Super fizzy out of the bottle. Some cigar notes, as suggested. Glad to see Tampa broducing noteworthy beers. Added as part of a pick-a-six at Publix. I’ll give it an extra point for palate.

Dark mahogany body with crimson highlights when held to the light. Aromas include roast, brown bread, smoke, earth, nuts, leather. The flavor follows the aroma. Light to medium in body. Lingering hints of coffee and a hint of bitterness. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The dark brown pour had the look of cola, which was emphasized by the fizzy carbonation, and the short lived head which rose to no more than one finger thick. The aroma was that of a fine chocolate with a touch of cinnamon. The taste was less interesting than what the aroma hinted at. There was some chocolate in the taste and some coffee and toffee as well, but the body was a little thin to truly support the flavors. There was some vanilla and cinnamon in the finish, with a light aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BIF project 2. Appearance: deep dark brown, decent lacing. Aroma: muted aroma of dark chocolate, burnt sugar, roasted coffee beans. Taste: similar to aroma. Muted. Good flavor, just a bit light. A bit of a "smoke" thing going on with the aftertaste. Palate: good carbonation, weird lingering aftertaste. A bit astringent. Not bad, definitely not great.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Best brown I’ve had. Got it at 16 days old 12oz can. Bought it because I feel you can’t go wrong with cigar City. Correct. These guys get just about everything right. Dark brown almost porter color pour. Cocoa, toasted nuts, espresso...lots going on for a brown ale. Not too complex though. You could session this beer since its low on carbonation and high on taste AND...thank goodness, NOT another IPA which is so played out that its embarrassing.

Bottle. The pour is lighter brown. The aroma has a little funk to it so this one might have been an old one. The taste also has it, but good flavor. I guess I need a fresh bottle.

On tap at the Growler NYC. Dark brown body with reddish highlights beneath a tan head. Roasted malt, vanilla, and toffee nose. Richness continues with a malty, nutty taste. Hint of acidity. Smooth, velvety feel followed by some spice and chocolate notes on the end.
