3/18/11. Growler courtesy scotchzi. Opaque oily black pour with no head. Soy aroma with roast and a hint of chocolate... Sweet chocolate flavor with roast, coffee, dark fruits, and more. Nice! corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Draft at Cigar City during the 2011 Hunahpuís release.
Pours pitch black and completely opaquec with a one finger frothy mocha head. Great retention slowly fading into a lasting ring. Sporadic spots of streaky lacing.
Earthy oak aroma that isnít overpowering. Charred oak, slight wood, roasted malt, and chocolate. Im also picking up hints of vanilla, caramel, toffee and roasted coffee/espresso bean. Slight earthy acrid presence. A little too sweet and boozy smelling but still nice.
Medium bodied with lots of silky toasted chocolate malt balanced out by a sweet aolcohol burn that lingers. Hints of toffee, oatmeal, caramel and toffee as well as some hazelnut. The oak presence is most noticeable up front and the barrel character is well integrated into the flavor without taking away from the other notes. Subtle earthy charred oak adding some dryness and another dimension to the beer. Slight lactic cream adds complexity/body and smooths things out making this beer extremely quaffable. Abv well masked with slight boozy sweetness and faint heat in the finish which is slightly dry.

On tap Cigar City pouring up deep and dark and nice mocha head with burnt red rusty foam edges. The aroma seems to be a mix of dark berry like fruity esters, burnt malts, bakerís chocolate and some chocolate brownie. Additional pulls bring up mild levels of oak like wood spiciness. The taste comes up smooth and near silky bringing up pleasing notes of burnt malts, black licorice, chocolate and then thin layers of spicy oak and wood. Smooth and yummy brew. ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 23, 2011
UPDATED: APR 12, 2011 Very sweet nose with lots of raw and burnt sugar, lots of boozy rum, tons of chocolate. Taste is big and chewy, very sweet and hot as expected, some dark rum and chocolate, some molasses and prune. Probably the best stout Iíve had from CCB.

I have had this twice, both from growlers. Thick oily black pour, with a short dense tan head. Deep milk chocolate, vanilla, a bit roasted, molasses, raisin, and some oak. Excellent stout, I probably drank too much of it, haha, if that can be a bad thing. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2011
32 oz mini-growler. Ebony with tan frosting. Nose is oak, chocolate, espresso, prune and raisin. Creamy and coating with a lively tang. Taste is chocolate syrup, coffee bean and molasses with hints of cardamon, nutmeg and vanilla. The raisin comes out at the end to soften a roasty finish. A big, thick, sweet stout but still approachable. mlunger12 (645) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2011
