Draft sample at Cigar City. Poured a clear brown color with an average creamy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and dark coffee aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth slick texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted cuban coffee sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Standout complex brew.

1QT growler–pours a rich light brown head that disappears. Aroma is deep roasty coffee. Taste is deep roasty coffee grounds.

Growler… Hazy mahogany ale with a small, creamy white head. Good retention. The aroma is big on espresso beans, but also provides less fervent cocoa and toasted nuts. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is all toasted nuts, deeply roasted Cuban espresso and mild cocoa nibs with a lightly acrid twang. Astringent, dry finish. Kudos to darkguardian for providing the growler!

Sample poured by Solan, thanks Alan!! Brown pour, tan head. The cuban espresso dominates the nose, with faint hints of chocolate in the background. Upon drinking it the coffee and chocolate do really well together. Smooth and delicious. Another damn fine beer. Hell yeah!!

32 oz. growler from my Secret Santa- thanks, Santa! Pours a cloudy brown with tons of visible carbonation and a dissipating beige head. Aroma of coffee grounds, vanilla, tobacco, and dust. Flavor is also big on the coffee, too much so, with caramel, tobacco, nuts, and wood. Seems like it was a little oxidized. I initially didn’t like this one at all because of the huge coffee content, but it did grow on me a bit. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel.

’09 notes Another great use of the Maduro base. This one was better than the Cuban Espresso version. aroma and taste had some amazing coffee/espresso blends with a more lactic/chocolate use of the mocha/cacao nibs that balanced out the bitterness that the espresso/coffee usually gives. Oatmeal, malty profile of the Maduro is present. Perfect match for your breakfast. Could drink this one all day.

Ibrew2or3 (8808) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2009
The fluid poured out of the brewery purchased growler a striking amber with tan head. The aroma is a big nose full of dark roasted coffee with much softer notes of varied roasted malts. The taste isn’t that far from being a cup-o-joe to start with plenty of dark roasted coffee. By midway and to the finish the coffee recedes back enough to reveal notes of roasted malts, sweet malts and a sprinkling of cacao nibs.

Quart growler from CCBC. Brown color with a frothy tan head. Sharp mocha, tobacco smoke aromas. Frothy mouthfeel. Good coffee, spicy chocolate flavors on a nutty brown malt base. A bit thin in the finish. Nice coffee brew.

From Skyview. I liked this, but not everyone at the tasting did. Brown color. Big coffee aroma. Coffee flavor with a carbonation bite, and just a little unsweetened chocolate. Light palate.
