Thanks to AbeFroman for sharing this one at NoSignsOfPain's birthday bottleshare hosted by mrbubbler.

Pours a clear brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, caramel, and some nutty aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a pretty good level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is easy to drink but nothing too exciting going on in my opinion.

[Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

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...

A-Typical brown ale look to it with tan head.

S-Nice nutty brown ale smell, toasted roasted malts...good smell.

T-Actually very thin ale with a dry finish....not my favorite from cigar city ive had plenty of other cigar city beers that are amazing but to me this one is just good but not great. Like other reviewers noted i get that burnt popcorn flavor halfway through my glass. The website says oatmeal brown but the bottle i have says nothing about oatmeal.

M-Light carbonation with a nice dry finish

O-Overall this is a good malty brown ale if you like bown ales(brown ales are not my favorite but for what it is it is a good beer) It is worth giving it a try if you never had it. Ive have yet to have a bad beer from cigar city.

Served in a pint glass

A - It is ruby brown with an inch of mocha head.

S - I get some chocolate notes, along with roasted malt. There is some toffee in there as well.

T - At first I got some tootsie roll. That gave way to some burnt popcorn. Then I got some bitter chocolate.

M - Medium to full.

O - It started out good. Then came that burnt popcorn taste. Maybe this is old. I'm not sure why I got that taste. I had better try another.

Pours a dark brown color. Very dark brown. A medium tan head that dissipates and leaves a small foam at the top. Good lacing. Smells... wow. Toffee, espresso, roasted nuts. One of the best aromas I've smelled on a beer in my life.
Tastes of nuts, caramel, a bit of coffee and a very slight taste of chocolate. A slight sweetness makes this very drinkable. Medium body, medium carbonation.

Cigar city's classic brown ale. Here in Miami where I live, this is a regular in any good craft beer store. It is also a regular in my refrigerator. It is sessionable and delicious.
