5.0 / 5.019 ReviewsVery smoothQuality smooth brown with a hint of nut. Served 5 gallons at a party and it was a hit.January 2, 2011Very niceIt turned out very good after just three weeks in the bottle, very smooth and satisfying taste, cannot stop at just one. The shipping raises the cost or I would have scored all fives. Try it, you won't be sorry. Now I want to try the honey nut brown.June 21, 2011Big Hit!Brewed 5 gallons and served at a Haloween Party. Everyone loved it. Will definitely be brewing another batch of this very soon.November 10, 2011Tasty brewThis beer was very good, a smooth rich flavor with a definite nutty bite in the aftertaste. It was well balanced and I really enjoyed it. It�?���s all gone, so that says something. Shipping is expensive, but that�?���s not Midwest's fault, look at the price of diesel.April 5, 2012Incredibly smoothThis is an excellent brew that even my friends who do not enjoy dark beers liked. A very simple recipe to make, but I prefer the Thames Valley Ale yeast (1275) over the recommended Scottish Ale yeast.September 21, 2012Good kitJust like the name says, it's a smooth nut brown. Goes down easy, with a bit of nuttiness. A good fall beer. I didn't make any adjustments to the recipe, and it turned out great. I may have to add this to the rotation.December 11, 2012Awesome 1st all grain brewThis was my first attempt at all-grain. I even cheated and popped the first bottle only a week into carbonation......I can't wait till next week to see the difference. The beer was really smooth and flavorful!February 4, 2013Nut brownThis nut brown is very good and smooth_x000D_ _x000D_fermented very fast, next time i will add some oak chips to give it a aged taste. or more grain to increase the alcohol %_x000D__x000D_will be ordering againFebruary 15, 2013smooth good tasting kitIt turned out well after spending a month in the secondary. For a darker beer it's not bitter at all. A nice nutty malty taste. I used the White Labs Edinburgh yeast, a good choice.March 8, 2013Smooth with twist of toasted coconutI purchased this kit to tweak it with a hint of toasted coconut (as a clone to Kona Brown). The brown sugar makes it very smooth and mildly sweet but the addition of the toasted coconut makes it out of this world. I have already brewed it twice in a row within 3 months time. I can't keep it on tap and I am planning to bottle the next batch to give away to friends. I poured a pint glass of Kona Brown ale from the bottle and a pint glass of my version as a blind taste test and me version was the favorite everytime! I just took unsweetened coconut and lightly toasted it in the oven until golden brown (12oz) and added it to the secondary for 4 days. I then filtered it and added a drop of coconut extract (baking extract) to the keg and then force carbinated it. It is hard to put down! This is my winter favorite and a definite crowd pleaser unless you don't like coconut.March 9, 2013
