On draft at Kickbacks Gastropub.

Nice, dark, black pour. Mocha/khaki head, pillowy with a solid 2 fingers of head.

Coffee, licorice and roasted nose with a pleasant dryness towards the finish.

Licorice, roasted coffee beans and a bit of chocolate in the finish. A strange character to the mid body, almost...funked. Sigh...

Prickly mouthfeel. Some signs of souring.

Overall, great beer, but I feel this is another soured beer from Cigar City. Shame.

Review from notes at Cigar City's taproom on 9/9/11 for Firkin Friday.

Draft poured into a 4 oz. sampler glass.

Appearance: Poured a coffee black with a light tan head. Nice lacing.

Smell: Coffee, roasted malt, chocolate and a touch of black licorice.

Taste: Coffee and licorice up front followed by roast malt and dark chocolate in the middle before ending with a touch of hops at the finish. Aftertaste is roasted and bitter.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation.

Drinkability: Good drinkability. Goes down smooth.

Overall: Very good beer overall. This would be great on a cold winter evening.
