Notes / Commercial Description:
This is a heavily hopped high gravity porter featuring the hopping levels of an India Pale Ale with the rich and roasty malt profile of a robust porter. Heavy hop rates, while uncommon in today's porters were not unknown historically and recipes from the British porter producers of the 1800's evidence hopping rates far in excess of what is common for the style today.

A: Jose Marti is nearly black, with garnet highlights penetrating only when the brew is held to the light. Head is a touch weak, but overall this brew looks pretty enticing.

S: Deep black chocolate, and touch of espresso, and a hint of walnut create a rich bouquet.

T: Slightly sweet malt is balanced by bitter dark chocolate and coffee, topped off by a touch of Pacific Northwest hops. this brew is incredibly enjoyable.

M: Full bodied and chewy. The texture perfectly complements the richness in flavor.

D: A fantastic brew from the South's greatest asset, Cigar City. This is definitely worth a try if you can get your hands on it, as it is one of the better American Porters out there.

Poured from bomber into tulip. Four fingers of dark khaki head. Dissapates slowly. Smells of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and a sliight hop sweetness. Taste is chocolate and earth. Slight hop presence dissernable behind all that malt. Great finish. Very clean, easy drinking dark brew with great mouthfeel.

Poured a 12oz bottle, dated 8/2011, into my DFH sniffer. Appearance is very pretty, dark with a big head. Smell is similar to a chocolate cake. After a few big sips, I declare this is one of the best porters I have had to date. Very complex, tons of chocolate, smokey malts, and a hint of coffee. Glass is coated with tons of sticky lacing. This tastes like a stout, but drinkablity is amazing with ABV at 8%. I wish I had better access to Cigar City beers, as this would be a staple in my fridge.
