Served in a snifter at Broken Barrel in Palm Bay, FL. Looks delightful. The smell is etherial - chocolate, coffee and cherry with a whiff of alcohol.

Taste is smooth with a complex, warming afterburn. Mouthfeel is full-bodied goodness. This beauty is perfectly carbonated, and leaves a nice lace on the glass.

Exceptionally drinkable. The wife says "Thank G-- you listened to me, babe!" - she recommended it as our 'dessert' beer. Very nice.

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…).

Arrives the darkest possible brown with a silky, creamy dark tan head resting gently on top. Head lasts a good long time and leave a very thick film and great lacing. Think Guinness.
Smell is toasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla and light cardboard. Balance is really good, fairly complex.
Taste is toast, coffee, malt, semisweet chocolate, light vanilla and cardboard notes.
Rich, silky smooth, full body, light effervescence. This just floats across the tongue. Warming from start to way after the finish. Possibly the single smoothest beer I've ever had.
