Cask at CCB. Big reverse cascade creamy off white head. Clear deep amber. Rich poofy cask/nitro lace. Nose is muted. Small berries and fresh strawberry juice. Tase is quite rich and heavy nuts. Fatty and roasty. Creamy, light palate. Aerated. Not bad. Good job at an English style. Mild saltwater through the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at Cigar City. Brownish pour with a nice frothy head. Lots of peanut in this - awesome for its style.

Pours dark reddish brown with off white head, aroma has notes of roast, some smoke, touch of grass, earth, slight sour grain. Taste is nice sweet biscuity bread, roast, toasted bread, with some slight earth, grass, finishing slightly dry and bitter. Way too easy to drink.

Entering old-rates. Draft @ CCB, cheers to the old Ybor cigar factory Lector. Encore une petite brune qui se laisse déguster. Rappelle la Chaveta dans son profile léger mais pleine de saveur. Donne un brun léger avec col beige. Un arôme léger de malt avec des notes grillées le tout présente un léger parfum houblonné. Palais est similaire avec un profile malt très agréable allant vers le chocolat léger et une pointe grillée. Le tout conserve ce léger aspect épicé houblon et de grains concassés.

Mini CC growler thanks to David. Pours a mostly clear purple color with some brown shades, a small white head. The aroma is sweet berries and biscuit malts. A nice smooth flavor akin to a brown ale with lots of fruit, dry, toast, a bit of chocolate and nuts. Very nice. Could we get this on tap in Utah, it’s only 4%?

Draft. Pours deep amber orange with a thin off white head. The aroma has light sweet malts with some toasty and nutty notes. The flavor is well balanced, with toasted malts, a light sweetness, and some floral hops. Decent.

On tap at Cigar City brewed up by none other than Retebeer’s amazing fishingnet. It has a murky dark amber body with big bubbled weak off white head. The mild aroma pulls up some roasty malts, a bit of black strap molasses and some spicy to earthy hops. The taste has pretty solid roasted malts to chocolate malt notes for such a small beer. Those notes are followed by modest burnt malts, growing earthiness and then sliding into spicy hops. Full flavored mild to be sure.

5/16/11. On tap at the brewery. Dark amber/brown with a creamy tan head that lasts and sticks to the glass. Mild roasted aroma with some hints of caramel. Flavor has some roast, chocolate, apple, but is really kinda light in general. Not too shabby.

Tampa, Fl - on tap at the brewery tasting room. Dark copper pour, off-white head, nice lace. Pleasant, earthy, tea-like aroma. Flavor has some mild citrus, coffee, earthy with a nice underlying subtle bitterness - could sit and drink this all day - good session material. Clean mouthfeel. Solid.
