Large bottle with the Morimoto label. Dark brown with a head that instantly vanished. Strong aroma like a brown ale, though with hints of the hazelnut. Deep bitter flavor with coffee and hazelnut hints and a sweetness to it. Should not be served too cold.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - NOV 23, 2003
Purchased under the Morimoto name. Poured dark brown with a quickly disappearing toffee head. Strong candied hazelnut aroma here; the flavor is woody and sweet with a tangy bitter finish. The beer is a tad watery which detracts from the unique and yummy flavorings.

Deep mahogany brown color with a small but long lasting tan head. Aroma is malty and nutty, sweet but not over the top. Flavor is initially sweet and malty, followed up by hazelnut and caramel. Full bodied and very smooth. Best brown I ever had.

Reid (1949) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2003
beautiful looking beer dark almost mahogany brown with a nice tan coloured head that shrinks yet persists to the end. A great malty/nutty aroma greets my nose wonderful stuff. Taste starts off with a nice malty sweetness followed by a mineral tatse in the middle then near the end the hazelnut shows through..some very faint hops and some nice alcohol warmth in the throat. Very smooth and welcoming on the tongue. An exceptionally drinkable beer..gets better as it warms.

Morimoto signiture. Flashes of red as light tries to enter through this dark brown nectar. Poured with some force and still only a thin ring of head on the outskirts of the glass...eerily headless. The aroma is at first nutty and a bit caremely, followed by a very mild alcohol aroma. Thick and smooth palate with tight carbonation. Hazelnut flavor dominates the finish. I really enjoy this ultra-smooth, nutty libation.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2008 Old rating: 7 3 6 3 13 Practically opaque red-brown color, quickly dissipating tan head. Woody, grassy aroma. Malty start, some of the hops in the middle, with the hazelnut flavor riding out the finish. Sticky sweet residuals. This beer is nicely smooth to drink, but it seems a bit one-dimensional, really only featuring the hazelnut extract. I think I liked the aroma more than the flavor, actually. Re-rate 3/11/2008. Great aroma - lots of chewy crystal malt and nuttiness. The flavor kicks in nut dryness and some green hops. A solid nut brown.

Morimoto edition. Has anyone ever had that Nutella stuff that Kobe Bryant endorsed before his little ordeal? Well, it tastes kind of like Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar, and that's a good thing. Aroma is of (gasp) hazelnut and the flavor is smooth, crisp, and not over the top. Probably my second favorite Rogue (after the Chocolate Stout).

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Brown beer, very clear. Thin Tan head that does not last long. Not over the top Hazelnut flavor, but it does kick in in the finish, a nice subtle note. A bit of the Hazelnut note in the nose as well. I like that the sweetness in this beer is very subtle, I hate when these beers are over-sweetened. The front taste is malty, and I can't pull out any taste of the hops, which I was not really expecting to.

(65o ml bottle) This is truly a nice brown ale. Pale yellow, medium sized head and a deep red body. Nose and flavour of caramel, malt, oak and whiskey. Very delicious. Many thanks to MartinT for graciously picking this up for me on one of his roadtrips to the southland...

Now this is a good brown ale, a style that is usually not my favorite. Loved the way it looked in a plain pint glass with a dark nut brown and light brown head. The hazelut added an interesting angle, as that flavor seems implied in most of the browns anyway, but it actually seemed to give more malt flavor than the cider-type finish I seem to get with most browns. Liked it and will be getting more soon.
