Tap. Dark ruby color. Really nice, thick white head. Very mild nose. Pretty sweet -- notes of pecan in particular. Way too thin for what it is.

12oz bottle from Steve
a little bit on the thin side could use more mouthfell and some stonger malt backbone

More black than anything. Almost opaque. Aroma is a bit metallic. Flavor is dirty like the ghettoblaster. Light body. Miss.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish pour with off tan head, aroma brought notes of nuts, roast, ash, caramel, toffee, some very slight hints of cocoa. Taste is a mix of roast, coffee, over done coffee beans into some hints of toffee, cocoa, touch of spicy yeast, finishing roasted, ashy, dry.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Surprisingly complex beer. Lots of roasted nut flavors mixed with sweet caramel, yeast, cocoa, faint clove and brown sugar. A bit too sour for my liking, but it offers a unique twist. Medium bodied and darker than expected.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice, roasty aroma with shades of chocolate. Small head that dissolved quickly. Full bodied and overall quite tasty. I believe this beverage rates out the best here at RateBeer among all Motor City offerings. After sipping three other beers that were all average (or less), I would agree this is definitely the one to try when visiting the pub.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper with a rather large meringue looking topper. Aroma is grainy and malty with some roasted character, a hint of fruit and some nuts. Taste is a bit awkward. Heavy roasted character with a fruity off-like flavor. Not terribly sweet or full in body but drinkable enough. A bit of nuts and caramel to go with a spicy & peppery finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brown ale poured a very deep brownish red colour with a nice big brown coloured, foamy head. To the nose there are scents of vinegar, roasted malt, nuts, caramel and cocoa. First sip was a tiny bit over-carbonated but not to the annoying level. This gave the beer a slightly thin mouthfeel. Flavours of roasted malts, nuts and smoke were in the forefront. Finish was smokey and roasty.
