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...

Probada en Top Hops, Lower East Side, New York. Como casi todo lo que he probado de Cigar City, esta Brown Ale esta por encima de los standares. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cigar City’s brown ale, not sure it is the beer or my taste buds, tasted ok, but I just not sure the brown ale is for me, second time with brown ale and did care for either in the long run

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2015 Can at Brickmakera Vienna. Molasses dried fruit. A little too one dimensionally sweet. Like a good quality malt extract or Kvas or something. A touch of cocoa. Overall too sweet.

A very nice Brown ale. This can be and often is a boring style. This is a good one. Nice sweet molasses and dried fruit aromas. Some fresh roasted nuts in the flavours...more nice sweetness.

Can from Florida brought by my coworker. Poured into a British pint. Appearance is a deep dark brown with a slight head. Fragrances of malt are heavy. Tastes comes in light at first with a bit of a roasted note then middle note comes in blunt with a thick malty roast then dissapates into roast again. Nice brown ale too bad we don’t get it here in Texas.

jcr (2365) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Can. Hazy brown body with a frothy, off-white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain, light roast, cola, ash, wood, tobacco. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/chalky texture, lively carbonation. Taste of cola, caramel, roast, light molasses and a light astringent bitterness in the finish. Slick oatmeal followed by a chalky coating on the back of the tongue. Disappointing.
