COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

brokensail (10785) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Light brown/dark amber pour with a khaki head. Big spice aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Sweet fruit esters, a nice toasted malt nose, and chocolate. The flavor has a touch of butter to it, unfortunately. Otherwise it’s alright. Spicy notes of nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. Some sweet dark fruit, chocolate, toast, and toffee.

Bottle shared by Nate. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy spices, dates and figs with cookie and caramel malt. Flavor is malt and spice dominant, dark fruits, no hops and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

hopscotch (9089) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Bottle... Clear dark-amber pour with no head. Crazy spiciness in the aroma. Spice-rack blend of winter spices, toastiness and deep brown malts. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced and spicy, like a gingerbread cookie. Short, crisp finish with minerals. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

GT2 (8366) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
750mL thanks to nmann08. Pours a clear, deep ruby looking black in the glass. Decent foam. Nose is very rancid diacetyl, one of the worst I’ve encountered. Spoiled dairy abounds while some pumpernickel bread and pumpkin spice try to come through as the intended. In taste there is brown sugar, whole grain crust, typical CCB lemon acid, pumpernickel. Palate is slick, rancid old dairy. An extreme case of diacetyl.

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with tan head. Nose and taste of all spice, hot cinnamon, cardamom, malt, nutmeg, roast pumpkin, squash, mint leaves and mixed spices. A bit too spice forward. Medium body.

phaleslu (6397) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2013
750 ml bottle from Homer321- thanks again, Sean! Pours a hazy mahogany with a big, rocky beige head. It gushed a bit when opened. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, toast, dust, nuts, chocolate, and dark fruit. Flavor is exactly the same. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a dry, spicy mouthfeel. Overcarbonated but not bad.

BVery (6096) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 25, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bomber. Brown pour with a beige head. Little bit of chili pepper on the nose. Ginger and spice. Pretty tasty! Underrated I think.

BBB63 (6016) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle via Hopscotch and served in my Duvel snifter: Pours a medium brown with some reddish highlights topped by a fading off-white head and spotty lace. Heavy spices on the nose of brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger... sort of like a "pumpkin ale". Moderate roasted, tobacco and bready brown malts as well with a hint of piney hops. The taste is more of the same, heavy spices over a semi-sweet brown malt base with just a hint of herbal and piney hop bitterness. The mouth feel is smooth and ashy. The 1st glass was nice but really this is beer to be shared since the spice notes become too much after awhile. Good thing is it is lower in alcohol so more of a session drinker if not for the spices.
