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

rivertranced (25) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 6, 2012
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.

asheft (2673) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
On tap at Rattle and Hum, NYC. Chocolatey aroma with a blend of citrusy hops, dried fruit, and raspberries. Hazy mahogany under a tan collar. Sweet hazelnut flavour with dry nuts and dried fruit. Moderate bitterness and moderate doughnut shop coffee accent. Medium light body, moderate carbonation, almost crisp.

Jshupka (13) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
355ml can brought to me from Florida. Pours a deep, mahogany brown with a full and aggressive head. Nose is weak, but has some chocolate, roasted malts, and caramel. Taste is caramel, toffee, roasted malts, wood. Almost tastes barrel aged. Clean palate with little aftertaste, but enough to remind you how great it was. A wonderful example of a brown ale. Iím very impressed with this one, and canít wait to get my hands on more of Cigar Cityís offerings.

Crowler from the brewery via Christine (thanks!). Deep brown with a thin tan head. Richly nutty and a bit fruity, chocolate, roasted malt, a touch watery, lightly sweet with limited bitterness. Not bad.
