Is loaded with a wonderful roasty/nutty flavor. Chocolate malt and the right touch of Chinook hops blend together for a full body.

Saved this gift from Psychprof for a special day. First smell out of the bottle smelled like coconuts. Second smell was amore traditional ale smell. Very smooth and easy to drink. Wish I had another bottle. Might have to find a trade to make for some more.

Was lucky enough to try some of whatís left of this brew. This has a great roasted malty aroma and a medium brown color. The flavor is sweet, nutty and well-balanced. Overall, very drinkable, genuine, and true to style. Thanks jskendzel.

This style is very good according to the styles of the guidlines in BJCP. The nutty portion is evident at the end of the brew as it warms. Slightly bitter, carbonation was a bit much however. Overall a good brew that is enjoyable to drink and for once obeys style guidelines.

A very good brown ale, extreme carbonation, aroma of malt and bread / yeast slight mustyness. Nutty flavor with a hint of chocolate. Quite fizzy on the tounge. Dry hoppy finish.

Psych Prof provides me with this and I provide perhaps the last review of this rather nice beer, no longer brewed. Nice, lighter malt aroma wafting up from good-looking light brown body. THe beer is certainly in the style of a nut brown ale rather than the rich American variety. This is an elegant beer at the beginning, very much like Brakspear Vintage. I seem to lose the flavor toward the end of the bottle however. Again, rather delicate.

A nice reddish-brown beer with minimal head and a nice aroma. Nutty, earthy hops and bread all make an appearance. Intense on the malts - caramel, homemade biscuits, a hint of nutty texture. Nice earthy hop presence to balance. Finish is balanced as well and the aftertaste is neutral and doesnít linger. The appearance of the beer and the label (usually not a concern for me) make it attractive. Average body. Solid American brown and Iím sad it is no longer available.

Yes, a very good brown ale, but I donít feel itís the best. That honor, IMHO, goes to Rogueís Hazelnut Brown. The Boyneís biggest asset is the aroma - wow! A crisp, rather dry flavor with a light hop ending. Too bad the brewery failed around June of 2002. R.I.P.

nice brown ale, pours reddish brown with medium head, decent malty aroma and flavor, with a bit of nuttiness. Good beer but lags behind other Michigan brownís like Bellís best brown and New Hollandís Kourage.
