Pours dark brown with a stupidly massive tan head.
Nose shows hazelnut praline, soft roasted malt and chocolate fudge.
More nutty and roasted grainy notes as flavours but it seems a bit light on in terms of malt.
Too highly carbonated, lower carbonation might let the flavours shine a bit more too.

12 oz. can poured into a Duvel tulip (canned on 6/11/13)

A: Pours a very deep brown that is almost black with a 1/4 an inch head that diminishes quickly.

S: Nice mellow scents like a nice breakfast of dark chocolate oatmeal with black coffee that has some dulce de leche creamer in it.

T: Kind of tastes like it smells but the flavors are even more subdued. There is no wow or punch here. Just not a fan, no flavor steps out and says here I am, it is all just a swirl of bland flavors. All I get is this weird oat flavor that kills all the other notes.

M: Even carbonation throughout that is pretty smooth with only a few bumps, that aren't really noticeable.

O: This sounded pretty good, but it isn't very interesting.

Poured from can dated June 18, 2015. Consumed on July 28, 2015. Appearance is dark brown with tan head and is nearly opaque. Smell is very subdued. Beer smells a little nutty. Taste and mouthfeel are outstanding. Drinkability is dangerously high. Highly recommended like most cigar city beers. Cheers.
