COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Humidor Series is a rotating offering of Cigar City Brewing beer aged on cedar. Cedar has a more subtle effect on beer than more traditional woods like oak. But, we think that once you taste it you’ll agree that cedar deserves a place alongside oak in the brewer’s wood-aging toolbox.

Hazy red - brown beer. Low carbonation. Surprising nose of fresh raspberry which carries over to the taste but only in the undertone. The taste on top is mild dark malt and strong spicy cedar with a distinct smoky note. Some nuts buried in here as well. The most cedar dominant beer I’ve had. So far!

Entering old rates. Reprend la base maltée et rillé de la bolita avec un profile épais chocolaté, le tout est traiter avec le cèdre qui donne ce profile particulier épicé en bouche allant vers un poivre léger le tout sur une note rappée d’écorce. Le cèdre est modéré sans prendre le dessus et laisse ample place au côté malté de Bolita pour rester au devant. Sympa, mais je pense que Bolita ets bien comme elle est sans ce rajout.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
Handbottled. A slightly hazy deep red beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has strong notes of cedar wood as well as medium notes of caramel, and malt. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of cedar wood and medium notes of caramel, malt, and a bit of roasted malt, leading to a dry woody - cedar like finish. The body is light. Thanks a lot MadsBerg for sharing.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2009
Hand bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of madsberg. Pours a clear orangey brown with a small, rough off-white head. Very spicy sweet chili-like aroma - again must be the cedar. Medium body, sweet caramel and nuts, a little low in carbonation. Again dominated by these amazingly interesting and exotic cedar accents. Some alcohol burn in the finsh. 161209

Had this on tap at the Kickback’s Gastro Pub in Jacksonville, FL for the CCB tasting night. Except this version was aged on cigar box cedar and Johnny Walker Blue Label oak chips. Pours a murky deep brown with a thin, yellow head. Retarded big aroma of cedar cigar box, whiskey spiciness. Bit of orange peel and dark chocolate too. Taste is similar with an extremely dry body. Light mouthfeel. Very interesting. Yum. Aftertaste is only weak point. Not much whiskey or barrel flavor. Lots of resiny, citrusy dry cedar.
