A good brown ale. This is my first beer from Upslope and it doesn’t disappoint. Pours a dark brown, with an thin, off-white head. Nice malt profile with a touch of burnt and hops. Nice beer.

Pours a dark brown with a little amber tinge and a thin layer of almond head. Strong malty aroma with some good smoked nut notes. Taste is more smoked malt flavor with some good mocha and toffee bite. Fantastic brown ale.

Pour is dark brownish with off white head, aroma brings notes of toffee, toasted nuts, biscuit, some caramel, spice, earth notes in there. Taste is a nice sweet nutty and toffee flavor, hints of caramel and toffee, bitter earth finishing a bit sweet. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz (squishy) can, no date from Lukas Liquors in Lone Tree. Perhaps there isn’t much carbonation? We shall see. Clear auburn brown with 1/16" beige head that lasted about 4 seconds before fading to a very thin ring. I’ll have to update with my other cans to see if they’re as flat. Nutty roasted aroma with some toffee sweetness, but also a tinge of some twang. Not really getting any twang in the flavor--just a nutty, lightly roasty, a little chocolatey, somewhat sweet brown ale. Semi-dry with a lactose note, bitterness peaking at a 2-3, slightly ashy. Barely a tingle of carbonation heavies this into a full bodied brew. Flavor’s good, though.

12oz can poured into a Dimpled mug at 43°. Color is a nice dark brown with good carbonation and a tight tan head. Aroma is a deep scent of roasted malt with a light spicy hop note in back. Medium body that gives a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is rich with a bold roasted malt flavor, just a hint of coffee and a light sweet toffee taste, then a mellow bitterness tops it off. In the after taste the smooth roasted flavors slide back and let the bitterness show a little more with a nice spicy hop flavor. Overall its another great brew from these guys, looking forward to try more brews from them.

Aromas of coffee predominate. Decent brown ale that will be good with hearty winter fare.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chestnut/ruby brown with a decent sized head. Delightful aroma of chocolate infused with coffee grounds, with a dash of brown malt. Tasted like a prime example of a classy brown ale; sweet, chocolaty, malty, with a gentle touch of coffee on the finish. Fantastic for a style that sometimes disappoints.
