3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. This one pours a deep black color with some mahogany at the edges and topped by a small, foamy khaki colored head that leaves nice spots of lace on the glass. The aroma is nice and roasty with bitter chocolate, roasted barley, and dark roasted coffee. There is also some earthy hops on the back end as well. The flavor follows and shows more of the bitter, dark cocoa malts, roasted barley, and darkly roasted coffee. There is some milk chocolate sweetness to balance all the dry, roasty flavors. Some earthy hops add some nice bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with ample carbonation that leads to a roasty and dry finish. This is a really nice session stout with good flavor.

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 canít go wrong IMO. Much obliged Matt.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

On tap at CCB. It was a hot day and this poured a nice clear deep dark brown with tan frothy head. Aroma was coffee and cream. A bit dry on the palate but still enough sweetness to make it go down well and quick. This was very yummy!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ CCB. A black beer with a dense brown head. Nose is loaded with roasty malt notes with lesser notes of coffee and a slight hint of smoke. Medium body with a creamy, soft mouth feel and ample carbonation. Wow, this beer is much better than I expected. The first thing that hit me in the flavor was fresh roasted coffee notes followed by dark malt, and touches of chocolate, caramel, and molasses. This is another great CCB stout.
