Cigar City Café Con Leche

Brewery: Cigar City Brewing
Country: USA
ABV: 6%
Style: Milk / Sweet Stout
Other Notes: 28 IBUs. Sweet Stout with coffee & cacao nibs

Brewer Description: (from bottle) This beer is made with bold, strong coffee beans to emulate the most characterful Cuban espresso and lactose, a milk sugar that adds sweetness, body and flavors reminiscent of scalded milk. We’ve also added cacao nibs to further enhance its satisfying chocolate quality. Despite its assertive flavors and full body, our Sweet Stout is deceptively low in alcohol, making it the perfect accompaniment to a late-morning plate of eggs, bacon and tostadas.
