Good brewery, really nice beer. Music is niche and its nice that itís only played in the bar area. The front tables are long and provide some shelter for the ears

Metal theme interior. Packed with Denver beer geeks drinking under-attenuated sugar sludge beer. Honestly I could not find one beer that didnít hurt my teeth. They list a lot of styles around 5% which given the American malt goopiness and sweetness level you would expect to find in something like Double IPA or Barley Wine. Alas, the beer sucks but the regulars donít seem to care. And the metal theme? Iím a huge death metal fan, but all I heard was grungy sludge rock stuff. I unfortunately visited during the release of some ridiculous black sour geek beer which was being swirled and sniffed and gulped to no end. Such a beer is a testament to their dedication to throw all sorts of stupid ingredients together and market the release as rare to drum up support of the local. Dedication to mashing? to fermentation? to quality ingredients? lol.

A kind of narrow, long space on Broadway with a long picnic table and bar seating. Metal music, dark ambiance, pretty cool really. They had about 7 beers on tap. I enjoyed the Grey Watcher and the Death Ripper the most, although, they were all pretty good. Service was good and the prices were fair. Worth a stop for sure.

Dark, low lit room with metal music playing and Gothic art on the walls. Beer was rather boring and not ecceptuonal. Service was good though. Happy they had tasters of most stuff and price was decent.

dark, black, sort of cramped, but i dig it. lots of black and death metal decor, i think i spotted a converge poster, too. loud metal music playing, a pentogram over the taps, some baphomet imagery, too. solid. unfortunately, the beers could be better. but, there were a couple good ones (as well as a few outright dogs).

Visited October 9, 2013.

The place is kind of narrow and includes no extra seating other than at the bar. The brewing equipment is in the back and there are a couple of barrels up front with the bar in between. The walls have some various pagan symbols and deities. Very metal, very friendly, my kind of place, if the beer was a little better. The beer styles range from smoked saison to IPAs and a few German styles. Over all they were a bit strange but there were one or two good ones. I could see myself coming back some time to listen to some doom metal while having a beer but as mentioned before the beer needs to improve a bit in quality.

Beer = awesome and metal destroys. Add these two things together and winning occurs. Trve is true indeed. No fake, pansy anything. The ambiance is like being in a graveyard in the forest on Soltice night with a castle ominously watching from a frost mountain. Music here is hardline underground doom or death, but at volumes that still allow for conversation. The staff is so congenial and approachable, probably to counter the "unwelcoming" atmosphere. The tap selection was eight solid beers. A few of which were mild and sessionable despite having intimidating names. This served well for the 90 degree weather outside. They had a solid IPA and Belgian strong ale for more sturdy options. I wish I could give the ambiance a 666 out of 5 here. I will be back. A lot.

This place has a great feel. I would love to suck down beer here all day. The metal music and atmosphere are fantastic. Iíve been here twice and have yet to hear Tool, hopefully that will change in the future. The beers are very good, not great, but the atmosphere makes up for it. Add a food truck and you have taproom nirvana. This is a great place to sit and drink.

Visited later evening on a Wednesday. Located in the Baker neighborhood (right next to the Bakers Commons building). Long narrow room, with a large group table up front, a bunch of seats at the long bar, and plenty of space to stand around. The brewery itself is just beyond the bar. Clean, modern design with very much the rock club feel they are going for. 11 beers on, quite a bit of variety in styles. Good service, seemed like a solid crowd of locals.

So I got over my initial aversion to this place and decided to give them a shot - I should preface this review by stating that this place is totally not my scene, so take this review with a grain of salt - a fair amount of space - this is a true "metal brewery" - black and grey everything - dim lighting - pentagram over the tap handles - metal music blasting - black metal art all over the place - itís like a suburban teenagerís basement bedroom in this place - not a fan - this is a shame, because the beer is fairly creative, albeit a bit hit or miss - some is sub par, but others are quite good - the stout in particular is excellent (think a non-imperial version of Yeti) - staff was friendly and attentive - itís kind of a shame that they have carved such a narrow niche for themselves in terms of ambiance, as this may keep certain people away (myself included, at least with any regularity), but I am sure all the twenty-somethings in the surrounding neighborhoods eat this shit up, so itís probably all good for them - worth a stop if you can tolerate the terrible atmosphere.
