Notes between smoke and wood that reminds a cigar (maybe a suggestion from the name?) And some nuts. Nice fullfilling body and bitter finish

Canned and I am hoping canned conditioned
Pours a dark brown body with tan head that retreats to the edge of the glass
Aroma is good and I mean good cigar, talking Havana
Flavour is cheap chocolate milkshake
It's an okay flavour a great but a thin mouthfeel

Dark brown with a finger-and-a-half of tan head that leaves strong lacing.

Nutty malts, a hint of chocolate and strong carbonation in the nose. These continue to the taste, along with a touch of dairy mid-palate and a pretty dry finish. Mildly sweet overall.

Creamy mouthfeel with less carbonation than expected.

Sort of middle of the road to me. I don't smoke cigars, but I was expecting more tobacco or earthy flavors here.

From the growler, it pours a lovely brown with a moderate head, quickly diminishing to a ring. Some bread and roasted malt in the nose. ...and mouth with toffee added in. Yum!

12oz can poured into a teku glass, that Florida brew was purchased online.

Tasty stuff! Notes of caramel, coffee and expresso. Definitely a treat. I'll buy more from Cigar city in the future.

Pretty decent beer , had heard a lot of good things about cigar city but this beer certainly isn't mind blowing or anything..

Nice dark color with some light showing thru..

Was expecting a nut brown type ale but this is basically a oatmeal porter or watery stout ..

Decent and drinkable but there are several other beers with this type flavor I would look for before this one again..
