Bottle. The pour was a hazy dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown creamy head that lasted a very long time, finally reducing to a thin cap and a medium collar which in turn did produce some good sticky lacing. The aroma was of a toasted cereal malt and a leathery yeast with notes of milk chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel, molasses and a bit of oats. The taste was extremely malty and a tad sweet with hints of caramel and molasses early on, and then became rather creamy and a little bitter with notes of chocolate and coffee towards the end. The flavor hung on for a good long duration letting an espresso mocha taste settle in wonderfully on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was medium in body with a light creamy robust texture and a mild to medium carbonation. Overall a brew that is an exquisite representation of this style, with the oats giving it a nice smooth, creamy feel and a great drinkability. Most definitely one of the best Brown Ale’s I have tasted to date...

Can at home while visiting Jacksonville. Pours a dark teddy brown with a thin tan head. Malt loaf, fruit cake caramel aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Lots of treacle, caramel cake, some dark fruit, hint of lemon... Sticky, but decent. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to stout glass. Pour is dark clear brown with a decent white head. Aroma is malt and some chocolate with a bit of sweetness. The taste is malt with an oatmeal backbone. There's coffee and chocolate as well. It's nicely balanced. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can (Lopez smuggled these outta the Sunshine State and back to the City of Big Shoulders... nice one, brother!). Pours a deep chestnut brown with a generous, off-white head, excellent retention and lacing. Nose is toasty and nutty, caramel, coffee, bakers chocolate. Mouth is medium bodied mildly bittersweet, pretty much all the elements in the nose. Cigar City could do a lot worse than to distribute in the Midwest... this stuff would fly off shelves. Thanks again Lopez!
