A: Pours dark black with a tall tan head. Excellent retention and lace. S: Lots of roasted malt, chocolate, dark coffee, and smoke. T: Deep roasted flavor. Lots of roasted malt with a hint of char. Dark dark coffee, mild chocolate malt, and caramel. Mildly earthy with a hint of molasses. M: Medium in body, smooth, lightly dry finish. D: Excellent. Damn fine stout, homerun when compared to other stouts of the same style.

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

Draft at International Beer Garten (Lutz, FL). Pours a near black color with touches of dark reddish brown along the edges. Thick tan head that lingers nicely with excellent lacing along the glass. Rich aroma of roasted malt and dark bittersweet chocolate with hints of pipe tobacco and molasses. Very smooth and easy to drink. Quite enjoyable.

Love this stout. Aroma is slight roast, coffee, hops, and some chocolate. Poured pitch black with a tan colored head. Awesome. Taste is out of this world. Super creamy and smooth as hell. Probably the best thing about this beer. Tasted like chocolate and caramel mixed with some slight roasted in there as well. One of those rare stouts that can be drunken glass after glass.

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 during Philly Beer Week Event at Capone’s in Norristown. Pours jet black with a tan foamy head. Aroma is of dark Malt and the tatste is intensely sweet with honey and raspberry flavors. Mouthfeel is thick like a milkshake.

32oz growler shared by ibrew2or3, thanks Dave! Blackish brown that let’s some light through, loose khaki head. Nice balanced nose, coffee, licorice, cocoa powder, with some light vanilla and nut. Body is light with light but good feeling carbonation. Nice coffee bitterness, light cocoa and licorice in the flavor also. Nice stuff, thanks again Dave.

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 can’t go wrong IMO. Much obliged Matt.
