This poured out as a nice deep brown color with a moderate tan head on top. The retention and lacing are very good on this beer. The smell of the beer is robust and hoppy. The taste is bitter, plenty of piney hops in there with a chocolatey roast flavors in the finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and dry, nice bitterness also. Overall this beer is basically a Black IPA but very good regardless.

Bottle from Total Wine in Tampa. From notes.
A - Poured black with a two finger brown head that was thick and creamy. Good carbonaiton coming up. Great lace rings and a film of retention.
S - Yup this was robustly hopped. Vanilla, cocoa beans, coffee bean fruits?
T - Nice hop profile. Nice and roasty, citrus and lot's of sweet malt. Some dark fruit, roast, and light coffee.
M - Good carbonation, medium body, dry and slighty bitter finish. Lacking a little body.
O/D - Complex and very drinkable. A tasty, hoppy porter. Pleaseure to sip and the 8% is well masked.

A- Very dark brown body that lets no light through. Frothy mocha-colored head that stays around and leaves an absolute mess of sticky lacing all over the glass.
S- Lots of roasty malt, hints of bitter coffee, an earthy/herbal hop aroma, some grainy bread aromas.
T- Leads off with lots of roasted malt flavor, with the hops coming through in the middle. The earthy and herbal flavors come through along with a hint of pine. The finish is roasty with lots of bitterness.
M- Comes through full at the beginning with medium carbonation. The middle has a slight carbonation tingle and the finish is dry.
O- This is a great porter with big flavors. The hops and roasty malts compliment each other very nicely.

Always good to try another Cigar City offering.
Pours dark brown with a thin, quickly receding head. Typical porter look but I wouldn't describe it as robust. Smells more of dried fruit than your typical porter. Some hints of chocolate, cherries, malt, and a little smokiness. Taste is interesting, bittersweet chocolate and heavy on the dried fruits. Finishes with smoke, charcoal, and raisin. Nice flavor but definitely not a classic porter in the sense. Mouthfeel is thin and light bodied, very little carbonation. Soft on the palate. Overall another excellent CCB offering. I love everything this brewery produces and this one is no exception.
