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.

750ml bottle at Rollin’ Oats. Pours a mahogany brown with a decent-sized beige head that leaves spots of foam for a while. Aroma is very artificial-spice - like a holiday Glade plug-in. Flavor fares a little better - winter spices, cinnamon, a little raisin in the finish. Definitely over-spiced, but the aroma is the biggest culprit.

wedgie9 (2633) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Tasted on 8/31/13 from a bottle. Pours light cola brown with an average tan head that leaves thin lace. The nose is dominated by cardamom and spices with some caramel malt. The flavor has a bit more malt depth with an added cocoa nib note with the caramel malt, and a ton of spices providing some bitterness. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long spiced finish.

Too much in the spice dept. Tastes like mulled brown ale. Throw a spice bag with all those holiday spices in a base brown ale. Not easy to drink.

hopscotch (10612) - 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!

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, 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.

phaleslu (9384) - 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.

Light, water profile is a little chemical. Luckily the spices are good. Unfortunately, the spices are weakening the flavor and aroma.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2013
pours brown with a thin tan head. aroma is very spicy...sprucey...almost antispetic in a faint way. flavor follows suit...spicy and a bit muddled...cant make out much but it seems antiseptic. mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and spiced.
