Draft: I gave the palate a little lower rating because, it was a bit to sweet for me. However other than that it was very good with a wondeful hazelnut flavor. And some chocolate notes were detected.

Morimoto bottling. Deep chestnut brown color, nice head, but it faded away. The initial taste was of a traditional, smooth brown ale. As it warmed, some interesting cola flavors began coming through. The end of the glass was very interesting, with hazelnut blending in beautifully with the malts and hops. A fine brown ale.

An excellent brown ale. Nice malty flavors with the hazelnut coming through a bit subtle in both taste and aroma.

I've had this a few times and never bothered to rate it. Brown, transluscent, with a moderate sized brown head. Aroma is nutty, brown sugar, and prunes. Sweetness is somewhat balanced with the hops bitterness. Sweet finish. Great Brew!

I found this beer had a great aroma but the flavor was a bit lacking. I did however think that it had great mouthfeel and the head of the beer was nice.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Deep red to leather brown body with a thin tan head. A little lacing.
Nut and chocolate dominate the aroma.
Big rich malt flavor burst. Hazelnut and the spicy Saaz make for a nice, sweet finish.
Medium bodied with a thick, somewhat oily mouthfeel. A finish that goes on and on.

Had this at the Bon Vivant Beer Lovers Club on 8-29-03. This was labeled as Morimoto HazelNut, and not as HazelNut Brown Nectar. This poured a nice shade of brown with a small fluffy tan head. The nose is a sweetened, malted nutty whiff mixed with light hops. Very pleasant. The taste is nutty and sweet also but with a little more hops coming through. Very good beer. We had 7 Rogue beers this evening but only 3 were new to me and this was the best of the 3.

No head whatsoever. Nice color though. Nice brown from the tap. Some hop/malt from the aroma and taste. Not the best Brown Ale I've had, but not bad. Not as much hops as I wanted, but overall OK.

Ubiquibeer (140) - Cleveland, USA - AUG 23, 2003
Pours a dark brown, muddy color with little head. Caramel, malty aroma. Taste hazelnut (of course), malts, coffee, and an ever so slight bittersweet, then dry finish. The alcohol notes are more noticeable as it warms--it is after all over 6%. I think it is a tad bitter than normal for a brown ale, but as a hophead, that is not a bad thing. Not as thick as I would want, but the flavors in this beer are outstanding. Malty, rich and earthy. Almost tastes like a full-bodied Vienna. Brown ales are not my favorite style, but I can appreciate the quality of this brew. To all my hophead comrades, take a break from the hop once in a while and try this delicious malty wonder.
