Pours dark brown in color with a tan head with notes of caramel, toffee, chocolate and toasted bread.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A- Dark brown topped with a thin off white head. Head fades quickly to a ring and leaves a little spotty lacing on the glass.

S- Dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, toffee, and tobacco.

T- Sweet molasses and coffee are the dominate notes at first. More coffee with hints of chocolate make up the middle. The finish is very dry and with a few notes of tobacco and a hint of leather. As this one warms it becomes sweeter and sweeter with notes of candied fruit on the palate.

M- Full bodied and a little syrupy, carbonation is low but in line for the style. Finish is dry and becomes a little sticky sweet by the end of the glass.

D- The 9.0% ABV is well hidden but the sweetness got to me before the end of the glass.

My first Cigar City beer fell a little short for me, but that doesn’t mean I will not be trying more of them. The sweetness is just a little too over the top for me.
