UPDATED: FEB 15, 2015 12oz can poured into Styrofoam hotel coffee cup. Clear deep brown with thin tan head. Aroma is toasted malts, nuts, dark fruits, coffee, brown bread, and toffee. Taste is light malt sweetness including caramel, toasted bread, nuts, and a new chocolate note. Some roasted malt, espresso, and tobacco bitterness. Medium body, great mouth-filling creamy texture, moderate carbonation, and a drying roasty finish.

Tap at Magic Rock’s Rainbow Project launch. Dark brown with amber hints. Small off-white head. Burnt and roasted malty flavours throughout. Slight red fruity undercurrent. Knowing its reputation I kept waiting for this to take off, but it never really did. Decent enough brown though.

Can from a trad with Weezel, thanks Mike. Pours a light cola colour, off tan head, a couple flecks of lacing. Nose is spot on yo style, malty, sweet, but a touch of difference in that there is a touch of vanilla and cinnamon. Tastes sweet, malty and caramel. Really easy going, thin mouthfeel. Tasty.

Probada en Top Hops, Lower East Side, New York. Como casi todo lo que he probado de Cigar City, esta Brown Ale esta por encima de los standares.

Cigar City’s brown ale, not sure it is the beer or my taste buds, tasted ok, but I just not sure the brown ale is for me, second time with brown ale and did care for either in the long run
