Thanks to PeteinSD! Pitch black pour with a thick chocolate mousse head. Aroma is roasted malt, tobacco, and bitter chocolate. Taste is creamy, smooth, chocolate, expreso, black patent malt, It is chewy and sticks to the glass like glue. This was one of those beers you dream would never end.

Bottle at Jezís Bday. Fucking good looking beer. The mouth feel was what stood out most for me in this. Thick and oily almost enveloping the mouth and super creamy with that bitter bite on the finish which I really enjoy. This isnít a crazy Imperial Stout by any means but what Cigar City have done here is just nail this style all round with balance and depth. Great beer

Deep opaque black with a very small off white head. Aroma is strong semi dark chocolate and some espresso, slightly boozy. Chocolate milk flavor with a very gentle bitter and espresso line aftertaste. Not cloying at all and alcohol incredibly masked. Well done
