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.

Drank it from the bottle so I don’t know what it looked like but if it looked as good as it tasted it would have gotten a higher score from me. As soon as the top popped I could smell a nutty malty aromoa. The taste was very smooth with a hint of chocolate. Another great Rogue beer.

Nut brown coloured. Strange aroma with notes of nuts and seaweed. The flavour is nutty with notes of chocolate.

Morimoto, Bright white head with a light golden color. Very pleasing nutty, soba? aroma. Dry, somewhat hoppy flavor, zesty. Has a grainy flavor with the malts that’s somewhat appealling. Pairs very nice with chinese food, nice balance and texture.

On tap. Nectar is an apt description for this flat dark brown brew. The aroma is of sweet chocolate and chickory. The flavor is as advertised. There are buttery hints, chocolate malt hints, hazelnut syrup in some sips. Although this was creamy thoughout (but not thick), the only complaint is with the complexity seeming to come with bad blending and disparate sips. Maybe the viscocity of the extract has something to do with this. Overall, an excellent sweet treat.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2004 morimoto label, dimpled mug: lots of ingredients, as the bottle lists... complex sweets and bittering, citrus and nutty. average appearance and palate: dark brown, but almost with a soda like head. fizzy, creamy palate. good brew, but nothing special. i agree that it’s almost porter-like, but it does scream brown ale. what struck me most is the wonderful aroma. it smells better than it tastes. all in all, i like it. next time i have this i want to try it like so: "hazelnut float with warm oatmeal raisin cookies" i saw it on a menu once, looks good. UPDATE 8/21/04: regular ol' label with the bearded guy... very clean tasting brew. nice and perky front collapses into a subtle smooth and tasty nutty chocolate sweetness. subtle indeed, a bit thin, watery... but it's easygoing and nice. downrated, actually. UPDATE 10/19/04: smooth, cremey, and delicious. hmm. not too thin, barely watery, and it's chocolately. it's just sweet enough. uprated.

Beautful nutty, light brown color. Very velvety and creay. Pleasant in the mouth. I can’t really sense the hazelnut, but it is without doubt a beer with good quality. Could be more agressive.
