22oz Morimoto Looks woody brown, poured with a tan head that died leaving no trace of its former self. Aroma of_SURPRISE!_hazlenut, which makes me think of capachinos, some carmelly malt, but well integrated. Drinks light, almost too much so, and comes back in the finish. Flavor has a kick(almost sour??) in the finish when the hazle comes out to play...really light bodied, but still retains some dark malt character. This one sat in my fridge for months b/c I thought it would suck. It is better than the Berghoff one I’ve tried, though. Not so overwhelmingly "flavored." I think this beers lightness is its blessing, but I can’t see myself buying it again, unless things are bleak. Maybe it could be made into an ice cream topping or something...somehow, it just seems like a beer that would be better if it weren’t a beer.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2004 22oz Bottle labeled as Morimoto Hazelnut Signature Ale. Pours a dark redish carmel color with a fizzy tan head that dissapears in literally a few seconds. No lacing. Smell is a sweet dark roasted, nutty and maybe slight coffee. The nutty flavor is very pronounced, and a bit sweet. I can see whay it’s called ’nectar’. Dark almost burnt lingering flavor and a slow roasted finish. Plenty of carbonation. Interesting and quite bold flavor.

Dark brown color with a modest head and a fine chocolate and nutty aroma. Delicious malty flavor, chocolate, hazelnuts, vanilla with a buttery note, creamy and sweet. Sometimes these flavored beers can have an artificial taste to them but this one was just right-everything tasted like it belonged there. Smooth finish with just a faint bitterness.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2009 This beer is like dessert in my mouth. It take me a while to drink an entire 22 of this beer, for it is very sweet, thick, and nutty. It tastes sort of buttery and caramel like to me. Sort of like a really rich dessert. I loved this beer.

Deep roasted chocolate aroma but a little faint. Huge, light brown head. Dark ruby red in color. Body looks thick and oily like a barleywine. Great lace. 33 IBUs are masked by the malt. Doesn’t taste like there are any hops at all. Very unique hazelnut flavor. Gets better as it warms. Drank this after a Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA, so it was pretty mellow by comparison.

Pours with a one-finger head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Deep, clear amber color. Low carbonation. Nose is a light malt. Light bodied which is surprising for a brown. Starts malty and then the hazelnut kicks in - very nice. The ABV is 8.8%. $4.60 for a 22oz bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma. This is a rating for the Rogue Morimoto Hazelnut Signature which is different from the Hazelnut Brown Nectar but the server software does not allow ratings under the Morimoto label.

Morimoto label: Pours brown with reddish hue. Creamy white head sits on top. Mild hop bitterness with roasted malt/nutty aroma. Hazel nut flavor with creamy texture. Seems to be a bit watery but still quite good. Cinnamon and chocolate flavors seem to be in there as well. Good dessert beer.
