On tap at the Coffee District. Dry and hoppy. I’m such a huge fan of the CCB, but this is not my favorite style...

Tampa, Fl - on tap at the brewery tasting room. Dark black pour, thickish mocha colored pour, decently thick lacing. Day old coffee notes in the aroma with some fresh lake water. Flavor has the same coffee essence, hints of smoke, touch of licorice. Good example of the dry stout style. Decently thick mouthfeel - some velvety smoothess - just the right amount of carbonation.

32 oz. growler from CCB. deep black pour with a 1 finger tan head - which fades rather quickly. dry roasted malt nose with a thin layer of bitterness. medium body - well carbonated - with layers of roasted malts, light coffee, chocolate, some dark fruit and citrus bitterness. dry oatmeal finish with a touch of smoke and coffee. excellent dry stout!

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2011 16 oz pint(maybe?) on-tap at a new bar Gainesville, so it was definitely fresh dude. Well balanced toasted malt flavor and hoppy finish. No off aromas or flavors, I enjoyed it and had a second pint. I would like to taste this beer on Nitro sometime too guys...

if you are going to drink a stout, this one is probably the one to do so. the finish is a little dry for my tastes but then again its supposed to be given the style. heavy on the malts, some honey notes, rye cereal-ness and pumpernickel twang. somewhat cocoa powder-y. very good for what it is.

ExpendableHero (787) - Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Solid brew. Pours black with a brown, frothy head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, and caramel. Tastes of dark, bitter chocolate, rich black coffee, licorice, and some caramel. A bit smoky, and chalky. Dry, pleasant finish. Tastes like a super Guinness, and that is a very good thing. Delicious beer.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Tap at Kickback’s in Jax, FL. The pour is a deep cola red looking black in the glass with a creamy, thick, deep brown head with nice retention and decent lace. Aroma is heavy milk chocolate and sweet cherries. Taste is bitter chocolate forward, lemony, thinnish, pretty present char. Not as ashy and astringent as my growler sample (which the original rating was deleted for various reasons). Definitely excellent for style, much more bitter and dark chocolate heavy than Guinness. But still has a thin lemon tea character going on. Good stuff.
