Cigar City Life is Like…

Cigar City Life is Like15% ABV. An imperial sweet stout brewed with cherries and cacao nibs, which is then aged in bourbon barrels from Cigar City Brewing in Tampa, FL. This beer is brewed in collaboration with Mikkeller from Copenhagen, Denmark. I landed this puppy through a generous fella who had access to the brewery gems. Pours oily black with a creamy brown head that leaves decent lacing throughout. The aroma is loaded with luscious, lightly tangy cherries and thick chocolate that follow up with figs, molasses, malt and vanilla. Those aromatic qualities are then followed up by a sweet flavor with some more chocolate, cherries, malt sugar, and mild alcohol. Full bodied with good carbonation. This is a very good lightly chewy beer that exhibits modest warmth, rich chocolate, ripe cherries – indulgent and decadent, yet still well balanced!
