12oz bottle poured into a Night Shift wine glass.

A~ extremely black, with a small brown head and no lacing.

S~ dark malts flood the nose up front, followed by a little burnt coffee and some nice wood. ending with some sweet citrus.

T~ follows the nose so far but wow this has a lot more to offer! roasty dark malts up front which are quickly taken away by an amazing honey sweetness, followed by a bit of burnt coffee, all leading into a crazy bitter citrus hop explosion! meanwhile everything is coated in cedar, which Cigar City seems to be soo good at! (White Oak, Humidor IPA, etc...) and not a hint of booze!

M~ super smooth and refreshing! i'm gonna blame that on the pilsner malt in this version. really nice carbonation and more stout like than most stouts haha!

O~ this little series is fantastic! i definitely got lucky with the bottles that i received, they must have been aged probably because the hop presence is still in your face which is really surprising considering how old these are. i really love the HF influence here, this is very similar to Jim without the crazy honey (which definitely adds a lot) but just remember i'm a little biased cause i love black IPA's/hoppy black ales. oh! and yup its a HF colab. haha!
