Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ClockworkOrange on 02-04-2009

Dark in color with a ruby hue with forward notes of chocolate and caramel and light toffee notes in the aroma. Flavor has big notes of bittersweet chocolate with notes of caramel and toffee and moderate hop bitterness and more caramel and toffee and slight hints of char. A big take on a classic style.

I’ve had this on draft at the brewery and from a 1 gallon growler multiple times since I was at the brewery eight days ago. This particular is from some of the beer from the growler which was siphoned into a wine bottle, corked and sealed with wax. It has held up incredibly well. Served in a pint glass.
A: Black and brown beer with little head (same as from brewery).
S: Roasted malts and caramel.
T: Malty, caramel and some small notes of vanilla and that sweetness that Cigar city dark beers have. Not as evident as Marshal Zhukov but still there.
M: A little bit of a coffee taste and the same roasted, caramel goodness that accompanies the rest of the beer.
O: This is a great porter that has held up extremely well since I bought it. I wish this was bottled because it rivals some of the better six pack porters that I like as regular everyday beers (Founders, Ballast point…).

Great smooth taste with bitter notes of toffee and chocolate. Subtle beginnings but the after taste is amzing, tasting every flavor once is washes over your tounge.

On tap at The Brass Tap (Tampa).
Opaque and essentially black in the glass. Excellent, sticky lacing.
Flavor is about mid-way between Amer. Porter (with extra hops) and Baltic Porter. Black coffee in the finish and aftertaste, with a touch of smoke. Mildly bitter, increasing into the aftertaste.

O: a fine porter.
