Tmoney99 (10409) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Tap sample Nitro. Poured clear reddish brown with a large creamy off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and soft wood aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with the same sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer would go well with spicy food or a cigar from this area.

HonusWagner (1323) - Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Nice and creamy feel with excellent notes of vanilla, sweet malt, not particularly hoppy, oak comes through mostly in the vanilla flavor more than in any really "woody" flavors. Great stuff, another awesome CCB session beer.

Scopey (6180) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2013
Nitro. Tap at CCB. It pours deep amber with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is cream soda, berry, vanilla and caramel. The taste is dark fruit, dried berry, earth, toast, pine, caramel and some decent bitterness. Medium body and soft carbonation. Smooth, well-balanced and easy drinking.

On tap NITRO at Cigar City Taproom. Pours a dark copper brown with an off white head and sweet, whisky, vanilla aroma. Taste is similar, lots of vanilla, whiskey, and oak that lead to a smooth, dry finish. Nice brew with interesting flavors.

On nitro at Cigar City tasting room in Tampa, FL. Definitely an interesting concept, but WAY too much vanilla. Enough to ruin the entire beer.
