Bottle shared by Jeff at Gregís thanks! Strong wood / cedar nose - dark black pour. Spicy vegetal taste with roasted coffee on the finish. Nice, but really strong wood notes.

750ml bottle thanks Jason. Pour black oily with a thin tan head that fades. Aroma has soy wood peat and roasted malt. Taste is bitter soy wood and peat with slight sour plum and bakers chocolate. Palate is full rich and sticky with a dry finish.

pours jet black with a dark mocha head. Aroma of Cedar, pretty much overpowers the beer. Taste follows, way too much cedar, really overpowering. I love Zhukov and i love the humidor beers but this one is too much

Bottle:   Black, thin dark brown head, little lacing.   Holy fuck that is simply the strongest cedar nose, very fresh, its like somebody cut some decking right in front of me.   Strong cedar on the tongue, pale roastiness, a little over ripened fruit that adds a little sourness.   I sat on this for a while, so I wonder if the stout diminished and the cedar remained.   As is, probably one of the strongest cedar like beers I have had.   I feel a little mixed about it, very unique but the cedar dominates a bit too much.   Moderate stout, but a huge amount of cedar.   Entertaining, but too assertive and overshadows the underlying stout too much.   Damn...

Tap at Cigar City. Snifter pour. Pitch black with a deep beige brown head. Beastly thick chocolate notes. Though quite smooth and creamy too, the alcohol doesnít jump right out at you. Deep cocoa, chocolate milk notes. The mild cedar tones really complement the rich malts. Very chocolate centered, maybe a touch of vanilla, hint of tobacco. This is pretty much Imperial Stout heaven. World Class.

Absolutely love the nose on this - All spicy, herbally and peppery. The woody notes are so enveloping. In the mouth the same flavours pervade and perhaps overawe the original beer. Itís one of those unique beers that whilst you never truly come to grips with it, it certainly leaves an impression.

Pitch black color, dark brown color. Lots of cedar on top of dark chocolate, dark fruit, very hoppy. Alcohol well hidden. I felt the cedar clashed a bit with the imperial stout characteristics. Nice, but not taking me special.

Bottle a while back. I donít feel like getting (or even drinking) another bottle of this so Iím 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 itís 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.
