Cigar of the Week Pairing with Ryan from Sweetbrier in The Landings:
Craft Beer of the Week: Monday Night Brewing Company's Fistful of Cake Milk Stout
Craft Beer Notes: "Inspired by the classic opera cake, this imperial stout is thick and decadent. We used coffee and a budget-breaking amount of vanilla beans to complement the roasty and rich base stout. Channel your inner 1-year old, and go to town on this one. 9.3% ABV." ~ Monday Night brewing Company

It’s your local Cigar Estanquero here bringing you Caldwell’s The king is Dead! This Dominican negrito wrapper with Dominican long fillers and a corojo binder is a true Dominican puro. But the taste and aroma is anything but.
I paired this cigar with Monday Night Brewing “Fistful of Cake” for a few reasons, so here goes!
1. FFOC is a vanilla bomb imperial stout. Coffee beans and just the right amount of thickness in the beer to make it feel like a dessert in liquid form.
2. TKIS has notes of coffee and dark chocolate flavors with hints of cedar and spice on the retro. The smoothness of this cigar really blends perfectly with the stoutness of the FFOC.
Come grab a stick at SweetBriar and head down to the Office Bar and Grill and pair these together for a delightful experience.
