Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - DEC 13, 2003
Dark brown approaching walnut, soapy head, little aroma, not much to speak of in the mouth (some malt), but when you swallow. . .aftertaste kicks up the back of your throat and hits the roof of your mouth with a hammer. . .a Hazelnüss Sahne hammer. Apart from that, it's pretty ordinary. No astringency, no roastiness. Good, but not great.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2009 2009-01-22. Dark brown body with a modest tan head that fades. Mild malt aroma, muted nuts and malted milk. (6+) Flavour is sweet with very light roasty touches to the malt, fruit-nut character, very light bitter accents, slightly odd aftertaste. (6+) Average plus palate. Bottle make be getting a bit past its prime, its not as good as I remember. 6/3/6/3/13-14Bottle from LCBO

Re-Rate Nov 3 2004 Nice caramel red-brown body, with a good sized beige head. Sweet malty aroma with a touch of nutty undertones. Aroma is muted somewhat. Sweetness of the malt is balance by a touch of bitterness and the nutty flavours which linger on in the aftertate. Ever so slight roast nuts. Hazelnut definitely shows up more prominently in the aftertaste. Palate is decent but thinner than seems fitting. Nice beer but not mind blowing. Thanks for the bottle Tupalev. 6/3/8/3/16 <P>Original Rating Body is a nice dark colour, flavour is complex and nicely sweet a lingering nuttiness especially in the aftertaste. Deliciously creamy on the palate. 6/3/8/5/16

Nice brown colour with some nice malts aroma. Some nuttiness in mouth but after all the other great beers, this one doesnt come out as much (GBOA, 2003)

r464 (2033) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2003
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 (5999) - Phoenix, Arizona, 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.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2003
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 (2063) - 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.
