Earthy wood tones and baking spice sit prominently on the aroma, with espresso beans, dark chocolate, and blackstrap molasses adding dimension. Velvety and rich on the palate, this beer’s amalgam of treacle, cacao, toffee, and brown sugar is formidable enough to sustain pronounced assertions of wood tannins, bourbon spice, and a warming alcohol presence.
Steeped in the unique culture and history of Tampa, Florida, Cigar City Brewing began handcrafting award-winning beer in 2009. Cigar City Brewing’s ales and lagers bring to mind the sun and citrus for which Florida is known, while taking cues from the cigar industry upon which Tampa was built. Behind all of Cigar City Brewing’s liquid is the philosophy that quality is achieved by giving first rate ingredients to first rate people in a space where they are free to pursue their passion.
