Cigar City Brewing Brew Pub - on-tap

A - stars out beautiful with the nitro. Settles to perfectly balck with finger of tan, silky head.

S - roasty malts and chocolate. Some disntant espresso. Sweet and bitter both hit the nose. Awesome here.

T - silky chocolate and espresso both hit the palate so smoothly. Bitterness is balanced so nicely with sweetness.

M - where do I start. Silky. Smooth. Velvety. Drinkable is an understatement. Awesome.

O - man this is killer. Dry Irish Stouts aren't usually knocking my socks off, but this absolutely does.

Pours black with a half-finger of creamy tan head frozen in time. It has a milk chocolate smell with toasted oats, pecans, and cream, but I only pick up on those flavors if I stretch myself -- it's all rather subtle. The taste brings cocoa powder, coffee, burnt toast, and bitter hops. It goes down silky smooth with a super dry finish and is on the lighter side of medium in body.
