on tap-pours a dissipating tan head with black color. Aroma is dark malt-molasses. Taste is roasty dark malt/oat-molasses/peat, spice/earthy hops. Full body, chewy.

Draft at World of Beer. Dark brown, near black pour with a chocolate tan head. Aroma has a good bit of roasted malt, dark chocolate and smokiness. Wasn’t crazy about the flavor, too much smokiness without some of the other flavors I was expecting to balance it out. I love Cigar City, but this was not my favorite from them...still, a lesser Cigar City beer is still better than most.

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2011
draft @ redlight redlight. Roasted malts on the nose with notes of chocolate and charcoal. Pours very dark brown/black with a thick off white head. Pretty thick mouthfeel, rich and chocolatey with hints of smoke and bitter bakers chocolate. Pretty good. Flavor is great just pretty thick for a schwarzbier, reminds more of a baltic porter.

11/27/11. Growler courtesy rbrazell! Thanks, man! Pitch black pour, slight ruby edges under the light, with a nice tan head that holds, sticks, and laces in streaks. Nice aroma of chocolate, cocoa powder, roasted malts, and a touch of graininess. Wonderful chocolate flavor, milk chocolate, with a touch of fruitiness and graininess. Smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel, but well carbonated. This has all the flavors of an awesome porter but with the easy-drinking smoothness of a lager. Delish!

Growler … Fantômepalooza 2011… Pours coal black with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The bouquet is very rich and roasty – mocha, chocolate crème and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with jazzy carbonation. Roasty and a touch acrid. Moderately tangy. Burnt mocha finish. Kudos to Dstructo for sharing this beer!

A top notch black lager from Cigar City. Good chocolately malt tones with a hint of roasted coffee and toffee with a very modest hop character.

Pours dark brown with a eggshell colored head. Nose is lots of deep roast, chocolate and nice smoke. Flavor is a great roastiness with touches of smoke. Very nice and easy drinking sessionable beer. Fantastic.

I really love the new black lager, and a session beer as well! Nice dark pour, chocolate with a tastefull amount of smokeiness. Tastes great, another winner from CCB!!

On draft at Cigar City. Another awesome lager from CCB! Pours a dark cola brown with an off-white head. Nose is some roasted malts, some earth, some slight smoke, some dry chocolate and cocoa. Flavor is similar with hints of chocolate, earth, bits of smoke, and roasted malts. Clean in the finish with just a hint of lingering smoke. Light to medium in body and overall an enjoyable lager.

Pours jet black with thick tan head. Nose is big roast, clean grains, hint of smoke. Flavor is crisp and clean, perfect amount of roasted grain, nice and dry with with the perfect amount of sweetness. Excellent beer.
