Growler from Cigar City. Pretty solid and an excellent choice for St. Patty’s Day. Pours very dark brown, looks black in the glass with some amber sneaking through. The aroma shows oats, coffee, chocolate and some vanilla. The flavor is all of the same, nothing more, nothing less, no surprises. A light roasty and slightly creamy palate. Comes across as a bit light but also probably the lowest abv beer so far I’ve had from CCB and still quite good.

Pours black with thin brown head. Nose is heavy roasted grains, earthy hops, hints of coffee and smoke. Flavor is roasted grain, burnt bread, fresh coffee, mild smokiness, earthy hops. Very nice beer. You can easily put back a ton of this beer. Love it.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 Nitro tap at fermentation. Black pour with a creamy tan head that doesn’t leave. Aroma is very roasty with some hints of dark bitter chocolate. Nice, light mouthfeel. Flavor is following suit of the aroma of good roasty malts and some light bitter chocolate. Not bad.

Growler; thanks Ibrew3or3!! Pours dense black with thin light tan head when swirled; yummy, almost lager sweetness on the nose reminding me of a schwarzbier at first; ashy chocolate with light dried fruits, vanilla cookies and nice dry finish; soft chocolate, smooth and easy drinking; pretty nice stuff overall

Nitro @ CCB provided by one of the brewers. Near black pour with lots of creamy head. Smells great - roasted malt and coffee. Wonderfully dry and easy drinking. Roast is the star of the show with some chocolate notes.

On tap at Oblivion Tap Room, Orlando, pours a dark brown black color with a small mocha head. Nose is coffee through and through with malty notes. Taste is all deep rich espresso and coffee, light and full of flavor, and very dry. Finishes dryly and with the same flavors . Great dry stout. Quaff Score 8 / 10

On Nitro at the brand new Brass Tap in Gainesville. Awesome creamy kahki head on top of a black pour. Smells like chocolate syrup. Yum. Super smooth drinking, but a little watery. Dry finish and easy drinking. Not much flavor besides some vague roasted malt. Wondering if they accidentally poured Guinness. Bot bad but meh.
