KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2012
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 Ales I have tasted to date...

TET (2884) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2017
A reddish dark brown beer, a head is medium, dense and light beige. Taste has breadyness, sweetness of syrup, some chocolate. Taste has bread, some chocolate, smooth maltyness, also some bitterness. Medium bodied, greatly fluffy. This style isnt my favourite, but this is good. The glass was empty too soon.

jbethea (20) - Summerfield, Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2017
Exactly as it claims- hints of toffee, caramel and espresso. More flavor than you would ever expect from a brown ale. Another CC staple. Sad the company is selling out to corporate ovelords. The new American Dream- create something awesome and special and then incorporate the shit out if it. Lets hope the awesome brews dont get lost on their quest to reach more people who probably dont give a shit. Drink local, be happy.

From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Watching Los Soprano 5x06. Notes between smoke and wood that reminds a cigar (maybe a suggestion from the name?) And some nuts. Nice fullfilling body and bitter finish
