Draight at house of beer Orlando. Strong dark chocolate aroma with oatmeal notes. Dark reddish brown in color with a large light tan head. Flavor is nice and solid but nothing earth shattering which I should have expected for only 5.5%. nice lace. A non flawed very tasty oatmeal stout that I bet gets really good on all the offs with vanilla, maduro series etc.

Cigar City has arrived in Philadelphia area. Medium bodied, toasted malts, oatmeal, dark brown ale. It’s only my first taste of a Cigar City beer and I know why there is a buzz about the brewery.

Tap @ RnH - had this one right after the humidor version. Interesting to see the difference when you take away the woody cedar. Has more zest and spicy flavors. Clear,fresh flavor, though there are some odd chalky elements. Dark and roasted. finishes with some astringency.

My first Cigar City beer: tap at Rattle n’ Hum. Pours brown with a purple-red glow, dark but somewhat clear. Aroma has notes of brown sugar, dark roast coffee, and semisweet chocolate. Smoke flavors hit first and then linger, complementing the notes of chocolate malt, toasted almonds, and hops. Leathery body that remains slightly smoky throughout. Rich and roasty. Ok, I’m impressed.

Draft handbottle (or growler?) from Redlight Redlight as an extra via trade with smith4498- thanks again, Jason! Pours a dark brown, hazy but not opaque, with a small tan head that leaves some nice lacing in the glass. Aroma of nuts, oats, tobacco leaves, roasted malts, earthy hops, and a little coffee and chocolate. The flavor improves upon that, with roasted malts, nuts, oats, earthy hops, brown sugar, wet leaves, and wood. Light-medium bodied, with minimal carbonation (I did have this a few weeks after it was poured); smooth, with a dry and roasty finish. Good balance of sweet, roasty, and earthy in a leafy way. Dry finish, interesting for such a wet mouthfeel. Great brown ale- can’t wait to drink more from this brewery.

Pint at Rattle N Hum to warm up my palate for a day of Cigar City beers. Poured a deep brown with an orange glow and a small lasting creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, some earth notes, grassy hops and tobacco. Thinner bodied with softer carbonation. The flavor is dominated by chocolate and grains with a hint of tobacco. Probably one of the best brown ales I have ever had and really nice consiering it clocks in at just 5.5%.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 On tap at Cigar City takes NYC event at Rattle ’N’ Hum. Very dark brown,with whisp of head. only average mouthfeel is felt, maybe it is a tad over. Suitably carbonated. Cedar there too. A little toast,and chocolate malts. Good for its style, but of curse CC blows you away with their unique brews.
