Thanks to beerisheaven for this bottle of Cigar City, an imprint I'm always happy to see show up on the front stoop. This bottle was picked up in FL, brought to PA, shipped to MN, & driven to WI for consumption. It has frequent flyer miles to burn. 750ML bottle split with my wife.
Pour is dead-on dark black. Nose if rife with chocolate sweentess, the latter of which could either be the malt or the vanilla or both. Either way. Rich.
Moat Water: I'd have happily lapped this up during the seige of Constantinople. The senses are assaulted without quarter: maple, vanilla, & roast/coffee vie for attention at the top of their lungs. WTF? Usually when you read blah blah blah is in this beer there's one dominant commando & the others are riding shotgun. Here, these three are as blatant as a string bikini on a fifty-year old, strong as Ahnold. Seriously. All three blast simultaneously, leaving me befuddled but impressed. Nothing else evident. Nothing else could puncture that triumvirate. Why would it try? Terrifically sweet & easy to glug for a sweet-tooth.
Excellent beer that's like a trebuchet shot to the palate; almost the definition of a modern 'extreme' beer. Yum.

A - Black with some brown around the edges when held up to the light
S - Chocolate and Vanilla bomb. It's like a liquid s'more. A nice roasty aroma and sweetness.
T - Not as smooth on the taste. Slightly overly bitter with the coffee. A nice vanilla kick on the back though.
M - Not as thick as anticipated, but still coats your mouth.
O - Sweet smelling and tasting with lots of roast and vanilla. Nicely done.
