Fratto (2654) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle from my favorite bastardization of two people: drowland/Cavie. Brown pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is hops, roasted malts, and coffee. Taste is a little roasted, nuts, spinach, and some bitterness at the end.

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - DEC 26, 2010
Pours clear chestnut brown with a small light brown head. Aroma is doughey yeast, caramel, hints of coffee, roasted walnuts, cooked carrots, sweet malts. There is a grainy sweetness as from crushed, unmashed malts and fresh boiled wort. The taste has that same vegetable characteristic, which is propably from the yeast. The malts are nutty, caramel, bready and a bit roasted. Some sourness comes too every once in a while, canít really place it anywhere. The hops are mainly for bitterness, as it only shines though in the after taste along with a bit of roasted nuttiness. Very drinkable, but the vegetable-feeling is just weired and keeps the rating down a bit. But a nice beer anyway.

Butters (3848) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Pretty tasty brown. Roasty, and a little vegetal, but i could see how this would pair nicely with a cigar.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2011 Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip. Pours a deep mahogany brown with a small 1/2 finger greyish-brown head. Decent lacing. Smell: Roasted malt with semisweet chocolate, coffee and a faint hint of pineapple from the hops and just a touch of mustiness. Taste: Roasted malt and dark bread up front followed by caramel, nuts and grains in the middle then a nice hoppy bite at the finish. Aftertaste is burnt toast. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Goes down very smooth. Drinkability: Very high drinkability. You could knock back a few of these without any trouble. Overall: This is an excellent American Brown Ale. Iím yet to be disappointed with Cigar City. This is one of the best brown ales Iíve had. Itís typically not one of my favorite styles, but Iíll be buying more of this soon.
