Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: tpd975 on 05-26-2009

This rich brown ale is redolent with Cuban-style roasted espresso beans, sweet caramel and toffee and hints of dry nuttiness. Cuban Espresso is a popular drink in the Cigar City of Tampa owing to its many Sicilian and Cuban immigrants. The beans for Cubano-Style Espresso Brown Ale are roasted locally by Mazzaro's Italian Market and Deli in St. Petersburg to our exact specifications.

A: Dark brown, light cloudy, amber hue, a finger of light tan head. Some random lacing.

S: Espresso, chocolate, peanut butter, dark toasted notes, molasses.

T: Dark toasted notes, hints of coffee, chocolate, molasses and peanut butter. A little vanilla. Mostly holds the brown ale quality as opposed to the other ingredients that were added. Good maltiness. The coffee especially comes out as it warms.

M: Medium rich body, medium low carbonation.

O: Really well done brew, not overpowering on the Cuban espresso, chocolate or cocoa qualities that were added, but a great creative concept. Got this at Whole foods near West Palm Beach, drank in Deerfield Beach, July 17th, 2014.

Pours a nice dark brown with tan head. Really smell the coffee and hints of vanilla. Taste is similar. Not as bold as I thought it would be. Could have been a little better, but no complaints. Very tasty and refreshing. Another winner from CCB in my opinion.
