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. Deep, murky rust-brown with a tight head of sandy tan. Aroma swirls with rich brown ale fragrances: toast, peanuts, pizza dough, Hershey chocolate, spicy arabica beans. Smooth roasted flavor, though some tang and bitterness is added to a pour from the bottom of the bottle. Really tasty stuff.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of light roasted malts, peanuts and dark grains with a bit of cookie supporting. Flavor has a combination of nuttiness and dark grains with a hint of roast and nutmeg underlying.

Seems very much like a porter. An outstanding porter. Good coffee taste. Only criticism is its a lil flat.

A very rich brown ale. Body closer to a stout than many brown ales I’ve sampled.
