Aroma is sweet and a bit roasty. Getting a little alcohol smell as well, nothing bad though. Taste provides more of the roastiness. Very smooth and complex. First beer by CC. (Don’t get it where I am from) quite impressed.

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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

0.355l can. Reddish dark brown body, light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, sour chherry and some smoke. Taste of chocolate, caramel, sour cherry and some grains. Suprisingly acidic for me. Overall it’s an OK beer.
