On tap @ Cigar City. Pours watery deep amber brown with thin creamy off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma is rich roasty malt, a hint of caramel. Blindfolded I’d call this a porter. Taste is roasty caramel malt, paired with a thin body, solid depth of roast throughout, lots of leather and oak in a relatively thin body. Does make me want a cigar as well, so it has that going for it.

Tasted this one from a can. Very dark brown. Nose was sweet but taste is full of malt and caramel with bitter hops at the end. Finish was a little sweet for me. 5.5% alcohol. Did not have this with a cigar but should have. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

COD 1/26/16. Dark brown pour that is also clear. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. Quite outstanding rich nose of toffee, caramel, tobacco and light chocolate over a rich malt base. A slight nut bread aspect is also present. Light medium body that is smooth in texture. Superb carbonation with an effervescent middle and a prickly finish. The flavor profile is quite good. Intensity is moderate, complexity is high (but not well separated) and balance is world class. The flavors of the nose are present, but you really have to concentrate to discern each from the blended flavor. The middle hints at bitterness and also sweetness. From the middle on, hints of dark fruit emerge as does a surprising subtle tartness that adds a bit of crispness. The finish is a slow fade of the blended flavor.

Red-brown color with foam ring. Light fruity, yet malty nose. Sticky and mighty malty taste. Calm and malty aftertaste.

anstei (1014) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle. Dried prunes, pretty brown, feels boozy but it isn’t. Short finish, slightly watery, which is not unexpected from the ABV but odd after the flavourful nose.

shigadeyo (3630) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Aroma has aromas of milk chocolate, roasted nuts, coffee and brown sugar; auburn brown color with a fleeting beige crown; creamed coffee roastiness and toffee with some chocolate, nuttiness, and hints of molasses, a bit fruity tobacco in the middle and an earthy/herbal hops characteristics; medium body, very smooth and soft mouthfeel; solid brown ale that’s quite tasty and hits the spot right now... 12 fl oz can.

ARH (1112) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2016
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is a mellow, brewed latte and nuts that turns to a very light tobacco late. The beer pours a brilliant, dark and rich copper brown with an oily appearance and an off white, thick film head that has good retention and lace. The taste is a medium sweet and medium light bitter. The texture is slick with a thin creamy / foam carbonation and a medium light body. The flavor is a mild latte and nutty with a smooth malty finish toned by caramel that turns to coffee with a touch of grass and tobacco. It’s slightly dry with an aftertaste of light tobacco and nuts, as well as a light caramel.

Poured from 12 oz can. Pours rich brown with a white head. Aroma is toasted malt with chocolate and dark fruit. Flavor is toasted malt, caramel, chocolate, coffee and a dry nutty malty finish. Very smooth. Fantastic brown ale.
