Serving Glass: Poured from bottle into pint-like glass. Appearance: Rich chocolate brown with a slight reddish cast. Moderate sized tan head with very slight lacing. Aroma: Caramel, chocolate, oats and some coffee and nuts. Taste: Heavily roasted for a Brown, with lots of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Slight oat and English-style hops. Palate: Moderate carbonation, medium creamy body, semi-dry finish. Overall: Delicious ale even if it is almost more of an Oatmeal Stout than a Brown Ale.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Pours a very dark brown with a small brown head without noticeable carbonation. A very brown ale indeed. The aroma contains molasses and nut, a hazelnut aroma. The smell is also heavily malty, making for a rich aroma well appreciated. The taste is a dark and sweet malt that tastes like coffee. If you think of this beers origins you can imagine a hearty cigar tobacco leaf taste. It is thick tasting with a fair share of hops to interfere with the alt. Palate is heavier than your usual ale but not overly sweet or sticky. Its a decent gimmick ale and stands out in the weak Florida brewing locale.

(swingtop courtesy of HOPSHUNTER, sampled 4/1/10). Dark brown color with ruby hue. Medium tan head, which is mostly diminishing. Moderate toast malt aroma. Flavor of the same, with light caramel. Avg duration. Smooth finish. Thin/slick texture. Soft carbonation. Spare lacing.

Medium to dark brown with a healthy tan head. Aroma is on the fruity side, but the flavor reveals a whole different story of complexity. Cardboard and lightly toasted nuts, old-tasting, old multigrain bread. a little bit of rye bread. Light-bodied and smooth, rather dry for the style. It makes sense that they used oats, I believe I have recognized some of these flavors before in brews that utilize moderately-toasted oats.

A little disapointment. OK smell and a nice brown colour, but the taste is to small in my mouth.

djd07 (9748) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2012 Bottle at August tasting. Pours a dark brown dark amber with small frothy light tan head with spotty lacing. The aroma is a raisin malt and oatmeal. Medium bodied with a rich malt and caramel. Seems infected.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2011
12 oz bottle from Total Wine. Pours deep brown, nice tan head. this is a big flaviurful brown ale, lots of roasted malt. Unmistakeable cigar flavours and odd ESB-like yeasty flavour.

Scopey (12245) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2011
Bottle from Brewdog Bar Aberdeen. It pours hazy dark brown, with a very thin off-white head. The nose is very meaty (Bovril-like), milk chocolate, caramel and lots of vanilla. The taste is chocolate, caramel, vanilla, roasted malt, astringency, wood and liquorice, with a dry finish. The body is thin to medium (thinner than expected) and it has average, but harsh carbonation. Drinkable and decent flavour, just not outstanding.
