Drank on-tap at The Democratic Republic Of Beer (DRB), Miami, FL
The beer poured dark chestnut brown and was topped by a thin film of light tan froth. There was no lacing whatsoever. The liquid contained many bubbles and reminded me somewhat of root beer.
The aroma was pleasant and interesting but quite muted initially. Toffee and caramel were noticeable. Touch of chocolate and hazelnut. The malt profile was very British. Coffee notes came out as beer warmed. With time, the nose turned sweeter and more robust.
The flavor was similar to the aroma except drier and less complex. A mix of toasted and roasted malts appeared on the front end before a dry nuttiness took over. The finish contained notes of coffee, as well as some earthy, bittering hops. There was also a dry, oaty quality to it.
The mouthfeel was thinner than anticipated with a crisp, spritzy effervescence. It felt somewhat soda-like.
I was excited to try a Cigar City beer while vacationing in South Florida, but this offering was a bit disappointing.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Dark brown, opaque, 2 fingers width of light tan head, pretty good retention, but leaves effectively no lacing.
S: Dark roasted malts, heavy cream, char, chocolate malt.
T: Follows the nose with cream and roasted malt. A good amount of bakers chocolate, some herbaceous notes, and mild bitterness. Tasty.
M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the heavy side but appropriate, drinkability is good.
O: Not my favorite style, but quite an enjoyable beer. Certainly worth a try.
