GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Cigar City brews have a bit of a mythical reputation up here given their extremely limited availability. Fortunately, I was able to snag one at Tria Rittenhouse in Philly. Beautiful beer. Solid deep mahogany under a rich mocha head with plenty of lacing. In fact, if the lacing were any lighter in color, it would pass for a Stevie Nicks concert shawl. Robust coffee and bittersweet chocolate aroma. More rich coffee in the flavor with notes of aged vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and caramel. Velvetty mouthfeel and a long, sweet finish that somehow resolves with a snappy dryness. A truly great beer.

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Bottled. Poured deeper brown with a rich cap of tan head. The aroma picked up sweet chocolate, toasted oats, and molasses, with nutty accents.. fresh, greener earthy accents.. well presented. The flavor found more of the nutty notes and more semi-sweet chocolate, with earth, vanilla, and light peppery accents.. more raw earth and bitterness through the finish.. flowed fairly well through the palate. Medium-bodied with lower carbonation.. scratchy at times, but smooth for the most part.. tasty stuff.

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Pours a dark brown with garnet highlights under a small off-white head. Nutty aroma, some alcohol. Lightly sweet with nutty light roast malts. Some bitterness, I think it’s roast malt bitterness rather than hop bitterness here. Smooth bodied with lively carbonation.

SanfordBrewer (1391) - Sanford, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2011
hazy mahogany, dense creamy lasting beige head, full body, medium-high carbonation.

aroma: bright leafy funk, toffee malt, nutty malt or oats, and bready yeast.

taste: stale coffee, leafy hops, bit-o-honey, nuts, toffee malt, some bready yeast, and a hint of charred and chocolate malts.

there’s either coffee in here mingling oddly with leafy hops, or a mild infection. the oats give a nice creamy head and body, as a well as rich nutty taste.

madvike (2843) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Bottle shared by Alexander - Pours clear rosy brown with a thin brown bubbled head. Smells of spicy cedar, lightly nutty with sweet malt. Taste is sour lactic, nutty and dry malt, light roast. The acidic cedar finish melts together with the roast and sourness to form a coffee-like finish. Nice mouthfeel, and a fine-bubbled body make this a smooth treat.

Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a small lingering tan head. Aromas of cocoa, carmel and light cola. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of cocoa, carmel and a hint of cola with a crisp cocoa finish.
