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!

Dark, smooth, rich chocolate. Nutty. A great brown ale. Really good. Trust me fucks. Looks smells and tastes good for a brown ale, how can you deny?

Shared bomber poured to snifters showing a ruby highlighted brown color, with a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was moderate roastiness, mocha notes, a touch of nuttiness & light caramel sweetness. Medium bodied, with average carbonation, the taste was dry & roasted, included some earthy bitterness, but was not overly expressive, flavor wise. A basic Brown, imo.

Dark brown pour, slightly cloudy. Single finger head. Aroma is very chocolatey. Silky smooth mouth, full bodied. Taste is full of chocolate with a bitter roasty finish. Lingering bitterness is really nice. Lots of lace.

Tap at the brewery. Murky brown pour. Nose is cocoa and coffee. Tastes of autocrat coffee syrup for my RI brethren, also cocoa powder, root beer, earth, and brown sugar. Rich flavor profile medium bodied. Very enjoyable brown.

Bomber. Pours a dark brown color with a medium sized beige head. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, sweet malt, toffee and roasted almonds. Taste of cocoa, chocolate, roasted nuts, and toffee. One of the best brown ales i’ve had.

Best of class for brown ales. Strong roasted malts, chocolate, and caramel. Nice and hoppy as well. Pours deep brown with a tan head. Had out of a bomber at home. Great beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(22oz bomber) clearish medium brown, soapy creamy tan bubbles. Nose of rich chocolate malt, honey, mildest hop. Taste of toasty malt, toasted nuts, cream, medium thick body, nice beer.

22oz bottle pours a veru dark brown with some thin, tan head. Nose is interesting, its more in the range of stout than brown, but I am NOT complaining, toast, chocolate, rootbeer, some almond, some brown sugar, some caramel. Flavor follows closely, lots of caramel and brown sugar, mild toast, malt, some raisin, mild vanilla. Full bodied but dry and fairly smooth. An elevated brown ale. On the verge of a stout.

22 oz bottle shared by a kind soul at Chickow day. Pours dark brown in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, some nutty character, a moderate bitterness to the finish, pretty decent brown ale.
