3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at CIgar City. Pours a Maduro brown with a white head. Nose is some light cocoa, tobacco, and hints of nuts with apple cinnamon like from a box of Apple Jacks. Flavor is similar with some cocoa, tobacco, and malt followed by Apple Jacks. Light to medium in body and lingering fruity spice in the finish.

On draft at CCB poured a brown color with aromas of light apples, cinnamon, bread, and some light malt. Flavors follow suit, light apples and heavy on the cinnamon, a decent maduro treatment.

Tap at CCB. From notes. Beer was brown with a off white head. Taste just like a apple cinnamon muffin with the bread like flavor from the malt. Has a little bitterness on the end.

This is a great brown ale. Brings me back to childhood cereal. Plenty of cinnamon on the nose, and I don’t really like cinnamon, but it’s balanced with oats and nuttiness that make it really enjoyable. Flavor is smooth nuts and cinnamon, really enjoyable with a background of chocolate. I’m happy with this one, through and through.

Pours nutty brown with a minimal head. Aroma reminds me of a brown-sugar crusted apple pie. Taste is sweet and smooth, though the cinnamon imparts a slight metallic taste. Finish allows the apples to come through, thought it doesn’t last long.
