Another delicious beer from the crew at Cigar City. The vanilla and espresso belong together as they blend so well. The smooth feel of the beer keeps you coming back for more. I have always enjoyed CCB's ability to mask high alcohol content with great flavor. I mean, you know you are drinking alcohol but its not in your face or spicy. I enjoy that.

Thanks and Cheers

Appearance is oily black with very dark brown head. Spotty lacing left behind. Nose is fantastic with robust coffee beans and light waves of vanilla beans and light maple and oak. Taste is amazing. Rich chocolate and coffee up front, plenty of malt sweetness, and heavy cream and subtle maple. Each flavor takes a turn and layers on top of each other. Delicious. Mouthfeel is thick and lightly carbonated. Definitely a stand out brew.

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

Pours a black color with a layer of tan head that fades quickly. The smell is slightly sweet with notes of dark fruit, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. I would say that where this beer really shines is the taste, which is exactly what I want in a beer. I'm getting a sweet vanilla note with some coffee in the background. I'm also getting some dark fruit in the mix. I think all the flavors go really well together and there is a nice deep taste. The body is very thick with smooth carbonation and a dry finish.
