Huge thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a nice-sized brown head. It looks like I expect Cigar City stouts to look. The aroma is heavy on the chocolate and roasted malt. I also get some dark fruit (raisins and figs) as well as a little bit of rum and oak notes. The flavor is awesome. I get a ton of milk chocolate as well as a lot of rum and raisins. The beer is fairly sweet overall and the alcohol is very well hidden. There is a little bit of oak in the flavor, but what really comes through from the barrel-aging is the rum. An awesome combination of flavors. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Another highly-rated stout from Cigar City that certainly lived up to the hype.

#2900! Bottle courtesy jjfoodie. Extremely dark black color. Dark appearance with a nice brown head. Thick legs. Aroma is pretty intense. Heavy dark chocolate with roasted malts, raisins and oak. Lovely aroma. Flavor is fantastic. Lots of dark malts and super sweet chocolate. Lovely rum and oak tones that finish in a roasted awesomeness. It also has a nice cinnamon spice character towards the finish. Fantastically sweet and smooth.

750ml bottle. Pour is typical for a CCB stout which is to say it looks fantastic - pitch black with no light passing through. Small but thick mocha head that recedes to a thin collar and leaves a little lacing. Aroma has so much going on with sweet rum notes alongside chocolate covered raisins, oak and a little tobacco (which I always seem to get in CCB stouts). Taste is sweet up front with the rum and chocolate coming through on top of overripe dark fruits dipped in brown sugar. The finish is lightly spicy with tobacco, oak and leather. Though there is a nice lingering sweetness on the palate. The mouthfeel is absolutely decadent. Silky smooth, close to full bodied but with enough carbonation to soften things up. I’m not sure I can imagine a better mouthfeel. To say that CCB knows their impy stouts would be a massive understatement as it seems that ever one they put out is world-class or close to it (Hunahpu and variations, Zhukov, 110K b2, etc.). This is right up there with those beers - fantastic.

750ml bottle shared at a tasting. Dark black color with a lasting tan head. Huge roasty aroma with molasses, anise, rum, and cinnamon. The flavor reminds me of a lot of of other Cigar City stouts, probably because they’re all from the same base beer (zing!). Complex with dark fruit, raisins, prunes, roast, dark chocolate, cinnamon and spice, and rum barrel. VERY heavy on the mouthfeel, insanely heavy like -bal aged Hunahpu’s or something, with low carbonation. Sticky as hell and syrupy. Pretty good beer, but I’d like it to be a bit more drinkable.

Bottle big thanks to Steelcitybrew. pours thick black ink and pretty much no head. Nose is big strong sweet plum esters, rich chocolate, alcohol, barrel aged whiskey, sweet liquor and thick molasses. Taste is thick and rich liquor with heavy notes of barrel, fruit, sweet roasty thick malts. Body is thick and heavy. Some carbonation does it well. Really nice.

Bottle at Stone sour ale fest. Pitch black, with short dense tan head. Sweet chewy malts, molasses, raisin, cookie dough, barrel quality (bourbon, oak, rum), cinnamon, and burnt brown sugar. Rich, tasty beer. Excellent to try this out in small portions.
