Brewed in the industrial business district in Greeley, Colorado. Just like our unique building the brewery calls home, this unique brown ale uses quality malted barley, imported hops, and pure yeast to make a subtle nutty taste to our traditional brown ale.

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.

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.

Has a sample at the brewery. The aroma is soft brettanomyces character, nutty, cherry. The flavor indicates a brettanomyces character as well. There are notes of nuts, roasted malts, caramel. Not bad, not sure if the brettanomyces is intentional, but it works.

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.

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.

Bomber poured a clear reddish brown with a small, quickly diminishing amber head. Aromas of carmel, chocolate, toasted malt and a hint of nuts. Palate was edium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, chocolate, toasted maslt, light nuts and a hint of smoke with a smooth finish.

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

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.

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.
