A hearty brown ale that benefits from the silky mouthfeel provided by oatmeal, pairs great with Cigars.

Poured from bottle into belgian glass. Aroma lacked the malty, rich sweetness of the style. No diacetyl. Appearance: nice dark brown color, poured with little head. Little bit of ruby if you hold it up to the light. Taste: nice, malty flavor, with a little toast. Balanced bitterness, but not really hoppy. Not really picking up fruity esters. Palate: Medium-full body, nice viscocity (from the oatmeal?). Moderate carbonation. Overall: a pretty good example of the style. Very nice flavor, would go very well with a hearty meal, or a cigar as they say.

May 1, 2015. Tap at CBC 2015.
Clear amber brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is malty with biscuits, nuts, toffee, dark sugars, coffee notes and hints of red apples. Taste is light sweet, light bitter with a nutty and biscuity finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation.

Probada en Top Hops, Lower East Side, New York. Como casi todo lo que he probado de Cigar City, esta Brown Ale esta por encima de los standares. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cigar City’s brown ale, not sure it is the beer or my taste buds, tasted ok, but I just not sure the brown ale is for me, second time with brown ale and did care for either in the long run

northropfrye (2811) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 24, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2015 Can at Brickmakera Vienna. Molasses dried fruit. A little too one dimensionally sweet. Like a good quality malt extract or Kvas or something. A touch of cocoa. Overall too sweet.

A very nice Brown ale. This can be and often is a boring style. This is a good one. Nice sweet molasses and dried fruit aromas. Some fresh roasted nuts in the flavours...more nice sweetness.

Good brown ale. Oftly soft palate....oatmeal perhaps? Somewhat 1 dimensional. Not Sam Smith, better than most micros.

Can from Florida brought by my coworker. Poured into a British pint. Appearance is a deep dark brown with a slight head. Fragrances of malt are heavy. Tastes comes in light at first with a bit of a roasted note then middle note comes in blunt with a thick malty roast then dissapates into roast again. Nice brown ale too bad we don’t get it here in Texas.
