UPDATED: NOV 22, 2014 Bottle. Sweet caramel malty aroma with roasted malt undertones. Pours medium brown with a thin white head and very little lacing. Starts with sweet caramel flavors with a rich, creamy texture. Finishes smooth with the caramel to start, but quickly changes to slightly roasted malt that lingers on the palate. Excellent brown!

Tap. Pours clear brown with thin, creamy beige head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malts, dates, raisins, light floral hops, and sweetbread. Flavor is sweet malt dominate with some supporting dark fruit esters and faint earthy hops; dry, lightly sweet finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

As I pour I see that it is on the lush ruby side of brown witha cream coloured head that didn’t settle with much permanence, but it didn’t bugger off in quick time either. The aroma lingered predominantly in darker grains: chocolate malt and brown ale malts especially with a touch of dusty caramel. It is a lovely smell though. The smell isn’t of deep, rich, sweet chocolate, rather cocoa powder and maybe a mention of fruit peelings. Plenty of mouthfeel upon drinking give you a chocolate mousse or milkshake sensation and then there’s a return to the dusty cocoa. There’s some sweetness, but not unwelcome. A pinch of dark cocoa bitterness at the end. I did like this, but I felt that it could have had a little more character. So often Brown Ales suffer from a slight lack of inspiration. Let’s revive a great style shall we?

Definitely the best out of the sampler, pour on tap at the brewery was dark brownish red with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, nuts, hints of cocoa powder, hints of earth and grass as well. Taste is a mix of sweet caramel and nutty notes, hints of grass, cocoa powder bittering it out a bit, finishing fairly dry. Nicely done!

Bottle. Friend brought this back for me throught their trip thorugh Colorado. Poured a brown color with a smaller tan head. Aroma was milk chocolate , nuts, and caramel. Flavor was very nutty, roasted flavors, and chocolate. Somewhat dry finish. An above average beer. Glad my friends knew how much I like good beers.

12 oz bottle at the Two Below dinner and show. Pour is a hazed brown, with a light tan head. Aroma is toasted nutty malts, some sweet honey. The taste is the toasted nutty sweet (caramel, light milk chocolate) of the nose, along with a very light roast which brings out a lot of flavor. Palate is medium bodied, though with bright carbonation and a clean dry finish. Nice brown, I enjoyed the Dillon Dam beers I had.

Had this at the brewpub in Dillion, CO. Thought it was called Sweet Georgia Brown. Pours brown. Flavor is nutty, malty, caramel and good balancing hops. Smooth and drinkable. Enjoyed.

Tap at brewery. Fairly deep brown appearance with a brown colored head. Creamy mouthfeel. Slightly nutty flavor with a delicious brown malty flavor. Sweet malty finish and aftertaste. Only beer at Dillon Dam Brewery worth a Damn.
