DATE: November 25, 2017... OCCASION: Christmas tree in place, the season's preparations have begun... and a Thanksgiving beer showdown with Forgotten Boardwalk's Morro Castle... GLASSWARE: Stoudts pint... pours a velvet-black body and a fizzing, sizzling off-white head that settles to a smoke ring... not much else going on... deep, rich chocolate-almost like a tootsie roll--with a mild coffee presence that melds with spiced wine and roasted bread malts... smooth, lively, warm at its finish and quite drinkable in its 5.5%... its tobacco-infused, coffee-beaned, chocolate-laden flavor profile is big and appreciable--a brown that is anything but boring... in fact, one of the better browns I have had--I will seek this out again, come next fall...

It’s hard to make a really good brown ale. This is a really good brown ale.

Color is an opaque dark brown. Plenty of light tan, moderately fine head.

The smell has molasses and cocoa powder. It's pretty lactic, too. There's also a honey wafer scent. Light sweet smokiness.

The first taste I get is charred barrel, accompanied by a little bit of dark dried fruit, call it figs and raisins. The lactic element is still there, but it kind of drifts on its own, not really connected to anything. I keep thinking something else is going to develop, but the charred barrel just pushes right back. I do get a bit of oatmeal grain on the back end.

Feel is thin for the type, and carbonation comes out a little too easily. Smoky aftertaste is pleasant.

Day drinking stop at Twin Peaks in Pensacola. Served wayyy too cold so not much of a chance to warm up and show it's true colors. Still super tasty. Haven't had a brown ale in a while. Solid and recommended.

Drinks like a porter but with more flavor than most examples of that style. Crazy flavor profile for a brown ale. Drinks smooth and easy. Best beer I've had from Cigar City so far.
