Thanks to my buddy Brett in FL for sending. We cant get this in TX, and it drives me crazy.

A: Chocolate Brown pour into a dogfish head tulip glass. About 1.5 fingers of head tht quickly dissapated with a little tan lacing

S: Brown sugar, oats, caramel, tobacco, and a hint of nuttiness. I definetely thought of brown sugar oatmeal

T: This has some nice complexity- the oatmeal caries through, it has some really nice caramel nutiness, and just a little bit of musty flavor. Its obvious and impressive that the brewer had in mind a great beer to pair with a great cigar- the tobacco flavors get your palate reved up for a stogie.

M: Nice thickness to this one- medium bodied and consistent all the way down.

D: Highly drinkable, sessionable brown solid ale. Another great creation from the good folks at CCB.

My God I thought I was in a cigar shop, not picking this brew but picking which edition of this particular brew it is to review on this site! I'm sure that there are as many brews to pick as cigars in the Cigar City but best I can do is read the bottle and then guess. Anyways this is a raved Cigar City that I spotted, so lets give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a great waft of roasted malts and chocolate and.... No I'm done.... I have had it before and sipped it, now as I rate it, for a brown ale, who beats it?

Picked up a sixer to have with some friends at the corner market.

A- Pours a ruddy dark brown with some cloudy garnet edges. Gives off a nice large bubbled 1.5" tan head that swells, then ebbs to a thin tan cap with a couple of large bubbles popping here and there. I really noticed the slight cloudy appearance to the parts that are not totally void of color.

S- There's a rich slight sweetness in the front that is quickly replaced with some light woody, coffee bitter notes. That slight sweetness weaves throughout, like candied raisins (do those even exist) or something. Bottom line, it smells delicious.

T- Smooth creamy milk chocolate notes have a slight edge over some of the bitter coffee notes, but the balance is really noticeable between the two. there are some sweet raisiny hints in there too Once again, delicious.

M- Like the flavors, smooth & creamy. There is almost a silkiness to it. The carbonation is present, appreciated, and not distracting at all. This is listed in BA as an Oatmeal brown, but I do not see anything on the packaging stating as such, but it does have the creamy mouthfeel of oatmeal for sure.

D- I really think that this is the best brown ale I have had to date. Looks great, smells great, taste & feels delicious. I could easily drink several of these (I haven't yet). I feel that this style is a classic style, but I never get really "wowed" by any. This one does.
