Good To The Last Drop

Cubano Espresso is a java lover's dream

There was a 1970s commercial from Maxwell House stating that their coffee was “good to the last drop.” And there’s an ale from Cigar City that lives up to this adage as well.

Cigar City Cubano Espresso (Cigar City Brewing; Tampa, FL; American Brown Ale; ABV: 5.5), an offering from the brewery’s Maduro series, is a remarkable brown ale. Chocolate in color, it has considerable notes of expresso in the nose and throughout the taste. The bounty of expresso is complimented by caramel malt, roasted nuts, and vanilla spices with a rich coffee presence at the finish. Cubano Expresso gets better with each sip, and as the beer warms, the flavors intensify and the wonderful complexity of this ale is really drawn out.

The coffee-centric backbone and full-bodied flavor of Cubano Expresso makes it an exceptional beer. It’s truly “good to the last drop.”
