Chocolate, nutty aroma. Deep thick mahogany body with good clarity and thin tan head that recedes to cover. Chocolatey, nutty, cocoa-like flavour. Incredible mouthfeel and lasting cocoa aftertaste. A bit sweet at first sip but the flavour really grows. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth with lively carbonation on the tongue. Unfortunately, the carbonation dies fairly quickly (+/- 10 mins) and it becomes a bit sticky. Medium body. Bottle.

Bottled as Morimoto Hazelnut. Clear mahogany, very dark, very red, small light tan head with minimal lacing. Light aroma, caramel malts, chocolate, nuts; smells like a candy bar. Chocolatey, nutty like hazelnut extract, lightly bitter finish of hazelnut flavor, light caramel malts throughout, fairly smoothe. Lots of foamy-creamy carbonation leaving some in my mouth after the beer is gone, dry, lightish medium body. Definitely a sweet brew, tons of milk chocolate in the aroma; I don’t like the fact that I can taste hazelnut extract as preceisely what it is, but very unique brown and a Rogue beer for sure.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2004
Bottle (Morimoto)5/3/04: Pours with an average kaki colored head that quickly diminishes. Aroma: nutty, malty, sweet maple/hazlenut, maybe even some toffee here. Flavor: Wow, I haven’t tasted this before. Hazelnut, carmel, butter, sweet, but also with a slight hop bitterness. Nicely balanced. Finishes malty with a toffee/hazelnut aftertaste. Excellent beer.

Morimoto!!! -I love Iron Chef's!
Rating # 465
Baby pours me a deep brown, but mahogany body… the head is kaki, tall and thick. I take a sniff…. It smells like homemade waffles covered in maple syrup. The flavor is freaking identical!!! Damn, brings a rich Nutty Sweetness, a long sense of hazelnut… hence the name of the beer, butter, oats and sweet but lightly smoky molasses. The body is a bit thinner than I would have liked.. it’s almost cola like, but the aroma and flavor are tremendous! One will find Toffee to Know End in this Brown Ale!

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2004
Tap at Andy’s. Real nice clear brownish red color with a tan head. Nutty, malty aroma. Flavor of hazelnut carmel and rich malt. A little to the sweet side.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 27, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 Brown color with a smallish thin tan head. Aroma was light and sweet with hints of maple. Taste is a sweet hazelnut nectar with a mellow hop bite. Although sweet, it’s very good. Tastes a bit like a flat cola and anise.

Wow...a real treat and wonderful beer! Pours dark with a medium tan head, good lacing. Not much to the aroma, earthy-sweet. Chocolate and toffee in the nose, malty sweet through and through with just the right balance of hops. Very smooth creamy mouthfeel with an unforgettable sweet nutty finish. I'll be enjoying this one to the end!

Not an ale, or even a beer, but "nectar", eh? Only Rogue has the moxie to pull that off, and pull it off, they do! Color is a perfect brown, reddish at the sides. Solid, thick, bubbly tannish head. Aroma is swimming in nuts, completely nutty, call the boys in white coats with the butterfly nets..this ale is totally nuts!! A touch of cocoa in the nose, also, but the hazelnut is king of the castle here. On the palate: buzzing with hops, lush, full maltiness, medium to full body. This one rare brown ale that is brimming over with character! Persistently smooth and satisfying, with a late fruitiness that shows up in the finish. Another winner from the reliable Rogue stable!
