Cigar City Or

The sibling beer to Either is Or by Cigar City Brewing. Not to go into the depth I did yesterday on collaboration and Black IPAs, I will just mention that Or is both. 🙂

Or is a much smoother and well rounded version of Either. Similar profiles but Or doesn’t have the sweet stickiness of Either. Upon opening the bottle my nose was greeted with a splash of grapefruit hops that was a delight. More inspection found malt: roasted, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, and caramel. All of these were in different proportions but all add a nice complexity to the nose. The mouth followed the nose, creating a delicious drink that had a bit of heat late. Creamy in the mouth with ample carbonation this beer was a pleasure to review. Enjoy!

Aroma: 9 (25%), Taste: 9 (25%), Look: 10 (15%), Drinkability: 9 (35%), Overall: 9.2

Useless Fact: Alfred Hitchcock directed the first talking film ever made in England. It was called Blackmail and was made in 1931.
