COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark in color with a ruby hue with forward notes of chocolate and caramel and light toffee notes in the aroma. Flavor has big notes of bittersweet chocolate with notes of caramel and toffee and moderate hop bitterness and more caramel and toffee and slight hints of char. A big take on a classic style.

On tap at the brewery. Comes a very dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, caramel, and vanilla. Very nice.

I was apprehensive at first, due to the name, but up for a unique flavor. The story written on the can about puppies’ breath didn’t assuage my apprehension. They’re really going for a puppy’s breath. As I think about it, I bet that they were tasting this beer after a few beers, and someone jokingly said that it tasted like a puppy’s breath, so they went with it. Another reason to love Cigar City. Pours dark and rich, thin but tenacious head - perfect head for this beer. Taste is malty, cocoa,and caramel. Hops are mild and balanced. Slightly sweeter than what I’d typically drink, but they did it right.

Black pour, light tan head. Nose is roasted malts, light cocoa, somewhat vegetal. Taste is roasted malts, a touch of stale coffee, chocolate, vegetal, aluminum. Thin sticky mouthfeel. I like this much more on nitro.

Nitro at Oblivion Taproom. Aromas of roast coffee and sweet chocolate. Taste is smooth roasted malt with a bitter hop presence that plays nice with the dark chocolate sweetness. Creamy and smooth finish. Really good.

S_Side_Smitty (463) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2014
On nitro at Brass Tap. Pours black with a medium creamy light tan head. Aroma is molasses like with some grains in the background. Taste is heavy roasted malts balanced well with some hoppy bitterness. Sweetness comes out in the mid and blends well with the other flavors. Finish is mildly bitter. Smooth overall.
