Bottled: Reddish brown coloured. Clear. Light brown and dense head. Loads of chocolate, sweetness and some fruit in the aroma. Flavour is dominated by chocolate as well. Is rather sweet and light malty and fruity. Is smooth and light hoppy. Ends on a light bitter note. Is medium bodied.

Really enjoyed this brown (again, not my style) Roasted maltiness in aroma. Mocha Hazelnut flavor and finish with a nice balance of hoppiness. I’d like another.

Deep color with little to no head. Big toasted nose to it. Great smooth flavors of toasted nuts mixed with a touch of molasses. Nice light hop to it. Very clean finish.

lamas (1392) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 14, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Pours a deep mahogany with thin bubbly tan head. Aroma is nutty, roasty and malty. Taste is malty and a little on the thin side. Roasty malts are present and a little stale tasting. Finishes with a nutty taste. This beer might not be too great but at least it stays true to its name.

Iron Chef Morimoto is hoisting his mug on the screen-printed label of this 22-ounce bomber. I poured it into a pint pub glass giving my wife the rest, which she guzzled quickly and burped loudly. This beer was dark brown almost too dark it had a thin ( 3/8”) tan head that disappeared in 48 seconds. Hazelnut toffee aroma with subtle hops The taste was very good not sweet but balanced malt, hazelnut and little hops. I thought it was a little thin in mouth feel, which might be from the hazelnut extract. A good beer that I will buy again

Nutty aroma, smooth taste. Not much of a head, though. Maltiness went well with the slight but evident hazelnut taste.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 8, 2005
In the bomber bottle. Morimoto version. Reddish brown in color. Hazelnut aroma strong. I first had this on tap long ago and was not a fan of the fake hazelnut flavor extract which was mostly chemical tasting. This newer incantation is way more natural tasting. Good balance to the flavor with enough of a malt profile to encapsulate the hazelnut.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 6, 2005
A nice dark brown with a frothy head that reduces to a nice lacing. A sweet hazelnut aroma and a complex nutty flavour dominate this wonderfully full bodied beer. A very sweet hazelnut aftertaste. Smooth and delicious.

Mild roasty chocolatey nose with a mild citrus hop notes and relatively no aromas of hazelnuts. Mildly hazy amber color with a yellowish tan head that dissipates pretty quickly. Roasty star with some mild hints of sweet hazelnuts in the middle. Finishes chocolatey and roasty. This is very well balanced and very nicely done! Need more aroma, though.
