4.48/5 rDev -0.9%

A- Jet black like the other CCB stouts. No carbonation whatsoever. Ring around the glass is transparent.
S- Chocolate, booze, cherries, milk chocolate.
T- Milk chocolate followed by booze and cherries. The taste is more muted than what I thought given what it took to get this bottle.
M- Thinner than Zhukov, probably about what BCBS is. Creamy texture.
O- I thought it would be better, but I am glad I got to try it! I know that I still rated it high, but I love many CCB brews and rate them even higher.
**Edit, deeper into the bottle now. This is a delicious brew**

4.45/5 rDev -1.5%

Last beer of an insane weekend of tasting and reviewing. My cousin Sonny shared yet another great brew. Fully reviewed to notes.
A- Alright, another insanely thick, pitch black motor oil CCB stout. The pour of their big stouts is just a signature at this point. Viscous, oily black with a dark mocha head. The head reaches a finger or so with decent retention. A small ring drops some nice legs and a few spots of lace.
S- Pretty much a fifty fifty blend of stout and the cherries. The cherry feels natural and more flesh pith than in your face, it blends into the dark roast malts quite a bit. Rich roast malts, chocolate, raisins and caramel malt sweetness beyond that.
T- As with the Hunaphus variations and Zhukov's, Cigar City somehow seems to find how to make a thicker and richer stout that has ever existed before. Decadent cocoa powder, heavily roast chocolate malts, raisins, caramel and a large sweetness. And then the cherry, it brings pith and flesh of cherries somehow feeling natural and just earthy. The barrels are a bit subdued but with time the come out more and more. Nice medium toast oak, vanilla and whiskey join the party and create a dessert of a beer.
MF- Chewy and ultra thick bodied. This brew takes on an oily texture that becomes a tiny bit creamy with agitation. Slight cherry tartness and dark bitter cocoa powder lingers on the palate with a moderate alcohol warmth.
Multi-dimensional beast. Cherry and whiskey barrels compliment another insanely large CCB base stout.
