can. deep brown with one finger head. thick molasses and chocolate with a hint of nuts as well. almost reminds me of a really easy drinking stout. this is well constructed.

Molasses flavor is a bit strong for my taste, but other than that, this is a good brown ale

slowrunner77 (5804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2014
"nice for the style, but under average for the brewer. make sense? nice rich malty, almost nutty sweet aroma. the flavor has a little more to it than most 5% beers. more sweet than anything else, but a little bit of roast and hops in there as well. good brown."

miquelcrush (1400) - Granollers, SPAIN - SEP 17, 2014
Molt bona cervesa, predomina la xocolata i el sucre morè, però a la vegada és molt facil de beure. Muy buena cerveza, predomina el chocolate y el azúcar moreno, pero a la vez es muy fácil de beber.

BiereLuc (928) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
Brune aux reflets rubis. Nez de grains rôtis / café doux. En bouche, des notes terreuse de noix donnent le ton alors qu’un arrière-goût de café s’installe sournoisement pour nous accompagner jusqu’à la fin de la canette. Pendant ce temps, un peu de chocolat noir (non sucré) s’étale sur les flancs. Le liquide est doux, assez pétillant, relativement mince, mais très goûteux. Du début à la fin en passant par le milieu. Comme Brown Ale, c’est assez exemplaire merci.

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

bigda83 (215) - Jamestown, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2014
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.

Can into a tulip. Deep brown with a slight orange tinge. Almost no head. Chocolate, some sweet molasses. Slight dry bitterness, quite sweet. Very smooth, medium heavy body. Lightly effervescent. Very nice, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

maxwelldeux (3688) - 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.
