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!

Enjoyed a snifter @ WOB Dr. Phillips Orlando.
Appearance jet black holding up a paper thin tan head. Apparent thick viscosity when swirled in the glass. Classic motor oil presentation.
The dark espresso aroma is the big initial hit on the nose. This is quickly followed by aromatic notes of cocoa, dark roasted malts, raisins and figs.
Taste is simply outstanding. First sip approaches some cloying sweetness for a moment but just a touch of bitter dark roast coffee bean and malt slips in behind the sweetness. Fantastic balance of the bitter-sweet qualities. Finishes with a mildly sweet dark dried fruit and cream ending.
Mouthfeel is slick and smooth; thick and chewy. Perfect for this style of beer.
This is not one to miss!!
