Bottle shared by Armin! Inky dark black pour, ring of dark carbonation and an aroma of rich coffee and green pepper. Flavor is extremely rich bakers chocolate, a little bit of vanilla and plenty of rich peat. Really damn nice, thanks Armin! Bacterial (2986) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bottle shared by Armin - thanks!! Pours a deep black with thin tan head. Nose is smokey burnt chocolate with a smidg of coffee. So smooth and chocolatey - amazing finish, really yummy. Fantastic beer! Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Pours dark, unlcear thick black coffee in color with a smaller, cocoa-colored head. Aroma is similar to KBS, fresh potent coffee and some sweet chocolate notes, so nice. Flavor is absolutely delicious! Brings notes of chocolate, light vanilla, smooth coffee sweetness, and some freshness, not quite minty but herbal fresh. Body is not too creamy but full and delicious still. mar (5407) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2012

Bottle generously shared by PaulUnwin. THANK YOU, Paul! Pours a dark porter/ stout brown with a tan head. Nose is big fudgy chocolate, wood, vanilla, and cafe con leche. Flavor follows with fudge, chocolate, vanilla, wood, and some coffee. Medium in body and lingering chocolate and coffee in the finish.

HUGE coffee for me here though other reviews don’t seem to reflect this. The vanilla was very faint if at all and I can’t say I got much wood. However, those components most likely merely served to make up the balance of this beer which was fantastic. Moderate body, big chocolate. smith4498 (3640) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours black with light brown head. Aromas of coffee and milk chocolate with some roasted malts. Espresso and sweet chocolaty flavors with some vanilla and bitter roasted malts. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Another well done stout from Cigar City.
