Draft. Pours near black with a thin beige head. Roasted malty aroma with a hint of coffee. The flavor has roasted malts, dry nutty notes, and a hint of coffee. Pretty good. Sammy (12205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2011
Cigar City Smokes NYC Rattle N Hum event. Big stout aroma. Dry but not that dry, which is a good thing. Decent for what it is, but gets lost in what else Cigar City does. Dark colour, suitable carbonation. BREWMUSKCLES (2686) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 3, 2011
ABV IS %5.3 and on tap at R & H NYC. Wonderful chocolate and pinecone hops just sweet enough and melded flavors perfectly balanced and full. full milk consistancy with a refreshing aspect none the less. Burnt acrid smoke and lingering finish this is just a treat for the senses! A must try! jredmond (8285) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2011

Appearance: Pours a seemingly black body with a medium-sized, frothed, airy beige head.
Smell: Roasty, earthen aroma of heavily-kilned malt smelling of bakers chocolate, burnt wood chips, and stale gas station coffee.
Taste: An expected follow-through of the aroma - roasted malts paired with tones of unsweetened chocolate, dark roast coffee, and lightly smoky charred wood bark. Faint roasted grain astringency midway couples with the ample hop bitterness present. Dry dark maltiness through to the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation giving a bit of tingle to the proceedings.
Drinkability: It’s a nice, easy drinking stout, it has good flavor and the purportedly low alcohol is definitely appreciated. DialSquare (5030) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2010
On tap at the brewery - from an old tasting note: black pour with thin brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and chocolate. Tastes are cocoa, earthy hops, coffee, and leather. Thin to medium texture with a nice spike of carbonation. dry bitter fin. GodOfThunder (1249) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Draft at Redlight Redlight. For a style I’m not usually a fan of, this is surprisingly drinkable. The signature toasted malt flavors from Cigar City are in there, which makes it a joy. Dry and roasty, without being chalky. Great flavors all-around and much better than most of this style. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2010
