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.

12oz can pours dark brown with light edges and 2 finger offwhite head. Nose has nutty espresso, cpffee bean, light vanila, a touch of cacao. Taste is similar, medium light body, light roast, nutty coffee and hints of chocolate. Finish continues the palate, almond, coffee bean, darl nuts. Enjoyable.

CBC Yellow Session. Keg. Almost clear amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Caramel malts, trace of cardboard. Modest tangy fruits Light dry finish. Passable but disappointing.

Gurthnar (2763) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 10, 2015
Can from Amersin. This beer lives up to everything it declares about itself. Rich malty aroma, chocolate, plums, roasted notes. Slight tobacco. Clear dark brown colour. Only flaw in this beer is cosmetic, quickly disappearing head. But the beer remains easily drinkable, indeed silky mouthfeel. Lots of malty complexity going on, chocolate, caramel, biscuity, dark malts. And this all while remaining at a session level both in ABV and flavour intensity - not overwhelming. Very good.

asheft (2684) - 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 (14) - 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. I’m very impressed with this one, and can’t wait to get my hands on more of Cigar City’s offerings.

probstblueribbon (3248) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
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.
