On tap at CCB tap room.
A: Pours dark black with a tall tan head. Excellent retention and lace.
S: Lots of roasted malt, chocolate, dark coffee, and smoke.
T: Deep roasted flavor. Lots of roasted malt with a hint of char. Dark dark coffee, mild chocolate malt, and caramel. Mildly earthy with a hint of molasses.
M: Medium in body, smooth, lightly dry finish.
D: Excellent. Damn fine stout, homerun when compared to other stouts of the same style.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
