So there's this show that I watch all the time, Iron Chef--I'm sure you've heard of it. Well, I've been watching it since before they did Iron Chef America, all in Japanese with voice overs. Great show.
To my surprise, in the beer aisle, was a Rogue beer with Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto on the label. No way? Way. Apparently Chef Morimoto partnered with Rogue on a couple of their beers. So here I am tonight with the Morimoto Hazelnut, a Rogue Signature Ale.
Another terrific beer from Rogue. You can for sure taste and smell the Hazelnut. It's like the Frangelico of beers. Being a beer guy, I prefer this to Frangelico, but both have that intense nutty flavor. Very nice dark beer, rich, creamy, and a really nice finish.
