Single Batch brew which was brewed for Redlight Redlight in honor of being the first Cigar City account to pour beer.

A: Evil as all the CCB stouts. This baby is as black as a zebras ass. Nice tight mocha head with okay retention. Nice spotty lace.

S: Tons of roast in this bad boy. Nice espresso roast coffee, and hints of rich bitter chocolate.

T: Wonderful charred malt up front. Rich dark cuban espresso that comes off a bit acidic. The finish is rich roast and a nice bittering from the hops and dark chocolate.

M: Like all CCB stouts rich and bold. Very full bodied as a Mo Fo!

D: Good. This beer is crazy good for something that was destined for the drain. It was made from 2nd runnings of 110k Batch 2. The result is quite nice. Glad you saved this one guys. It was a real treat.
