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

Draft. Interesting. Overpowering charred flavor. Fairly crackly carbonation. Pretty dark brown nearly black color. I guess it actually does taste like a cigar... Not quite my cup of tea, err beer but you can discern some serious brewing here.

12 oz can. The pour is a darker muddy brown with a thicker light khaki colored head that becomes fizzy as it settles down. The aroma is a bit roasty. There is a light roasted malt and a touch of sweet chocolate, but it's a brown. There's not a lot happening. The flavor is a little better. It's a touch milky. Nice roast and a prominent chocolate that brings it together. The mouth feel is decently thick with a strange carbonation and a lingeringly roasty finish. This isn't a bad brown by any means. I love the light chocolate tendency here this is solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft 5/13/15 (Brick House Tavern-Tampa)-Pours brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, malt, coffee, and vanilla. Taste the same with some dark fruits coming in. This medium bodied brew is tasty as I am not a fan of Brown Ales.

Great, easy-drinking brown ale. There are a lot of roasted and coffee flavors mixed together, and it works well. It’s easy to imagine drinking a few of these on a cold night.

L’équilibre est tel dans cette bière qu’à part son effervescence plutôt faible, je n’ai que de bons mots. Les ingrédients sont agencés de façon si harmonieuse que rien ne prend trop de place. Très bonne petite canette reçue en cadeau...

Pours a brown from a can. Chocolate notes but not a lot of heavy maltiness. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
