Iron Chef Morimoto is hoisting his mug on the screen-printed label of this 22-ounce bomber. I poured it into a pint pub glass giving my wife the rest, which she guzzled quickly and burped loudly. This beer was dark brown almost too dark it had a thin ( 3/8Ē) tan head that disappeared in 48 seconds. Hazelnut toffee aroma with subtle hops The taste was very good not sweet but balanced malt, hazelnut and little hops. I thought it was a little thin in mouth feel, which might be from the hazelnut extract. A good beer that I will buy again

Nutty aroma, smooth taste. Not much of a head, though. Maltiness went well with the slight but evident hazelnut taste.

In the bomber bottle. Morimoto version. Reddish brown in color. Hazelnut aroma strong. I first had this on tap long ago and was not a fan of the fake hazelnut flavor extract which was mostly chemical tasting. This newer incantation is way more natural tasting. Good balance to the flavor with enough of a malt profile to encapsulate the hazelnut.

A nice dark brown with a frothy head that reduces to a nice lacing. A sweet hazelnut aroma and a complex nutty flavour dominate this wonderfully full bodied beer. A very sweet hazelnut aftertaste. Smooth and delicious.

Mild roasty chocolatey nose with a mild citrus hop notes and relatively no aromas of hazelnuts. Mildly hazy amber color with a yellowish tan head that dissipates pretty quickly. Roasty star with some mild hints of sweet hazelnuts in the middle. Finishes chocolatey and roasty. This is very well balanced and very nicely done! Need more aroma, though.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Poured brown with a tan head. Sweet malt aroma with some nut character. Taste is nutty but also very malty like a bock. Very drinkable, and hands down the best brown ale Iíve had.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Bottle. Clear, dark red/brown color with a small tan head. Nutty, toasted malt aroma. Slightly sweet malt flavor initially that dries considerably on the finish. Hints of nuts, butter and hops on the finish. Very drinkable, but not a style Iím crazy about.

GregClow (2957) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2004
Deep ruby-brown colour with a good sized mocha head. Aroma is nutty and roasty, very appetizing. Body is a little thin for the style, but not bad. Flavour is wonderful - hazelnut, toffee & roasted malt. Nice bitterness in the finish. Quite good stuff.

Easily one of the top browns Iíve had, along with Naughty GOose. Deep brown with a head that lasts. A little bit of fruit in with the nutty character. Nice long dry finish.
