A great brown. Chocolatey and full bodied. Caramel malt and oats. A spectacular example of a brown ale. Paired well with Hungarian pancakes.

Strong aroma of roasted malt and some chocolate. Nice brown head on an almost opaque brown. Extremely smooth and round mouth feel with a nice soft aftertaste.

Deep brown pour with a skimpy cap. Deep nose promises a great brown ale. And is. Deep brown sugar, pan fried pecans, a drizzle of cold coffee & rich malts define this brew. Not as innovative as Bellwood’s hop-infested Grizzly brown ale but a pretty good brew.

Very tasty silky smooth oatmeal wetness. Chocolate, caramel, nuttiness, and earthiness. Love this brown ale just might be my fav. Cheers!

3-year-old bottle. White lacing. Brown/redding image. Aroma is cedar; caramel; musty perfume. Taste is caramel; roasted chestnuts, peanuts, some velvet and blackcurrants. The finish is honey and dry and of red berry. Interesting and well-made brown ale.

Can at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours a dark teddy brown with a thin tan head. Malt loaf, fruit cake caramel aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Lots of treacle, caramel cake, some dark fruit, hint of lemon... Sticky, but decent. OK.

Bottle to stout glass. Pour is dark clear brown with a decent white head. Aroma is malt and some chocolate with a bit of sweetness. The taste is malt with an oatmeal backbone. There's coffee and chocolate as well. It's nicely balanced. Good stuff.

Can (Lopez smuggled these outta the Sunshine State and back to the City of Big Shoulders... nice one, brother!). Pours a deep chestnut brown with a generous, off-white head, excellent retention and lacing. Nose is toasty and nutty, caramel, coffee, bakers chocolate. Mouth is medium bodied mildly bittersweet, pretty much all the elements in the nose. Cigar City could do a lot worse than to distribute in the Midwest... this stuff would fly off shelves. Thanks again Lopez!
