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 (5766) - 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 (2588) - 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.

Hunahpus day. This stuff is awesome. Light red pour with a creamy head. Aroma was woody with soft notes of vanilla and fruity hops. Nice vanilla presence, some wood and a good bit of hops from top to bottom. The nitro really kicks this up a notch. So soft and drinkable with nicely developed flavors. Among all the madness this was a nice find.
