look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Medium colored brown. Clear. Moderate light tan colored head. Little lacing. Smell is wonderful: sweet, syrupy, light maple syrup, though its more like Aunt Jamima syrup than pure maple, but it works. However the taste is thin and bready. Maybe some caramel malt and little darker malt, but there is very little sweetness and no chocolate. Body is very thin, both for the style and the concept. Overall, an interesting, but not overly impressive beer.

Serving type: growler

Reviewing the Chocolate Chip Pancake Brown Ale from Cigar City Brewing out of Tampa, Florida.

Score: 95

Tap pour served in a Hunahpu's Day taster glass and enjoyed on 03/08/14.

Appearance: Pours a brown syrup color, with a thin layer of head. Light browning of the glass from swirling, minimal lacing and retention. 4/5

Smell: Smells exactly like the name promises. Chocolate chips, pancakes, light vanilla, and lots of syrup. Wow. Not super complex, but quite enticing and evocative of breakfast. 4.75/5

Taste: Tastes like chocolate malt pancakes slathered in syrup without the viscosity, oddly enough. Finishes with lots of the syrup. Has a nice light underlying bitterness that adds a good balance. Tasty! 4.5/5

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, okay carbonation. A bit waterier than most beers of this flavor profile. Wish that it had a little more oomph. 3.25/5

Overall: A really nice smelling and tasting beer that lacks the mouthfeel it deserves. I guess it is a brown ale base, though, so maybe I should not be overly critical of that?

Cost: Unknown (all tap pours at Hunahpu's Day were included as part of the $50 ticket price).

Serving type: on-tap
