Bottle a while back. I don’t feel like getting (or even drinking) another bottle of this so I’m just gonna do some clarking. I really did not (or have not digged) dig the cedar aging that accompanied the Humidor Series. I understand the concept and to each his/her own, but it’s just not my thing. The cedar leaves a spicy, peppery stamp on the beer that will not come off. It overpowers it and ruins a fine, strong imperial stout in my opinion.

mcberko (5362) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2012
750mL bottle, pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma brings out the cedar above anything, drowning out anything else of the base memory, subtle aromas of smoked meat, pepper and light chocolate malts. Flavour is very pepper and herbally, with the pepper and shitloads of the cedar upfront, dominating everything. After a while, the impie stout characteristic reveal themselves even more, with some roast and chocolate... but the pepper and cedar completely dominate this thing. Solid, though very odd. Not sure the cedar goes well with any style, now having had this with both the the Jai Alai IPA and Marshal Zhukov.

ekoerper (587) - Iowa, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Aroma: chocolate, roast malts and coffee, caramel and sweet notes, firm but not overwhelming cedar. Pours inky black, brown head which dissipates to a lasting thin layer. Big chocolate flavor, lots of toffee, some vanilla, caramel, smooth roast profile, alcohol is well hidden, moderate bitterness, a good dose of cedar. Very full body, low-medium carbonation. Solid brew.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2012
2011 bottling consumed 12/18/11. crazy black with an unreal shade of orange at the edges and a creamy orange brown head. a+f=tobacco, cedar, charcoal, spicy peppery hops, chocolate, light saltiness, tannic and dry-pulling at the cheeks and an ashy finish. thick juicy and sticky but that tannic business keeps it very enjoyable. better than the original....nice. 8+/5/8+/5/17

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2012
750 ml bottle via trade. The tasting group went above and beyond to get the whole Hunahpu’s lineup and a few Zhukov’s, as well. 2011 vintage, labeled "Humidor Imperial Stout". Pours an opaque cocoa brown color with a small brown head. The aroma is an absolute blast of cedar and tobacco, so much cedar that it overwhelms most other notes, but there is some roast and chocolate in there. The flavor is more subdued, with chocolate, tobacco, herbs, and roast in addition to the cedar. Medium-bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel and low carbonation. Really unique imperial stout. Fun to share.

Bottle at rediculous STL gathering. Thanks boys! Pour is pack with small brown head. Aroma is wicked loads of cedar with light roasted malt and faI t chocolate. Love it. Flavor is more roasty than aroma but still so smooth and delightful
