12 oz bottle brought back from Florida.
A- Pours a dark black, slight off-white brownish head. Nice layered lacing.
S- Roasted coffee, chocolate, licorice, hops, a little bit of dark fruits.
T- Coffee, chocolate, stout flavor mixed with a spicey hop flavor. A hybrid of a stout and an IPA. A little bit sweet but also a little bit bitter from the hops.
M- Smooth, well balanced, easily drinkable, alcohol well balanced at 8%.
O- This is my favorite beer I've had so far from CCB- I've had the Jai Lai, Maduro, and Humidor Series IPA (still have Bolita to try). I liked the balance between the coffee, chocolate sweetness of it paired with the hops which creates an interesting taste to the beer. The only downside is that the hops takes a little bit away from the sweetness from the beer, which is why I like regular porters a little bit better.
