Brown Ale with Spices

Artist and renaissance man, Evander Preston, carves out a unique presence in a world of sameness. Evander’s friends at Cigar City Brewing have brewed an exotic concoction based on his eccentric personality and style. The brew was a blend of flavors from far away lands. We know you will enjoy drinking our beer as much as we enjoyed brewing it. Evander’s studio and workshop is located at Pass-A-Grille, Florida.

Bottle shared at Olympen Friluft, July 2nd 2013. Clear brown body, small white head. Spicy aroma of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, toasted malt. Taste is sweet, with cinnamon, ginger, brown sugar, red fruits, dark chocolate. I feel this beer should have a christmas theme. Short bitterness, spicy and nutty finish.

Strong, spicy aroma with a dark pour and small head, complex and smoother than expected taste and lingering spice aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle as an extra from Newcigarz. Aroma is of a spiced, Christmas ale. Flavor was really clean with recognizable spices, although I won't pretend to know what they are...definitely some mole-type spices. Nice and drinkable. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by jcwatts, thanks John. Poured dark reddish chestnut brown body with almost no head. Aroma of chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, old honey, vanilla and some alcohol. Body is soft with almost no carbonation left. Flavor is the same as the aroma with chocolate up front followed by a combination of spices. Not bad but not great.
