This poured a medium to darker brown color with a light beige head. Aroma was of brown malt, light nuts and light chocolate. Flavor was very smooth, light silky smooth chocolate and brown malts. Not one of my favorite beers, but very well done for the style.

12 oz bottle courtesy of trade with manny57. Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a big khaki head that has good retention and plenty of lacing. The aroma is strong with anise, dark roasted malts and lightly biter hops. The flavor is earthy with sweet roasted malts, nuts, licorice, molasses and blackened grains. The palate is silky smooth with lively carbonation. The finish is long with lingering licorice. Overall: A very impressive brew, and yes, I believe this would pair well with a good cigar.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - NOV 17, 2010
12 oz bottle from tarheels86. Mahogany brown with a very small light tan head that quickly fades to a ring. Aroma of sweet dark fruit, coffee, nuts and wood. The flavor is nuts, chocolate and coffee, malty but not too sweet and a very light bitterness for balance. Medium body with mild carbonation and a smooth, soft mouth feel. Not your average Brown ale, lots of unique malt flavors that blend well in this one.

Thanks smith4498. Pours a soft coppery brown with one finger of creamy light tan head. Nose is sweet and candy-ish, notes of caramel and spice with a mild nuttiness. Flavor is nice and malty, caramelly sweetness nicely balanced by a toasted nutty character. Crisp spicy hops. Palate is crisp with a mild hop bite and medium body.

Bottle in trade with changeup45. Thanks Garry! Pours a deep, dark brown with a thin white head. Not much aroma, but what is there is a faint, nutty, malty smell. The oatmeal is noticeable on the palate, much more body than most brown ales. Nice carbonation with a nice malty flavor. The lingering malty aftertaste is excellent. My first tasting from CCB is a good one!

Poured from a 12oz bottle from Manny57, thanks Ryan. Pours a dark brown with a healthy off-white head. Smells of oatmeal, roasted malts. Tastes of tobacco and roasted nuts.

mansquito (3338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Key Food, Brooklyn 6-pack ($12.50): Pours a darkish, mud brown color with a tan head. Aroma is of oatmeal, malts, and coffee. Taste has got some hop bitterness, but that is in the background. In the foreground there are a ton of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, oatmeal, and coffee. Medium bodied. A very complex brown ale that deviates from the norm of the style by many degrees. A unique brown ale, that is amongst the best I’ve had in the style.
