32 oz growler from GoT. Deep mahogany brown with a small light tan head. Rich aroma of coffee, roasted hazelnuts, chocolate and biscuit dough. Flavor is some sweet toasty malt with a medium coffee acidity and very low bitterness. Medium body with mild carbonation and a smooth feel. I’m pretty amazed, this beer packs so much flavor into a 5.5% avb beer and isn’t too sweet. Thanks to GoT for this treat.

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Appearance: Dispenses a dark brown body with a modestly-sized, dark beige head. Smell: Roasty, toasty dark malts with notes of cocoa powder, fresh-from-the-oven nuts, dark caramel. Thin hints of espresso and blended pipe tobacco. Taste: All of the dark brown maltiness you’d expect, particularly if you’ve had any of their other brown ales. Sweetish tastes of cocoa-coated, oven-roasted nuts and caramel paired with a subtler hint of espresso beans. Small touch of dark fruitiness. Slight tobacco accents. A bit more of the coffee character comes through on the finish, as the tastes and body slacken to allow it to come across a bit more clearly. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Well-balanced and fairly tasty. Cigar City is really bucking the old adage "if you’ve had one brown ale you’ve had’m all!"

32oz Growler. Lots going on. Lots of coffee beans. Very distant jalapeño . Flavor of mocha, big chocolate. Lots of coffee. Light bodied. Too much going on to describe. So GOOD.

aracauna (3130) - Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Big coffee aroma. No. Huge coffee aroma. A touch on the ashy side. Clear reddish brown. Lingering bitterness in the finish from the coffee. A little too thin. Basically iced coffee with beer in it. Not bad, though.

Tmoney99 (10958) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Draft sample at Cigar City. Poured a clear brown color with an average creamy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and dark coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted cuban coffee sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout complex brew.
