hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - OCT 10, 2004
Nice dark brown colour with a fairly thin head that stuck around and left some decent lacing. This beer was very smooth and delicious. there was a hint of bitterness and I could decect the hazlenut (of course) and some chocolatly notes. Defintaly a decent beer for the winter months.

Rogue Morimoto HazelNut - Bottle pours a deep amber with a tan head and some lace. The aroma is of hazelnut, but in a much more natural way than other hazelnut ales out there. It does not smell artificial. There are also good strong chocolate notes. The flavor is like a chocolate and hazelnut sunday. The palate is smooth and creamy. Overall, this is the best beer I’ve had with hazelnut extract.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2004
Hazy brown colour, small head. Rich and strong hazelnut aroma, notes of burnt sugar, toffee, leaves and licorice. Full, nutty flavour. Toffee, anise, burnt sugar and hops. Clean and hard body with soft chewy malt. Delicious! The best brown ale I ever had to date.

JMerritt (1828) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2004
Sampled at Brew Ha Ha 2004. Clear ruby/brown colored. Light brown head is massive and leaves very nice lacing. Roasted hazelnuts, brown sugar, and molasses aroma is absolutely delicious. Flavor has more of that sweet, nutty hazelnut characteristic that kept be going back for more samples. Slight bitterness in the finish. This was the highlight of the festival.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 19, 2004
A very smooth, sweetish brown ale. More akin to Samuel Smith’s brown ale than to other west coast browns. I finally sampled this beer at the California Brewer’s Festival and it gets my nod for Best of Show, even though the judges piced Allagash Double.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2004
From a MoriMoto bottle. Red brownish color, with a medium fluffy tan head. Malty, nutty aroma, choco, some hops and chewy toffee. Very nutty flavor, with some sweet ad nice undertones. Tastes like some kind of sweet dessert liquor. Very nice flavro and a very nice and balanced brew. Excellent!
