A delicious brew all together. Slight metallic nose. Very light hops taste. Smooth, almost like a porter. Hazelnut flavor is a little lost in the rest of the flavors but still very good. Very drinkable and quite enjoyable.

How has this rating slipped through the cracks?!?! Certainly my all time favorite brown ale. Brown body with thin off white head, sweet maple syrup flavor with hints of nuts and chocolate, on the brink of porter in general, very dark and rich compared to the commonly watered down browns produced by most breweries, Sam’s session brew and for good reason, I rate it high because no other brown can touch it.

On tap in Portland. Redish amber color with a creamy off-white head. Sweet nutty nose. Artificial hazelnut syrup sweetness. Not a really pleasant drink.

Not the worst or the best but quite drinkable. I think I’d prefer a little more hops.

one of my favorites, also found it labeled as Morimoto Hazebut Brown. Real smooth, rich nutty flavor, w/hints of caramel...mmm. dark brown hue, w/an amazing aroma, you can’t go wrong w/this beer.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2004 Another beer I loved! But I got it labeled as Morimoto Hazlenut Brown, so I figure this is the same brew. Flavor was caramel, nutty, and creamy, which I enjoy! This is definitley hitting the top of my list of favorite browns!

Morimoto on the bottle. Dark reddish brown, good head. Smells of malt and nuts. Nice malt flavor with obvious nuttiness. This was very easy to drink.

Had from bottle on July 24th, 2004
Labeled as the Morimoto, this Hazelnut poured dark brown with a nice sized head and a nuttly aroma. While the aroma was nothing new for a nutty beer, the taste was great with a smooth finish and a nice malty flavoring combined with the nuts and cream. There was no lacing and the head dissipated quickly. Good stuff.

The name of this brew alone was enough to induce salivation, and once I poured it and the first hint of its aroma reached my nose, I knew I would not be let down. It poured a thick, earthy brown with a short-lived head, emitting luscious scents of hazelnut, caramel, and vanilla. The taste was a cascade of malty richness combining nuttiness, sweetness, and a buttery-smooth texture. Not much in the way of hops, but the sensational flavors left nothing to be desired. Truly an amazing beer by my standards, and definitely one of my new favorites.

Clear amber brown w/fine head. Nose of malt, faint hops, orange and of course huge hazelnut aromas. Hazelnut, toast, cream, very nutty lingering finish with some marshmallow. Amazingly fun beer...
