I was fortunate to spend a little time at JDub's the day the Cigar City crew was there to brew this collab, which they described as a hoppy black lager. Though I am a little skeptical that it's 6.66 percent alcohol, though I get the reason behind the number. Can they brew precisely enough to reach the hundredths of a percentage point? Of course now I sound like a stick in the mud.

It's almost totally black with a short off-white head.

Nice hoppy aroma mixed with a hint of coffee.

The flavor is very good: Citrus hop flavors mix with coffee and chocolate flavors and big bitterness.

It's quite hefty in body. Very nice.

Overall an excellent beer. Not sure that it fits into a style, but so what? Very limited and draft only, so try it while you can.
