This was the last of the Cigar City brews the father-in-law picked up for me. I wasn’t super excited for this one since I don’t love brown ales. There are some good ones (Amsterdam’s whatever-they-call-it-now brown ale, Newcastle…)
It was a great day of friends, sun and beer and to top it off, I had to have one more beer. Unfortunately, this was the one that I grabbed.
It poured out dark brown, as expected, with very little head. It smelled very rich in malts and sweetness. I found it to be a little too malty for my liking. After a while, it started to taste more like booze than anything else, which was weird, because it was only 5.5%.
So apparently I drank them in the reverse order of goodness….oops.
