One finger off white head that slowly dissipated. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Tastes as it smells but with some smoky flavor and maybe some oak. Much maltier than I would expect from your average brown. Medium/light body with smooth mouth feel. Taste of dark chocolate lingers on the palate. Probably one of the best browns I have tried. phishhheads (14) - walpole, USA - JAN 14, 2012
A good tasty beer. Nothing great but very solid. Very easy to drink and tasty. I wish cigar city distributed to mass. Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - JAN 11, 2012
On tap in the CCB taste room.
Dark brown, Almost a red hue, with minimal head. Intriguing burnt oatmeal and coffee aroma. Very smooth and tons of oatmeal and chocolate notes. Too thick to be a true brown, but an all around winner. larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 7, 2012
Big beige lasting head. Clear deep brown body with carbonation.
Earthy funky chocolatey aroma with roasty mealy notes. Dry-sweet
funky earthy chocolatey taste with nutty sugary roasty notes.
Mid-to-light body. Fizzy mouthfeel at the start, then flat
shortly afterwards. Dryish mealy chocolatey aftertaste with
burnt funky fruity notes. Very unusual, but with a kind of Cigar
City house yeast character. Nice and highly drinkable. (0.75l
bottle, wine monoopoly, Vika, Oslo.) bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2012
This beer pours a darl leathery brown. Head disapates very quickly. First sip tasted over carbonated, but as I drank and it warmed, it became much smoother. Aroma is nothing to write home about. Although this beer is smooth, it has a watery feel to it and lacks character. I love maduro cigars, I do not love Cigar City Maduro. Average at best.

Bottle, 75 cl - Red Brown beer with a large disappearing beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of coke, ginger, butter, nutmeg and cinnamon.
