UPDATED: SEP 11, 2012 New rating: Cask at Pony Bar, NYC. Cedar aroma, woody, malty, hay, apples, grass, pear, some roasted notes, citrus. Such a change from the bottle version. Cedar flavor, fruity, hoppy, woody, some grass, hay, pine apple, grapes, pear. Old rating: 2.4. Bottle at CCB Day, Sätila 2012-07-07. Hazy golden beer with a small offwhite head. Cedar aroma. Way too much cedar. Hoppy and fruity. Cedar flavor, again way too much. Hoppy and fruity once you manage to get behind the massive wall of cedar. Why mess up a good beer!

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2011
Bottle. Orange golden color. White pepper, cedar wood and apricot in the aroma. peppery oily hopbitter flavor with loads of cedar wood, white pepper and apricot. The aftertaste is that like a wooden cigarbox. Well made and satisfyingly balanced. Very dry mouthfeel.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Zu Beginn ist der Hopfen weich aber bestimmt, er weist deutliche Holznoten auf, dunkel, vollmundig. Die Intensität ist erwähnenswert, da das Bier keinesfalls alkoholisch wirkt, selbst die Bitterkeit ist äußerst moderat. Stattdessen machen sich intensiv blumige Noten breit, die auch nach geraumer Zeit nicht weichen sondern sich sogar noch ausbreiten. Bananige Nuancen sind hier ebenso vertreten wie Orangen- und Melonennuancen. Perliger, feinhopfiger Abgang mit weiterhin intensivem, nie aber aufdringlichem Hopfen. Der Nachgeschmack zieht sich übermäßig lange, ohne trocken zu sein – zuletzt noch einmal holzig, wenig Grapefruit. Unglaublich harmonisch – ein mehr oder weniger perfektes Bier. 10/14/14/15/14/15

750 ml bottle at DC local tasting. Courtesy of our generous host nimbleprop, and I liked this one better than he did. Dark golden color, edge head. Aroma of giant black pepper, smoke and ash. Taste is black pepper with a coriander finish. Interesting and unique.

750 ml botle poured a hazy golden amber with a lasting off white head. Aromas of biscuit, orange, pink grapefruit, cedar and light pine. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of biscuit, grapefruit, orange and cedar with a smooth lingering bitter finish. One of the better Cigar City beers I’ve tried!

Bov (9325) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 19, 2011
from erzbierschof.ch - pours a hazy dark bronze-orange colour under a little persistent beige foam left; nice lacework; a solid spicy and piney aroma with hoppy notes of grapefruit; full-bodied and sticky yet velvety palate; very spicy and pretty hot hoppy aftertaste with notes of pine needles, grapefruit and marzipan - absolutely marvelous beer, robust, complex and balanced
