Nice! Very smooth. Very understated and consistent to the point it could be overlooked for cigar city's other outstanding brews. Dark mahogany with basically little to no head and average smell but the flavor is amazing. Lower abv as well so while not quite a session could have a few and none the wiser. Thinner mouthfeel as well makes this a good any season type offering. Well done!

12oz can into a FW Tulip. 8/29/13 bottling date

Pours a dark brown color with a reddish hue when held up to the light, with a nice 1'' head. Smell is of roasted malt and a tad of toffee. The taste is very hardy and enjoyable. Great coffee, chocolate, caramel and malty notes. A real treat to drink. Full bodied even at 5.5% ABV, so i can see this being quite filling if you drink a lot of them in a row.

Overall excellent brown ale that I could drink all day!
