Draft on tap at Cigar City Tap Room (Tampa, FL). Pours a deeper brown darl hue, well hazed body throws deep near opaque brownish black hues. A healthy ruby copper bottom and edges glow well. Frothy light brown head atop cakes, laces ok overall. Aromas are growing toasty malts, bit of cocoa, earth, and some gentle fruit. Faint woody feel, mellow estery fruit, cocoa and gentle coffee. Touch of Belgian yeast influence skates in as it warms a bit more. A bit more cocoa driven at times, mellow toastiness, dryness hit. Initial is medium bodied, some solid toastiness, cocoa, earthy brown malts. Touches of Belgian yeast, mellow spice, gentle fruit. A lot going on here, drying out and getting more toasty, faint smoked feel, touch of leather, dryness as we move on. Some banana, gentle estery fruit. Mellow sweetness, brown malts, biscuits into the middle. Backend shows toastiness, earthy dryness, some cocoa, earth, tobacco and gentle woody elements. Dry, mellow hopping. Lingering toasty and faint cocoa. Mellow fruit, dried out yeast. Pretty good beer, especially at 4.5 ABV. Really puts a lot of elements together well. Iíve had some bigger girthy sticky Belgian Brown Porter types lately back home, and this smaller version blows them out of the water. Well done.
