Overwhelming coffee /caramel mixture that just didn't work for me. Tasted less like an ale, and more like a spiked latte from Starbucks.

Poured from 12-ounce can into chalice. Pretty dark caramel sauce color, with a substantial off-white head. The aromas and flavors of this had me thinking that I was drinking a rich coffee porter. Lots of complexity, with some nice interplay among the notes of chocolate, toffee, espresso, and caramel. It may have been due to the power of suggestion, but I was also picking up some faint hints of tobacco as well. A little sweetness with a touch of bitterness on the palate, with a dry finish. Medium bodied and highly drinkable, and a good complement to a variety of food. In a word, outstanding.

I love this brown ale so much. Everything about the flavor is perfect, it's so warm and chocolatey. It's great!

The appearance was a nice brown color with a small white head that quickly dissipated and didn’t leave any lacing. The smell had a really nice roasty/nutty sweetness carrying through into a light milk chocolate. Light coffee and espresso does end up coming out eventually. The taste was sweet and roasty through all of the previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, this one sat about a medium in body with a slight sessionable aspect about it. I do have to say, that this has got to be one of the smoothest and silkiest Brown ales of just how it rolls so smoothly over my tongue. Overall, hot damn, if I could get this on a regular basis I would and you know this could be quite possibly the best beer I’ve had by Cigar City.
