Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a semi-dark copper color with a film of a little white foamy head. No lace.
The aroma had some toast, toffee/caramel malts, some chestnuts and apples.
The flavor was towards the sweet side with a developing little bit of dark fruit playing with the apple sweetness. Decently blended aftertaste rolling into the finish.
The feel was just a tad under than medium bodied with a decent sessionability about it. Good carbonation and the ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, I’d have this again during football season if I lived in Michigan. I didn’t mind this beer one bit. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Tap @ Wolverine State: Deep chestnut-copper mixture with a beige film that skims the top, collecting as a chunky collar. No lacing. Aroma of lightly toasted & metallic tinted toffee malts. Hints of apple & nuts, very modest & light all around. Flavor is an amped up version of the aroma. Toasted nuts, light toffee malts, slightly metallic with a touch of prune & red apple sweetness in the finish. Kind of thin. Not bad, just okay... Not really what I want in a brown ale, though. umich03jm (3512) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Tap at the brewery. Listed as 5% now. Clear copper pour with a small head that fades to a thick ring. Faint aroma. A mix of toasted bread, light roast coffee, and cocoa. Taste has a very light sweetness at first but turns fairly roast-y and bitter. Some ash, coffee, and a touch of chocolate. Medium to thick body.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear brown with a tan head. Roasty aroma. Taste of tobacco and ash. Really pretty good brown. Very drinkable. chibuck (3521) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2011
draft.... dark brown with lots of copper... this smells nice, really creamy nuts, can’t wait to taste... tastes terrible, generic skunked brown, just bad and not worth trying

On tap at the brewery. Poured a clear earthy brown with a near white head that dissipated slowly to the edges and laced slightly. Aroma had notes of roasted malt, toast and a slight backing note of sweet chocolate. Flavor had notes of toast and biscuit with some growing sweet grain and a hint of sweet chocolate in the finish.
