Growler/Medicine bottle thanks to Ibrew2or3. Pours a wonderful black color with a medium light brown/beige head. The aroma is sweet chocolates, toasted malts, dust. The flavor is very nice; sweet nutty chocolates, smooth toasted malts, not really too sweet but some sweeter caramel and milky flavors are there. A enjoyable example of the style.

Growler. Courtesy of McDiddyPop on BA. Pours a nice brown color with the slightest tinge of red to it. Great foamy tan head. The aroma is great with notes of dark malt, subtle sweetness, cocoa, and some nutty smell I can’t put my finger on. The taste follows the aroma as in the first flavor is the roasted malt balanced with some sweetness. Very well balanced. Mouthfeel is medium.

On tap at Cigar City Brewery, pours a dark brown, aroma of sweetness and roasted malt, with a touch of hops. Long lasting lacing, on top of medium sweetness. I think this is a great brown and overall excellent beer.

Aroma of creamy chocolate amd caramel and some quality malting,there was a cookie made up of chocolate and caramel that smelled much like this. Flavor a bit tepid, again creamy combo of chocolate caramel and eonugh hopping so its not real sweet,texture nearly perfect. Poured from a fresh growler just delivered today. Beautiful

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Draft at Ginger Man NYC. Pours a deep brown with ruby at the edges. Nose is cocoa, raw grain and sweet roasted malts. On taste, more cocoa, no real coffee notes to speak of. Very robust and refined. Probably the best brown ale I’ve had in a long time.
