This one totally blew me away. It reminded me more of an espresso shot then a beer. The aroma was all coffee bean and nut. The flavor was smooth with chocolate notes. Cigar City can do no wrong.

Bottle thanks to Justin in a recent trade, thanks man! Pour is deep brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is exploding with freshly ground coffee beans, a light creaminess, and a light nuttiness. Not overly complex but really nice if you like coffee. Flavor is caramel-coffee up front with light roasted malt and sweet sugary notes in the middle. The finish is vanilla and hazelnut with light coffee. Certainly coffee forward but not one dimensional.

The aroma of this beer is incredible. The taste does not disappoint either. If you are a fan of coffee and espressos it is a must have. Could easily drink this in substitute of my morning coffee.

Smells like espresso. Rich chocolate and espresso flavors, blended with heavy cream, roasted grains, toffee, caramel and brown sugar. Finish is creamy with notes of vanilla. I?d prefer a heavier body, but this is a tasty beer!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Třrst. Pours dark amber brown with some place. Aroma is over sweetened week bad coffee with some.earth and light toasted grain showing through. Flavor is truly gross vanilla and hazelnuts flavored week industrial coffee. Feel is watery, cloying, and sticks around far too long. Truly awful. One of the worst beers I have had. I can’t believe the same brewers make this as many other incredible CC beers. Left on the bar.

From a 12 oz bottle. Potent burnt coffee in the nose. You definitely have to be a coffee fan to truly enjoy this one. It's nice to see these flavors in a style other than porter or stout.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a pretty dark brown with a thin head and aromas of coffee and cream. Flavor is magnificent. Somewhat thin on the palate and a little underhanded at first, but then comes a slap of vanilla and then coffee to finish things out. Very nicely done.
