TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Numerous bottles and on draft at CC in October 2010. Hazelnut brown with a small tannish head. Nose is lightly nutty, some sweetness, light lactose like aromas, oats, light hops. Flavor is similar, fairly well balanced. hollardustin (330) - Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Pours a dark reddish brown with small white head. Aroma is dark fruit, raisins, and brown sugar. Taste is malty with notes of dark chocolate, raisins, and just a hint of coffee on the back end. Nice smooth, velvety mouthfeel with soft carbonation. I’ve had better brown ales, but this one is pretty good. zvikar (6575) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2012

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 (627) - 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 (7675) - 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. Joakgust (1502) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 5, 2012
Bottle, 75 cl - Red Brown beer with a large disappearing beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of coke, ginger, butter, nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is malty with notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee and hazelnuts. Rather thin bodied but highly enjoyable. Very nice session beer. IluvatarMilan (309) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
