jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Pours a cloudy brown with a tan head mostly dissipating. Nose is toffee and molasses. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is roasted malt, toffee and light molasses. Nicely balanced, neither sweet nor bitter. An above average brown ale that is a good companion to a ham and cheese sandwich on rye bread.

asheft (2667) - 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. Im very impressed with this one, and cant wait to get my hands on more of Cigar Citys 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.
