Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip. Pours a very dark amber brown with a 1 finger creamy light tan head. Good lacing. Smell: Espresso with light touches of chocolate and malt. It smells like I just walked into a coffee shop. Smells delicious. Taste: Coffee is dominant throughout, which in this case is a very good thing. There are light touches of hops and chocolate in the middle and toasted malt at the finish. Aftertaste is mildly bitter with a typical coffee aftertaste. This is like drinking iced coffee.Extremely well-balanced and delicious. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a fairly high amount of carbonation. Goes down very smooth. Drinkability: Excellent drinkability. You could knock back a few of these without any trouble. Overall: Excellent beer overall. This is the best flavor I’ve ever gotten from a coffee infused beer. I really like that Cigar City went a different direction and blended the coffee with a brown ale instead of a stout. I would highly recommend this beer to anyone, especially coffee lovers.

I am rating Cigar City Cubano-style Espresso Brown Ale, which I take to be the same beer. Vanilla, semi-sweet chocolate and coffee combine in a rich aroma. Still has a bad label, plastic and clip art. Beer is a very deep ruby brown with a slight tan head. Clean roast, coffee is prominent but not edgy or overpowering. Moderate bitterness, mostly represented in the coffee and cocoa bean roast. Not sweet at all. Medium to slightly light bodied, not fizzy. Roast finish, with a slight reminder of parched peanuts. I’m not much of a coffee dude, but this was another really good brew from Florida’s best brewery. New Leaf Market.

Clear deep red pour with a thin off-white head. The scent is coffee and chocolate. Taste is amazing, coffee, dark chocolate and nuts. Very balanced and creamy. Really looking forward to CCB coming to South Carolina!

Bottle thanks to drowland. Pours dirty brown with tan head. Nose is extremely expressive fresh cuban espresso beans, flaked oatmeal and caramel malts. Taste follows suit. I didn’t detect the chicory initially, but after reading the deScription and retasting it is in there.

Bottle,it poured dark brown with small head,aroma of coffee but not overwhelming,taste was malty with a nice soft coffee taste but not real strong which makes this very good,kinda thin but a very drinkable everyday beer.CHEERS!

Tap & bottle: a translucent brown pour w/ almost no head. Bottle aroma was great but tap espresso aroma gave me a coffee-gasm, oh my. That said the front-end to mid taste is a wonderful yet surprisingly thin coffee/malt, given the nose.

Tap. Heavy toasted and strong coffee notes for the malt, moderate resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast and hint of cola, paper and faint tar in the background. Head is huge, creamy, off-white with good spotty lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is dark brown. Flavor starts moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly bittersweet. Palate is medium, watery with a lively carbonation and a dry finish. This tastes exactly like a cup of morning coffee...served chilled and with effervescence of course.

has got a decent amount of spices and strong coffee flavor, but it lacks any real character, its thin palate and very fizzy that blocks off the flavor of something that could be better.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2010 Draft. Pours a clear reddish tinged brown color with a collared tan head. Nice strong aroma of coffee notes, vanilla, and chocolate with touches of a nutiness that is really nice. The espresso really does take center stage though as it should. Nice roasted espresso coffee notes mixed with bitter chocolate and some bitterness. I also get some vanilla and nut in the flavors at the end. Medium mouthfeel. Pretty easy drinking. Not the best coffee beer I have had but very good.
