Florida Beer Friday: Cigar City Dioscorides

dioscorides-web.pngBig news everyone: Cigar City Brewing has made a beer exclusively for select ABC Fine Wine & Spirits Brew Stop locations. And guess what? It’s available starting today.

Beer: Dioscorides

Style: Crown Royal Rye Whisky Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout

Look: Deep, dark, nearly black color

Aroma: Intense dark chocolate, plum and molasses

Flavor: The herbaceous spice of the caraway seeds is evident on the palate, but complemented by licorice, molasses, spice, vanilla and a light smokiness from the barrels

Finish: Smooth and balanced, this brew finishes with an expectation to refill your glass–but be careful, it’s a big beer that sits at 12% ABV

You may have had Dioscorides in the past, but this version was aged in Crown Royal Rye Whisky barrels for added spice. Get your growler filled at select Brew Stop locations today! Call ahead or reach out to your beer consultant on Twitter to see if your local ABC has it on tap. Cheers!
