Bottle. Deep mahogany in color with a medium sized off white head. Head fades fairly quick. Aroma contains caramel and oats. Slight fruitiness is present, too, that seems to lend a sour element to the aroma. Taste is creamy, with oats, and slightly nutty. That slightly sour element is present towards the beginning of each sip, but quickly fades. Too light in body and almost a bit watery.

On tap @ Ravenous Pig. Chestnut pour produced a small tan head that left a spot or two of lacing. Aroma and flavors show cocoa, oats, and caramel...really well done brown ale but nothing terribly exciting.

Compliments tothe ole Bootlegger himself, DrBayern! Bought this at Whole Foods in Tampa and made it back to NC without drinking all of it! Quite a feat for him! Pours a dark brown, with an off white head that laces nicely and hangs on to the top of the beer, floating like a lily pad! Aroma is malty. It was a bit too cool to start with, so I had to let it warm some. A great choice! The head came back somewhat, the taste was malty, and smooth on the palate! Really felt nice in my mouth. A slight bite on the back side. Only thing that would have made this better is if DrBayern had brought me back a really nice hand rolled stogie to chew on while I enjoyed this nectar!

On tap at brewery, I thought this was a good offering, it pours a browny colour, light head, roasty malts I would say, finish almost nutty, didn’t notice the oatmeal but good flavour

I really enjoyed this one. Good, toasty malt on the nose and palate. Slowly diminishing head, and layers of complex and toasty malts. Browns are not usually my favorite, but I’ll definitely have this one again.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2012 Bottle. Re-rate. Poured with a nice off white head that carried a slight aroma of malt and coffee with some qualities of slight tannins and caramel and chocolate. Poured a nice brown, not too dark or light. Flavor was heavy malt and coffee all the way, with a slight nutty quality to it. Touches of caramel and chocolate round out the flavor nicely. A great brown ale and base beer which makes all of CCBs other brown ales superb.

Floback (539) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle from Decanted, a small beer/wine store here in Naples, FL. Pours an almost-viscous Aromatic notes of walnut and toffee in the nose. Sour, almost sweet hints of plum, subtle yeast, and candy upfront with an overall malty, bready backbone. I detected a well balanced note of resinous hops in the finish. Full and round mouthfeel with medium carbonation. All-around, this brew is complex and satisfying.

Medium brown with a tan head. Nose is big cocoa & toasty malt, mslightly milky sweeness and something slightly off-putting - I don’t know how to describe it other than dusty. Flavor is cocoa, really nice caramel with some dark fruit/cherry notes, maybe a bit of tobacco. Sweet in the finish - hops are there but not enough to balance it out. Still, a very nice example of brown ale, in line w alesmith nautical nut brown.

Bottle thanks to Solan. Poured a dark body with nice head. Aroma is slightly sweet. Nice and robust tone to it and a smooth finish.
