Goodness, after enjoying this beer for over a year, I'm finally reviewing it. Sipping from the can at the moment; however, I know this beer has a fantastic hazy brown color. It smells heavily of toffee and chocolate , with a good amount of caramel and coffee. The taste is mainly the toffee, closely followed by coffee and then the roasted malts. What really makes this beer for me is the mouthfeel. Superbly creamy. I can't recall if they actually employ oats in the brewing process, but it certainly feels like it. Maduro coats the tongue and mouth, and I love that about it. No homo.

A- Dark chocolate brown with a creamy tan head of about a 1/2 finger that doesn't stick around too long. Opaque with sparse lacing. I know browns aren't usually the most asthetically pleasing style, but nothing that really stands out to me here.

S- Caramel and roasted nuts with toasted grain up front. Touch of chocolate. Espresso kicks in late. Delightful nutty aroma.

T- Follows nose pretty well. Intense roasted walnuts and caramel gets things started. Chocolate, oats, and the slightest touch of earthy hops also make their way. Finish left a little something to be desired for my palate. But it had a nice richness to it.

M- A little thin, but not far off for the style. Smooth and fairly drinkable. Good session beer if you enjoy these flavors. Not bitter, but slightly dry.

O- My first from Cigar City. Unique, and certainly enjoyable. Almost like a light, thinner porter. I can see how this would pair well with desert and a cigar (if i were a cigar smoker). Very interesting and well put together nut brown.
