Reddish brown with a thin, light tan head.

Sweet chocolate chip and sticky maple syrup aromas.

Syrup! Chocolate chips! Butter even!

This tastes exactly as advertised, to the point that I'm a little scared to know how they did this!

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).
