Tampa, Fl - on tap at the brewery tasting room. Dark copper pour, off-white head, nice lace. Pleasant, earthy, tea-like aroma. Flavor has some mild citrus, coffee, earthy with a nice underlying subtle bitterness - could sit and drink this all day - good session material. Clean mouthfeel. Solid.

On tap at Cigar City, dark brown pour, little head, smoky sweet aroma, tad twinge of hops. Watery, but at 4% what can you expect?

Hazy brown pour. Nice smooth aroma of caramel, hops, very light cocoa. Flavor is light but flavorful. Malt and hops are just right!

Sammy (11176) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2011
Cigar City smokes NYC at Rattle N Hum. Hops in aroma, I was expecting more roast to be bang on the style. Carbonation comes through more aggressively. A good drinker, sessionable as I can have this and head back to whatever I was doing. An average beer overall however. Dark colour without noticeable head.

blipp (8181) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Draft. Pours deep amber orange with a thin off white head. The aroma has light sweet malts with some toasty and nutty notes. The flavor is well balanced, with toasted malts, a light sweetness, and some floral hops. Decent.

Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2011
Dark mild describes this one well, it pours quite dark but yet a lightness too, but tastes light for the way it appears, it has a taste medium bitterness and little bit of sweetness almost, good offering for a great brewery
