Bottle from the brewpub. Pours dark amber/brown with a 3 finger foamy beige head. Aroma is sort of nutty chocolate. Med body/frothy carb. Flavor is nutty/malty, and I can imagine a hint of chocolate. It goes a bit thin, but it’s very smooth, and the finish is delightful.

I purchased this directly from the brewery itself in Greeley. Had a wonderful combination of hops and nutty roasted malt aroma. Decent tan head on pour but quickly went away. Nice dark brown with scarlet overtones. Taste is just what I was hoping for. Rich malts, nutty, hint of chocolate malt. Good hop balance. Better than other local browns I’ve had. Would recommend to anyone.

Hazy red - brown beer, tiny white head. Dry and crispy palate. Caramel chocolate in the malt. On top is a lively plummy fruit. Minerals. Dry and slightly bitter finish. An interesting brown, but a tad over dry.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beer is a clear very dark red-brown color. No head. Wow! Roasty-dense chewy goodness. Malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, chocolate, light note of sweet molasses and brown sugar/caramelizing sugar; Hoppy with a moderate note of herb; Yeasty with a light note of dough and a moderate note of basement, toasted wheat bread crust; Moderate-to-heavy miscellaneous notes of raisin/date and plum, trace note of cognac. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic with a short, lightly sweet, lightly acidic, trace hot finish. The body is medium-to-full, the texture is almost velvety and the carbonation is —unfortunately—nonexistent. Can only imagine what the flavor would be like with a little carbonation to help deliver it to the buds. Makes for a bit of a sad finish to an otherwise pleasant experience. Will find this one again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear and filtered, brown colored body with a finger-width, tan, creamy head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Interesting aroma of strawberry yogurt, roasty nuts, caramel, and citrusy hops. Not overly abundant, but decent. Flavor is a lightly sweetened caramel malt mixed with a sweet brown sugar up front before a slightly roasty nut comes in during the middle. A very light chocolate covered dark fruit comes in before this finishes with a slightly citrusy, caramel, light nutty bitterness that lingers for a decent length of time. Light body and smooth with a noticable carbonation. Overall, this was an interesting brown ale. It wasn’t anything explosive flavor-wise, but it was what I would classify as a "Standard" tasting brown. Nothing great, nothing bad, but solid. Kind of refreshing, actually.

This is an average but pleasantly drinkable brown ale from the cow town of Greeley CO.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark ruby - frothy lace - nose is leafy tobacco, roasted nuts, toffee, earthy hops - soft carbonation, smooth texture - flavor is medium dry, with strong hazelnut - a bit of tobacco - light caramel sweetness and subtle hops on the tail end, along with a mild acidity - nothing stand out, but perfectly drinkable and enjoyable for what it is - nothing I would buy again, but decent - this brewery gets no love.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown colored brew. Long lasting foam. In the nose, toasty and roast-like malts, with hints of brown sugar, butter and dark fruits, along with a touch of diacetyl. Not much malt depth or describable malt character in the flavor. Unfortunate off flavors (metal, cleaner) seem to steal the show. Decent, drinkable brew with potential.
