Tap at Redlight. Pours a jet black with an off white head. Huge roasted grain, coffee, and spicy white oak in the aroma. Much of the same notes appear in the taste, with the oak blending nicely with the roasted grains. Tasty brew. steelcitybrew (454) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2011
Pours a jet black with a minimal tan head. Nose is roasted malts, white oak, wood, coffee. Taste is roasted coffee malts, licorece, molasses, sweet caramel. Palate is very good for a beer of this abv, tad bit of warming and a clean finish. A pretty good treatment Ibrew2or3 (8860) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2011
On tap Cigar City pouring deep dark mahogany with thin mocha head. The aroma is roasty and lactose as well as burnt to charred malts. The taste has a nice dark roasted and burnt maltiness that runs smack dab into spicy oak. It gets pretty burnt and almost ashy and mixing nicely with the spicy oak to midway and into the finish. markwise (5450) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2011
On draft at CCB. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is dry cocoa, earth, dark roasted coffee, ash, and a hint of dark fruit and dark chocolate. Flavor is similar with a lot of dry stout and the white oak taking a back seat. Finish lingers with dry roast, chocolate, and ash. Medium-bodied and very enjoyable.
