Notes/Commercial Description:
This rich brown ale is redolent with Cuban-style roasted espresso beans, sweet caramel and toffee and hints of dry nuttiness. Cuban Espresso is a popular drink in the Cigar City of Tampa owing to its many Sicilian and Cuban immigrants. The beans for Cubano-Style Espresso Brown Ale are roasted locally by Mazzaro's Italian Market and Deli in St. Petersburg to our exact specifications.

Can thanks the Reginald. Canned 6/19/14. Hecho a mano 371

Light brown / dark amber body with a large tan brown head that fades and that has some retention. 3.75/5

Aroma is very good - chocolate, espresso, vanilla, malty sweetness. 4.75/5

Flavor is a little underwhelming after the aroma but would still be one of my favorite brown ales. Short finish. Wouldn't be able to pick out the added ingredients if it weren't obvious from the aroma but the flavor is still nice. 4/5

Body as expected for the style. 4/5

Overall a very good brown ale but I wouldn't hunt this one down unless you are seeking the great aroma. Also interesting that the coffee is very mild despite the can describing it as dominating. 4/5
