A good ol' brownie, from another good ol' brewery from Co. Pure clear mahogany brown, decent lil' ivory head pops his head up, and quickly turtles back.

This brown is quite American - spicy and hoppy in the aroma, and in the quaff. Sharp, tangy taste with notes of nut and caramel, but with a dominating hop finish with citrus and pine leading the way.. Almost like a brown IPA, this is quite a different brew, with a leader of the pack mentality.

Yep, Boulder can crank out the good brews, one should never be disappointed with them.

Sampled last night on 12/18/13. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pouts a dark reddish-brown in color with a small off-white head. Some lacing was seen when sipped. The aroma is of strong roasted malts. The taste was..well very bitter with a harsh strong 'hoppy' aftertaste which lingered for way to long. Tried it again a few minutes later and wasn't any better at all. After two more sips, I had had enough as it was way to hoppy of a harsh bitter aftertaste for me and poured the rest out.
