Deep reddish colour with a tan head. Malty, dark fruit sweet aroma with notes of nuts and bread. Malty flavor with a caramel sweetness and hints of nuts and dark fruit. Dry finish. alobar (3826) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Tan head that disappears quickly, but hugs the side of the glass for quite some time. Nice dark brown color with some red highlights when held up to a light. Aroma of roasted malts, hazelnut, and some chocolate. Taste is malts, chocolate and a nice hazelnut aftertaste, which is more pronouced as the beer gets warmer. A Wonderful Beer! nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Hazy carmel colored with a dry sweet aroma. Slighty nutty flavor, with honey and small hoppy notes on the back. Smooth, a tad sweet(but in a good way mind you), and malty...very drinkable. Nice offering. joergen (28392) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2006

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2006 This beer smelled delicious! I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m not usually a fan of "nut browns". Poured a nice deep brown into the glass with a slight whitish head that dissipated into a sporadic foam. Malt and hazlenut to the nose with some slight roasted coffee notes. Taste reflects aromas. Smooth character with a very slight bitter finish. Very good beer! xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2006
Tap @ North star bar (ok selection, but I’ve only had suspect servings there). 96%ile = extremely overrated, sorry. Pretty plain and really lacking any brown ale characteristics. Tasted like hoppy pale ale with hints of roast malt (really bare hints). Not a browny, and no nuts to speak of either. I think this bar has dirty or even mixed up lines, so maybe I got misled. Would give it another shot if someone had a bottle but that’s about it, it wasn’t worth my time if what I got on tap was the real stuff, way below usual rogue standards. richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2006
thanks to alobar for bringing the bottle over. looks great, a deep brown color, like a coke or a root beer, with a nice white head about a 1/8 inch thick. aroma has the hazelnuts as well as some chocolate and loads of malts. flavor is almost a porter, but the hazelnuts are a very nice addition to the chocolates and malts and are in just the right amount to add to the taste without overwhelming anything. a little bit of grittiness to the mouthfeel, but overall, an excellent ale. sunevdj (4094) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
Labeled Rogue Morimoto HazelNut Ale. Pours a clear brown with a beige head. Sweet and malty. Some port-likeness. Has a hint of sweet liquirish. Creamy fullness. Roasted, coffeeish finish. Nice one, though it has a not-so-good hint of sourness. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
(Bottle 65 cl) Comes as "Rogue Morimoto Hazelnut Ale". Beautiful, clear dark brown with a creamy, beige head. Nutty, malty aroma. Very nutty, roasted accents - lovely flavours indeed. Almost no bitterness. 270106
