Thanks to Blisscent for sharing!!

A - Tan head goes to a ring. Cloudy brown in color.
S - Sweet rich malt, caramel, oak. A little bitterness.
T - Huge caramel up front. Some dark fruit fills in afterward. Smells a touch boozy bourbon. Maybe some coconut.
M/F - Carbonation is active, maybe a touch light. very fine which makes this brew super silky. It is the perfect carbonation level for this beer in my opinion. The beer feel medium to med/full in body.
D - This is a great sipping beer. I am so happy to have had the opportunity to try my first Cigar City beer - Thanks Nelson!!

Cheers to Joey for giving me a bottle. Shared with the Tampa Group.

A: Pours a nice shade of brown with a small head. Okay retention with just a few spots of lace from my pour.

S: Nice sweet malt aromas. Brown sugar and nutty toffee really stand out. The barrel notes are there but not too strong. Nice light oak with notes of vanilla. Very little booze.

T: Sweet on the tongue as well. Nice blend of vanilla and brown sugar up front. Slightly nutty notes can be picked up along with some dark fruit and coconut macaroons. The barrel comes in somewhere in the middle and rides thorugh the finish with notes of oak, vanilla, and booze.

M: Medium in body, nice carbonation. Smooth drinking beer.

D: Pretty darn sippable. Another tasty barrel aged beer from CCB.

750ml bottle
Bottle 22/204 - 2009

A- Poured into a snifter. Pours a dark brown color with a tan colored head that quickly disappears completely.  

S- The aroma is very nice, I could smell this one all night long.  The malt possesses a hint of roastiness along with toffee, hints of coconut, vanilla and some really nice bourbon notes from the barrel aging. Unlike some barrel aged beers, this one is not overpowering. It seems to fit in perfectly.

T- The taste like the aroma has a lot of malt flavors with toffee, caramel and hints of chocolate and coffee flavors as well. The bourbon barrels this was aged in impacts the flavor nicely as well.

M- The mouthfeel is medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

D- Overall, this Campeador is a fabulous beer. I love trying new beers from Cigar City because they are all unique and delicious.

750 ml bottle poured into a tulip. Big thanks to Doug at ccb for hooking me up with this one of a kind brew.

A: deep, dark, rich, brown color. The pour produced one and a half fingers of wet sand colored head that receeds to a thin rim and leaves great lace.

A: the smell is of great burbon, caramel, vanilla, and chocolate malt. Burbon is outstanding and thick.

T: taste is much o the same. The vanilla and caramel is accentuated by the burbon barrels. The richness and earthiness of the brew are top notch. The brew finishes dry with a very pronounced alcohol heat.

M: as with most bba beers the mouthfeel is silky smooth. Heavy body.

D and overall impression: drinkability is on the lower side due to the abv and the burbon aging. Overall this is a great beer. The burbon treatments ccb is handing out are out o this world. Another big kudos to Joey and Wayne for this offering. Skal.
