UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 This beer smelled delicious! I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m not usually a fan of "nut browns". Poured a nice deep brown into the glass with a slight whitish head that dissipated into a sporadic foam. Malt and hazlenut to the nose with some slight roasted coffee notes. Taste reflects aromas. Smooth character with a very slight bitter finish. Very good beer!

Tap @ North star bar (ok selection, but I’ve only had suspect servings there). 96%ile = extremely overrated, sorry. Pretty plain and really lacking any brown ale characteristics. Tasted like hoppy pale ale with hints of roast malt (really bare hints). Not a browny, and no nuts to speak of either. I think this bar has dirty or even mixed up lines, so maybe I got misled. Would give it another shot if someone had a bottle but that’s about it, it wasn’t worth my time if what I got on tap was the real stuff, way below usual rogue standards.

thanks to alobar for bringing the bottle over. looks great, a deep brown color, like a coke or a root beer, with a nice white head about a 1/8 inch thick. aroma has the hazelnuts as well as some chocolate and loads of malts. flavor is almost a porter, but the hazelnuts are a very nice addition to the chocolates and malts and are in just the right amount to add to the taste without overwhelming anything. a little bit of grittiness to the mouthfeel, but overall, an excellent ale.

Labeled Rogue Morimoto HazelNut Ale. Pours a clear brown with a beige head. Sweet and malty. Some port-likeness. Has a hint of sweet liquirish. Creamy fullness. Roasted, coffeeish finish. Nice one, though it has a not-so-good hint of sourness.

(Bottle 65 cl) Comes as "Rogue Morimoto Hazelnut Ale". Beautiful, clear dark brown with a creamy, beige head. Nutty, malty aroma. Very nutty, roasted accents - lovely flavours indeed. Almost no bitterness. 270106

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2006 Poured a translucent brown with hint of red with a medium light tan head. Aroma is sweet malty, with a hint of something nutty--hazelnuts?...maybe, but there’s definitely something there. Flavor is full-bodied and quite malty with distinct vanilla notes. Finshes nice and smooth, mostly sweet with only the slightest hint of bitterness. Not incredible, but quite tasty.

From a bottle into a snifter. Beer pours a clear, dark, amber-brown color with a small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing head. The aroma is quite tasty: The hazelnut aroma is in the spot light, backed with heavily malty notes of roasted grain, chocolate, chocolate syrup, coffee and a light note of caramel; lightly hoppy with a note of herbs and pine with faint yeasty notes of cobwebs. Smells like a Rogue—neat. :) The flavor is heavily sweet, moderately bitter with an average-length, moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish. Dessert-like retronasals of Hershy’s syrup. The body is medium-to-full, the texture is water-to-velvety with lively carbonation.

Capa (2316) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Poured dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of hazelnut, vanilla and caramel. Flavor is nutty with caramel, vanilla, some coffe and chocolate along with some slight maltyness. It doesnt linger very long in your mouth which for the sweetness of the brew is probably a good thing. A very interesting and enjoyable brown ale.

One of my faves. However, it’s tough to have more than one or two at a sitting.
