Have had on regular pour, nitro growler, and now nitro pour.

A- Black as oil like you would expect from CCB. Very small, tan head forms at the top. Stains my hands like Hunahpu's if you spill a drop.

S- Coffee, chocolate, a spice I am assuming to enhance the coffee flavor.

T- Unreal good coffee flavor. This competes with some of the best coffee stouts out there IMHO. Chocolate adds a nice balance so it isn't too much sweet or acidic coffee.

M- thick and coats perfectly. Carbonation is a little low but still very enjoyable.

O- love this beer and hope it stays on their tap/growler list for some time.

On tap at Coffee District. Served in a Duvel tulip.

Appearance - Really thick black body. Big dark chocolate head. Looks like Zhukov. Impressive.

Smell - Not a ton of aroma. Coffee and dark chocolate malt. Booze.

Taste - Lots of chocolate. Arguably more chocolate than coffee, especially up front. Coffee builds and even becomes a bit acidic in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Very thick. Standard fare for a Cigar City stout, but the acidity cuts back on the mouthfeel.

Overall - The coffee is too acidic for me. Impressive stout otherwise.

Thanks to canadianghetto for sharing!

Pours black as night, with a light brown head with little lace. The aroma hits hard with coffee beans and roasted malts, cocoa, vanilla, and dates. The taste has plenty of medium bitter coffee roast notes, chocolate, toffee, candi sweetness. Pretty thick and chewy, full bodied easy. Overall, pretty great coffee stout!
