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...

22oz Morimoto Looks woody brown, poured with a tan head that died leaving no trace of its former self. Aroma of_SURPRISE!_hazlenut, which makes me think of capachinos, some carmelly malt, but well integrated. Drinks light, almost too much so, and comes back in the finish. Flavor has a kick(almost sour??) in the finish when the hazle comes out to play...really light bodied, but still retains some dark malt character. This one sat in my fridge for months b/c I thought it would suck. It is better than the Berghoff one I’ve tried, though. Not so overwhelmingly "flavored." I think this beers lightness is its blessing, but I can’t see myself buying it again, unless things are bleak. Maybe it could be made into an ice cream topping or something...somehow, it just seems like a beer that would be better if it weren’t a beer.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2004 22oz Bottle labeled as Morimoto Hazelnut Signature Ale. Pours a dark redish carmel color with a fizzy tan head that dissapears in literally a few seconds. No lacing. Smell is a sweet dark roasted, nutty and maybe slight coffee. The nutty flavor is very pronounced, and a bit sweet. I can see whay it’s called ’nectar’. Dark almost burnt lingering flavor and a slow roasted finish. Plenty of carbonation. Interesting and quite bold flavor.

Dark brown color with a modest head and a fine chocolate and nutty aroma. Delicious malty flavor, chocolate, hazelnuts, vanilla with a buttery note, creamy and sweet. Sometimes these flavored beers can have an artificial taste to them but this one was just right-everything tasted like it belonged there. Smooth finish with just a faint bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2009 This beer is like dessert in my mouth. It take me a while to drink an entire 22 of this beer, for it is very sweet, thick, and nutty. It tastes sort of buttery and caramel like to me. Sort of like a really rich dessert. I loved this beer.

Deep roasted chocolate aroma but a little faint. Huge, light brown head. Dark ruby red in color. Body looks thick and oily like a barleywine. Great lace. 33 IBUs are masked by the malt. Doesn’t taste like there are any hops at all. Very unique hazelnut flavor. Gets better as it warms. Drank this after a Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA, so it was pretty mellow by comparison.

Pours with a one-finger head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Deep, clear amber color. Low carbonation. Nose is a light malt. Light bodied which is surprising for a brown. Starts malty and then the hazelnut kicks in - very nice. The ABV is 8.8%. $4.60 for a 22oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma. This is a rating for the Rogue Morimoto Hazelnut Signature which is different from the Hazelnut Brown Nectar but the server software does not allow ratings under the Morimoto label.
