alexsdad06 (10596) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Draft @ Founders. Pours a clear brown color with a minimal off white head. The aroma is caramel malt, fruits, bread, and light floral hops. The flavor is more caramel malts, chocolate, light fruit, and the slightest hint of nuts. Light bitterness to the finish. Medium bodied. Not a bad brown ale.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2008
2007 Great Taste: Whooo! Mmm... Rick Flair tie in... Anyway, this was a decent brown. Taste of bread, toffee, and peanuts. Slight bitter end with a tiny twang of alcohol that rests on your tongue. Good body.

MBGF07. Dark brown body with a medium beige head, lasting. The aroma is cola, caramel, toffee and grapes. Flavor is caramel, light berry, nuts and grapes. Medium body is very soft with dense carbonation. Solid brown ale, not sure I understand many of these other ratings.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Tap @ GTMW. Hazed and caramel chocolate in color with a khaki tan head. Maris otter and hazelnuts meet brown sugar and woody shavings in the nose to do little to increase the allure of the ale. Light bodied and flavored, mildly sweetened with brown bread. Diluted caramel ribbons attempt to give traits to the blasé beer. Harshly carbonated and medium bodied at best, finish with a nutty edge amidst chocolate and pecan shavings to boot.

antzman (316) - Clarksville, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Draft at Indiana Microbrewers festival. Pours a murky brown with a huge tan head. The aroma was of nuts, a bit of chocolate, and plenty of malts. The flavor is a combination of a brown ale and a Belgian Dubbel. The roasted nuttiness of a brown, with some of the complex flavors of a dubbel. Nice clean finish, with just a touch of hops. Well done. I wish they would bottle this just so I could get the Ric Flair label.

Tmoney99 (14769) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Draft sample at MBGF07. Poured a hazy dark brown color with a moderate frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Medium toasted nutty malty aroma. Medium body with a thin texture. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would not recommend this to a freind as the first choice.

3.2
Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 30, 2007
On tap: The aroma is lightly nutty with some faint roast and smoke. It’s a barely transparent brown with a small off-white head. The flavor starts with some faint, somewhat watery chocolate and fruity sweetness. I get a faint sourness in the background. Flavor finishes with a faint roasty grassiness.

3.4
pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUL 29, 2007
On tap at Founders. Dark warm brown with a slight haze and a fine tan head. Not much of a head after a while. Faintly dark malty. Not too chocolatey, a bit nutty. Some out of place roast. Clean, other than a little fruit, but largely empty. Full creamy body, small bubbled mouthfeel without being watery, this is still quenching. Sweet malty brew. Creamy with a bit of fruit. A hint of diacetyl seems to only add to the creaminess in this beer. Rather clean with a dry finish. Some floral hops on the back end. I

Silphium (3199) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUL 29, 2007
On tap at Founders. Cloudy orange-brown body, medium buff head. I’m not sure what they were going for here, but there was a surprising estery component, with notes of banana and clove permeating the otherwise rather simple sweet, toasty body. Thin, lacking depth and character. Reminded me of a dunkelweizen rather than a brown ale.
