Bottle from 2013. Pours dark opaque black, small beige head, dissipates fairly quickly, decent lacing. Aroma is blackstrap molasses, licorice, woodiness, cocoa. Flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter, rich and full of flavor; molasses, wood, cocoa, licorice dominate here as well. Would not guess cedar per se. Medium plus body, soft mouthfeel. Solid.

Sampled from a 750 ml bottle from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, earthy bitterness, cedar wood, some resiny character, still a bit hot, caramel, some spicy character, I would like another shot at this.

"As the name suggests, this is an imperial version of a black ipa, aged on cedar. fairly fresh, the cedar comes through more than subtly, but the beer is well balanced between dark malts and molasses, citrus and pine, and cedar. Quite tasty and very aromatic. A little on the rich side, though not hot. Very good."

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast, smoke, and dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with sweet roast, smoke, chocolate, tobacco and light boozy finish. Very impressive.

Lovely, rich black ale with strong chocolate nose. Distinct smokey cedar flavor from the spiral aging. A big body and a thick, creamy brown head.

adnielsen (10445) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle @ Greg’s dump. Thanks to markwise for sending. Pours a deep brown appearance with a dark brown head. Aroma has the characteristic very strong and spicy cedar aroma. Some chocolate and a touch of smoke. Nice body. Rich dark chocolate and a touch of caramel before the spicy cedar onslaught. Finishes with a fuck load of cedar. Pretty good but a little one dimensional.

A great extra from a trade. Dark brown, thick and heavy, luscious and silky, rich chocolate, wood and pine. Delicious.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Black pour with a tan head. Fairly hoppy aroma with plenty of cedar. Hops come through in the flavor as well, with a nice roasty malt backbone to go with it. Cedar comes through in the finish as well. Abv is well-hidden too. A nice offering.

Sampled at esbls. Black beer that looks cool. a spicy nose with earth and chocolate. Wow. This grabs the taste buds. Cedar is huge. So much brightness. Dark fruit and softer wood. Grape jelly. Truthfully there is so much going on. I would not want a lot of this but it is a lotof fun to sample.
