The aroma of the herbs. The taste is of herbs and dark coffee. Okay bitterness that fills the mouth forever. You can drink it but tastes and smells very much. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Pours pitch black with nice head. Aroma: fresh pepper dominates, cedar wood, chocolate in the background. Taste: cedar wood, chocolate and coffee, with pepper in the palate. Very original, not a typical imperial stout, but I like it. The pepper could be less dominating.

Tom’s bottle share. Poured into a small snifter...brown with a mild head. Aroma is BIG BIG BIG cedar with spices and chcolate. Did I say Cedar? The taste is CEDAR! SPices, dark chocolate, roasted malts and CEDAR! Almost too much for me. As it warmed it was better. Big mouth, potent almost sappy finish. Cedar!

In taste dark chocolate mixed with cedar, coffee, licorice and again pepper in the finish. Full bodied, oily and smooth on the palate, good bitterness in the finish, the beer is not very sweet. Great beer, very nicely mixed cedar and pepper, ecerything fits just right.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared 22 with Zach, pours a dark black pour with a Java head. Nose is malt with strong cedar and pepper. Taste is very strong cedar and peppery on the palate. The cedar wood beers from CCB are quite distinctive and are either acquired or take it or leave it. Worth a try ! The finish is moderately long , malty without any real sweetness and ends with a forest of cedar. Quaff Score 7 / 10

Aroma is spices, chocolate and dark malts, kind of similar to a Mexican stout. The flavor is spices, garden vegetables, chocolate, dark malts and a warning/slightly sour finish.

I like pepper. Luckily. This is a pretty different beer but in a really cool way. So many different flavours in a serious stout - that work. I get the obvious pepper, dark chocolate, wood, spices but also some eucalyptus or mint or maybe new tennis ball haha. I like it
