An inviting rich, sweet aroma with a light cream colored head which disappears quicky. I carbonation is low but adds to the amazing rich haxelnut taste, with hints of coffee and chocolate. The first taste leaves you in awe with a quick jolt of incredible flovor and then a seamingly, but not actually fast disapearence, which make you want more. A great beer for relaxing after a meal, on a saturday, or if your not a religion man, on Sunday too.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2004 Morimoto edition. Pours a nice dark brown with a small off-white head. Hazelnut aroma and maybe chocolate? Taste is amazing, sweet, rich, hazelnut and chocolate tastes and ends bitter. Very smooth.

Mmmm... what a nice beer!! The hazelnut brown pours a nice dark, almost expresso brown with a thin, tan-colored head. Although the head was thin, it leaves a nice ring of lacing around the glass. The aroma was bursting with hazelnut and chocolatey malt. What a stimulation to my nose. The taste was definitely pleasurable to say the least! It’s like drinking hazelnut pureed with dark chocolate. Carbonation was very light, which adds to the taste. I have a problem deciding which beer I like better, this or the chocolate stout. :-) I highly recommend this. A great dessert beer!

Tap. Creamy beer, deep solid dark. hazelnuts predominate. has many good aspects, the creamyness being one, but the hazelnuts rule over every aspect of it.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Brownish red in color, thin creamy off white head. Havent tried this in years, used to be VERY hazlenut, but it appears they have toned it down. I liked the hazlenut forward approach, but it still is a nice brew. A bit on the creamy side, they changed it for sure, but is still a winner.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2004
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.

0o9i (438) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 3, 2004
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) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, 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!

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.
