Pours a mahogany color with a tan head. The smell is roasted malt, citrus, cat urine. The taste is citrus, roasted malt, fruit, caramel... Quit sweet. The body is medium with finely constructed carbonation. Though a bit sweet it is nice and tasty.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2013
I will learn to not order one of these humidor series one day. The base beer is covered in a straight up cedar taste. Mech stronger than normal Spanish cedar actually used in humidors. This smells like the cedar used in construction. The aromatic cedar that you would not want to put in your mouth. And with good reason. The aroma was a bit misleading. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this on draft. Pours a amber/Red color with a white head. Hello Cedar! Can I have some more Cedar? Smells like a cigar box. Nice caramel nose in the back. Nice body similar to the regular version. The Cedar does not disappear on the tongue. A little roasty as well. Solid Humidor creation of Tocobaga

This beers amazing!! Dry hopped pint at the brewery. Deep golden amber with light off white head. Nose is caramel malts and hops, citrus and a little spice. Flavor is amazing, hops come right through, citrus. Bold amber and caramel malts with good cedar background. This beer is great all over.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Draft at Cigar City during Hunahpu Day 2012. Pours a dark amber/chestnut brown color with burnt orange hues and a two finger yellowish beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing are left behind. Slightly smokey aroma with lots of  toasted oak and cedar along with light fruit, citrus and pale malt.  Hints of apple and other light fruit along with citrus rind, earthy, piney hops and pale biscuity malt. Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a decent cedar presence up front that doesn’t overpower the other flavors.  Lots of dry cedar/wood  countered by citrus/light fruit notes and biscuit malt.  Some of the humidor series beers are overly dry and taste like toothpick but the hop and malt flavors are still prominent in this one.  Some dry, resinous hop bitterness but not overdone with some citrus and light fruit character balancing things out.  Subtle pale malt with touches of biscuit and graham cracker.  Nicely done, well balanced beer with the cedar flavor subtly integrated.

Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Twas’ able to get a small pour before it kicked. Unfortunately the cedar aging took away that spicy hoppiness I’d hoped for. Instead (and it’s still pretty damn good) you get a light touch of honey among some fresh hop flavor and grapefruit tartness. The finish is dry and clean, not giving a hint of the generous alcohol level.
