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.

Sperine (283) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2013
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.

jbruner (2940) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUN 26, 2013
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.

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 CCBs best!

PorterPounder (6223) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Tampa, Fl - on tap at the Cigar City Tap Room. Slightly murky dark copper pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma has some strong Irish whiskey accents, a hint of vanilla. Flavor brings forth some vanilla, a touch of caramel, some mint, all riding on a back end of Irish Whiskey. Smooth mouthfeel, but just a tad thinner than expected.

pineypower (2737) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Nitro at CCB. Pours a moderate amber color with a nice off white head. Aroma is of caramel, oak, vanilla, toffee and some light grainy notes. Taste is complex, nice smooth mouthfeel typical of nitro pours, oak, vanilla, smooth creamy caramel, toffee, light grainy notes. Tasty beer that tastes a lot bigger than 5%, but in a good way.
