Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was dark brown color with a finger and a half’s worth of tan foamy head. Light lace.
The aroma had some roasted nuts, caramel/toffee malts and a steady grassy bitter hoppiness. Light chocolate and a little bit of earthy spice.
The flavor balanced nicely between the roast and the sweet fully leading into the aftertaste and following into the finish.
The feel was about medium bodied with a pretty good sessionability about. Carbonation felt good and the ABV felt good too.
Overall, nicely done brown ale well worthy of having again. Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2013

Draft at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Hazy deep orange-red-brown body, thin to medium tight beige head. Nose of toast, brown sugar, and especially Tootsie Rolls. Sweet body with Tootsie Rolls, nougat, and caramels; nutty and candy-like with a bitter finish. BigBeer45 (1522) - Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2012
On tap at Kuhnhenn, served in a shaker,
this drink had a dark brown pour and had a nice light tan colored head when served at the bar, and there was nice lacing on the glass as I drank,
this beer had aromas of chocolate, caramel, toasted and roasted malt, and some milk duds (which I found to be a good thing),
the flavors were toasted and roasted malt, chocolate and caramel,
the mouth feel was a little less than medium and had some creamy feel on the tongue,
a nice brown ale, with a good chocolate nose and flavor, I would drink again.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. A lacey fresh brown. Good chocolate, good for its basic style and worth a try. Above average mouthfeel Dogbrick (12918) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. The beer a cloudy dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts, malt and hops. Medium body with a roasty character and notes of chocolate malt and hops. The finish is sweet and malty with a touch of spiced hops left behind. Decent overall. mikem409 (2022) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2012
