3.5/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark brown color with maber highlights, minimal tan head but what head is present is retained. Contributes a small amount of lace.
Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, grain and minor hop note in the background. Very modest overall aroma for a brown ale.
Flavor is sweet chocolate with a slightly roasted charcoal note in the middel and short but moderately bitter finish. No real complexity here, pleasant but nothing that grabs ya.
Mouthfeel was a little bit too thin, not full and chewy enough for a brown, pleasant overall though.
Drinkability loses a few points for a slightly syrupy or sticky aftertaste.

Served at the MBC taproom. Well, they seem to have fixed their admitted initial problems, but this still needs a little work. I'm used to nut browns having a much more complex flavor profile, and this just wasn't there. There is a fine, slightly toasty aspect to its fine brown frame, and just a peek of nuttiness. They seem to be working on it with each batch. At this point, they aren't calling it "Majestic" anymore, so that may signal a change in the recipe.

Poured a light brown/caramel/walnut color with a small murky head that bubbled for a minute then left. Smell was purely of nuts (walnuts). Taste once again showed some walnut dominance. Other flavors were weak but I noticed some caramel and dextrin sweetness. I didn't recognize any hops. This one needs more balance and complexity to be anything above average.

Poured a medium brown/ruby color with very little head.Nice nuty smell with some earthy undertones,taste was roasty and nutty.There was some chocolate tones as well to this one,pretty easy to drink.Better than average but not outstanding from a good brewery in Michigan.
