Poured a brownish body with two finger offwhite head that stuck around and left some lace. Aroma hit several minor notes of caramel, bitter chocolate, toffee, coffee, some roasted malts, touchs of other sugar sweetness and a tad of grainy hops or breadiness (something akin to those) but nothing spectacular. Taste of the beer is more of the same. While it is medium bodied and easy to drink and has a drying sensation on the finish, there is nothing spectacular about the beer. There is a balance of sweet malts and dry, roasted malts as well as a touch of hops but I really can't say this beer is too sweet or has a peculiar dryness/breadiness/hopiness to it to classify it as something else. A good beer but one, that for me at least, is just slightly under par with some other, better, brown ales/oatmeal stouts (which I really didn't get any taste or feel of oats although it would explain the smoothness of the beer).

12 oz bottle poured into Newcastle Geordie Schooner glass

A - Pours with a thin layer of head that dissipates quickly. A ring of bubbles lasts. Some lacing. Beer is a nice burnt copper color.

S - Wonderful aroma of vanilla and "cereal grain" malt character.

T - Very malt forward. Maybe a little on the husky side, but the darker malts push through. Heavy malt in the aftertaste. Some fruitiness, presumably from esters. A bit of a tanginess in the finish.

M - Nice and soft up front. Nice dryness in the aftertaste. Some oily coating, too. Enjoyable.

O - Glad I tried this. Thanks to hdelavega for this bottle. This is definitely more of a "malt" beer than I tend to prefer, but it still had great drinkability. Wouldn't be my go to beer, but I hope to have it again. I bet it would be GREAT with pub food and strong cheese. Oh man, is it lunchtime?

Had this beer on tap. Smooth finish. The chocolate and the roasted components are very well balanced. You can taste the oats in the after taste. The color is okay and had a decent "head" to it. Overall it's pretty good. Tastes great. So far Cigar City hasn't failed to impress.
