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.

From a can bought at World Market. Pour a coffee black with a thin tan head. Nose is chocolate, coffee, oats, malt. Taste is almost the nose with a lovable hoppiness. Ends with a slick mouth feel. I wish I had a 5 Vegas Maduro to pair. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours a cloudy brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, molasses and brown sugar. Taste follows the nose and is a tad sweet. Medium body, creamy, low carb, light finish. Very good.

Full-bodied roasted chocolate tasting beer. Dark and delicious. Cigar city excellent as usual!

maxwelldeux (3661) - Everett, Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Can at a bottle share. Pours a hazy brown color. Nose is slightly nutty with some slight caramel, though I find the aroma to be fairly light. Taste is lightly toasty and slightly nutty, and quite smooth. Not bad.

floydslip (173) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Deep mahogany beer with a rich creamy beige head. Nose of burnt nuts, dark caramel, and toast. Flavor is is closer to a porter than a brown ale with the primary flavors coming from toasted grain. Then some nutty flavors emerge, but they are masked by the roast. Finally, a bit of bitterness hits that lingers into the aftertaste. Good beer that was quite a bit better at the brewery than out of the can I’m drinking from.

I like this on tap but im not a fan of it in a can. Overall I’d say its a higher end brown ale

12-oz can. Thanks, M! Pours a cloudy medium ebony with a dense and creamy light tan head. Big sweet molasses and brown bread nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Brown bread and molasses mid palate. Mild finish. A little sweet, but very drinkable.
