offering Sam Adams brewed so long ago.
