COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hearty brown ale is named for its original brewer - our awesome Beerman Chad Opfer. Smoove Opferator started out as a very small experiment taproom-exclusive brown ale named “Brown Sugar.” Since then, it has undergone a name makeover and an expanded distribution to Iowa and Wisconsin. The taste is still the same as when we brewed the first small batch. Deep mahogany color with a hefty malt body. Robust flavors of roasted almonds, hints of chocolate with a slight bitterness in the finish. Oh so smoove!

Bottle at home. Pours a medium dark brown, nice off white head. Aroma is toasted malts, light cocoa and faint caramel. Taste is robust roasted malt flavors, a bit nutty and faint cocoa. Very mild sweetness that transitions to a mild bitterness. Nice flavorful, low boost beer. Would pair nicely with quite a bit. Wish this had some more distro down in TX!

Bomber from the ???. Poured a syrupy super dark brown, minimal tight foamy head of deep beige. Aroma chocolate syrup, tree bark, nut shell, brown paper bag. Flavor is a bit more chocolate syrupy than the aroma, nut shell, roasty, well done toast. Medium body but the carbonation is a bit soft.

Taste is of bitter dark roasted coffee, brown sugar, cocoa/chocolate, nuts and caramel malts ..... Has a lingering roasted, bitter and chocolatey flavor ... All around a very tasty brown ale. Very flavorful and rich mouthfeel

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark brown pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of cocoa powder, slight coffee into a bit of caramel, toffee, slight earth into a bit of red fruits, slight yeast. Taste was a mix of cocoa, earth, some almost ash into some earth, slight spice, touch of fruit, finishing more deeply cocoa, almost roasty. Pretty nice, like others have mentioned it borders on porter notes.

ChrisSc (393) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2015
Pint glass in tap. Decorah. Pours dark brown, basically black. Small head with lacing. Aroma is choclate malts, dark fruits, coffee, subtle bittering hops. Taste of dark chocolate bitterness. Some sweetness as well. Fairly well balanced. Body is medium. Light carbonation, smooth texture. Medium finish. Solid beer from TG, really well made for the style, but not a favorite.

Pours a cloudy brown with a thin to non existent light tan head. Aroma is mild coffee and chocolate. Taste is smooth roasted malt with sweet caramel, nuts, coffee and baker’s chocolate. Nice, a traditional British brown.

Like coffee and cigarettes but lacking the slightly richer and fuller body. A bit like death and taxes as well. Soft feel, light medium body. Wet. Tobacco, dark caramels coffee. Brown in color, some creaminess. Thanks, Andy.
