draft. nutty, caramel aroma leads into the flavor. there was an element of chocolate in the first few sips that was pleasantly surprising. nice healthy malt body and a mild bitter hop to finish. a solid nut brown for sure. im surprised at the ratings. its dynamic and clean tasting - should be well into the 3s imo.

12 oz bottle from Dansting. Pour is ruby red brown with a big dirty white head. Clear pour. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, with a slight bit of fruit (apple?) Taste has the sweet caramel plue a really nice roastiness to it. Nice medium to full body, yet is very smooth and drinkable. I appreciate you lugging these beers back for me Dan.

biggenius29 (155) - Hamilton, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2007
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours brown with a small off-white head, which fades away rather quickly leaving not very much lacing. The aroma has hints of coffee. The flavor is slightly nutty and bready as the discription says, with hints of coffee in the finish, but one thing that I can not get over is a metalic taste. The body is medium with fizzy carbonation. Overall this is allright, if you can get past the metallic taste.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2007
12 oz in that multipack from that gas station. Brown-red coca cola body with tan head. Sweet dark fruit aroma. Little bitterness, caramel, sour, brown and nutty. Little carb and thin. Not the best in the style at all.

BigBeer45 (1235) - Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2007
I originally placed this rating in the Majestic Nut Brown Ale and realized my mistake --------&# Pours a ruby with some brown, some bubbles, sweet, nutty and roasted malt aromas, some tootsie roll, chocolate and dark malt fragrances, roasted malt flavor with some sweet mixed in, faint coffee flavor, small hop bite on the tongue, not a bad brown ale.

Pour is a dark brown with a average tan head. Aroma is deffinatly nutty with some caramel malts and brown sugar. Flavor is a bit weaker that the aroma but it has some bready qualities and the hops show up more in the aftertaste. Yea its pretty good.
