This was called Patio Tools when I reviewed it. They changed the name to Hilsborough River when they made it a year-round beer.
Pours totally black with a big brown head that doesn't vanish.
Slight sour aroma, with bigger notes of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate.
The taste is quite good. Rich roasted flavors mix with just a bit of dryness. This doesn't have the sour/tart notes that Guinness does: Patio Tools is much better.
Creamy and super-smooth body. This is a very easy beer to drink
This is a very fine beer that shows that Cigar City can make great "regular" beers.
Serving type: growler

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.
Serving type: nitro-tap
