This was the nitro pour. Very pleasant aroma of Carmel , vanilla & oak. Clear rust color with a creamy beige head. Tastes of Carmel and mild roasted notes. Watery palate even with the added body of the nitro. Overall enjoyable but not one of CCB’s best!

Nitro tap; pours a clear copper with fluffy tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of smoky oak and whiskey, taste follows with a nice underlying amber and caramel malt. Smooth and creamy from the nitro, probably the best red I have ever had.

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.
