Dark brown pour with a one finger sand colored head. Head dissipates after a few moments into a wispy accumulation on the top of the liquid. There is a surprising bit of yeast on the nose. This is followed by burnt toast, some roasted malt, and earthy characteristics. Smells a little more brash than your typical brown ale. Flavor is complex and satisfying. Strong roasted characteristics, toffee, caramel candies, and a lingering bitterness that keeps everything in balance. The beer is smooth and luxurious on the palate with just a hint of prickly carbonation. This is a bold, complex take on a brown ale. Well done Cigar City. I’m really enjoying this one.

Fresh can. Pours brown with a bit of tan head. Aroma is tobacco, earth, hay. Taste is roasted malt, some depth from the oats, a bit of malt sweetness. Not getting too much to pull from this one. Smooth, but forgettable.

Got this as an extra from Fritz123. thanks buddy. Pours out of a can with a 1/2 thick head that disappears almost instantly. No lacing with very light carbonation. The nose is oakey, vanilla, and some roasted malt. Tastes pretty much what the nose is giving me except with some light nutiness. This is not a big beer but nice in its subtleties.
