Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Growler, courtesy SoLan. Pours a hazy, ruddy, dark chestnut brown color with a small but steady head of smooth, dark khaki colored foam. Wet, splotchy flares of lacing mark the glass. The nose definitely shows heavy influence from the cedar, showing its signature oily, peppery, woody notes atop a base of bronzed toffee, caramel, brown sugar, and dry cocoa. Hints of orange peel and pine work nicely with the cedar. Flavors are largely the same, with the toffee showing a bit of a burnt edge to the sweet, dark caramel and cocoa. Things delve deeper into a nutty, fruity realm, and everything is brought together by the zesty, peppery cedar and citrus hops. The palate is big, warming, and slightly sticky on the finish, sporting less than moderate carbonation along the way. Very good stuff. The cedar really changes things, though I feel that I like the base beer just as well.

Very nice beer and perfect for winter drinking. Beer is an Amherst color with a minimal light brown head. Smell is very seasonal and inviting. Excellent balance between spices and fruit and is not at all over bearing in either category. Cigar City is one of the few breweries that can preform that tight rope act without going to far in one direction or the other. It has a great ABV and is a wonderful drink on a snowy day. Must have if you can find it. Still cant believe these Tampa guys can produce such amazing beers!

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Growler. Poured a slightly hazy reddish brown color with a thin egg shell color head and nice lacing. Nose is intense cedar, caramel, toffee, malt, and citrus. Smooth medium body. Flavor pretty sweet with solid cedar spiciness, some roast and booze come through as does some citrus and pine but flavor is really dominated by the cedar. Finished sweet and spicy.

daknole (9101) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2009
Brown. Beige head. Citrus hops, caramel, light cedar, light spice. Flavor is hoppy and lightly spicy. Cedar wood shows itself and blends well with the citrus and sweetness.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Growler… This beer rocks!… Cloudy burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The nose provides lots of caramel and toffee flanking slighter - but no less fulfilling - notes of cracked black and white pepper and a rumor of coffee. Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. Sweet caramel and toffee deliciousness with some nice cedary notes thrown into the mix along with a whisper of acidity. There’s some really nice bitterness here, but the sweetness prevails, as it should. Lengthy, malty-sweet finish. Thanks to SoLan for sharing his growler of this world class beer!

@RLRL with Orlando group-thanks to SoLan-1QT growler-pours a dissipating light tan head and hazy amber color. Aroma is smooth cedar, medium malt. Taste is cedar, earthy, some alcohol, medium malt, some pepper. OK effervescence.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Growler from CCB. Pours a dark chocolate brown with reddish highlights and an off-white one finger head that settles slowly. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of spice, caramel, toffee, light grapefruit, cedar, pepper, nuts, some light brown sugar. Flavor is sweet and malty with the cedar spice upfront but floral hops, chocolate, brown sugar and light caramel and toffee flavors as well. Medium body with a lightly spicy and chocolaty finish. I think this one is second only to the IPA in the Humidor Series. Wonderful ale.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2009
thanks to Solan for bringing in a growler straight from the brewery! Pepper cedar nose with spicy hops and caramel malts. Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Spicy cedar, white pepper, caramel malts, with traces of citrus hops in there as well. Very smooth mouthfeel and great spicy flavors. Excellent!
