3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a wonderful totally black color with a large brown head. A huge perfumy cedar nose. The flavor is a mix between massive cedar and more traditional sweet stout elements, sweet chocolate, ash, a bit of caramel. Due to this mix it seems a bit like a CDA. Very smooth and good. I enjoy the humidor stuff.

Poured dark black at the brewery with aromas of light roast, campfire, malt, light chocolate and some cedar. Flavors were the same balanced overall with roast and malt up front followed by some cedar and finished with some light smoke. Solid imperial stout.

black, large tan ring clings to the glass. Nose is immediately cumin.. WTF? Faint char and smoke but not right. Stale flavor, empty char, huge humidor but nothing backing, no compliment. Bit of chocolate and spent grain through the muddy end, slick and soft on the palate.

Draft at the Sybarite Pig. Snifter pour was very dark and opaque. Decent white head with lacing. Some nice aroma of humidor style cedar spirals. You get some other aromas like roasted malts, chocolate, etc. The taste was similar. I found that the cedar was kind of overwhelming. I LOVE White Oak IPA and Humidor Jai Alai from CCB. But Stout? Not so much.

750ml bottle pours a hazy, dark brown with some clumpy beige head. Nose has a weird mix of almonds and nail polish, smoke is there too, wood, caraway seeds. Flavor has a bit of cumin, heavy walnut skin, smoke, pencil lead, malt. Full, sticky finish.
