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 (8440) - San Diego County, 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.

Chalsk (1065) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2011
On tap at Capones. A gift sample from Matt Capone himself. Pours a dark brown color with an off white foam head. Has that sweet stout taste with a light mouthfeel to keep it refreshing. Notes of coffee and chocolate through the finish. Cigar City can’t go wrong IMO. Much obliged Matt.

blipp (6114) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2011
Draft. Pours near black with a thin beige head. Roasted malty aroma with a hint of coffee. The flavor has roasted malts, dry nutty notes, and a hint of coffee. Pretty good.

Sammy (8660) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2011
Cigar City Smokes NYC Rattle N Hum event. Big stout aroma. Dry but not that dry, which is a good thing. Decent for what it is, but gets lost in what else Cigar City does. Dark colour, suitable carbonation.

BREWMUSKCLES (2234) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2011
ABV IS %5.3 and on tap at R & H NYC. Wonderful chocolate and pinecone hops just sweet enough and melded flavors perfectly balanced and full. full milk consistancy with a refreshing aspect none the less. Burnt acrid smoke and lingering finish this is just a treat for the senses! A must try!
