UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 Cigar City takes NYC event at Rattle íNí Hum. On tap. Zesty, best version of the winter warmer. All black with no head. Strong taste, its sweet and spicy, offset with hops in the secondary, and has a spicy fresh smell.

Tap at Rattle N Hum. Very muddy pour. Lots of bright coriander in the nose. Sweet and chewy with a lot of fruitiness. Flavour of coriander and a touch of of the sweet fruity base. Meh.

On tap at Rattle N Hum for their Cigar City event. Pours a hazy ruby brown with a thin white head. Iíll admit that I have probably an unnatural love for coriander. By far one of my favorite spices. This had a gorgeous coriander aroma right up front. Really an amazing smell, sweet malt and spice. Malty, smooth. Light booze on the finish along with a light bitterness.

blipp (6033) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Draft at RnH. Pours deep amber brown with a thin head. A rush of coriander in the aroma, citric hops and a light malty sweetness. The coriander really helps to bring out hoppy flavors that arenít as prominent in the other WWWW varieties. Light sweet malty notes as well.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Draft. Pours a mahogany body with an off white head. Citrus, wheat, lemon drops, a modest coriander tone and a mild hoppy spiced finish. Decent.

jredmond (5300) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Draft at rattle n hum at cigar city event. One of the final brews of the evening. Very delicious with notes of orange zest and coriander, another brew I couldnít believe was +10%.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 7, 2011
Tap at RnH. Pours extreme hazed- muddy water - yeasty bomb- no head. Aroma is coriander bomb- orange spices, salt, earthy dust, caramel malts, toast, toffee, spice balls and perfume with grass. Flavor is orange zest, cedar, coriander seeds, spice, pepper, fruity bubble gum, earth, spruce needles, muddy yeast, dough, grass, overkill on the citrusy orange coriander mixes excessively with cedar oil. Astringent in the end.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Tap @ Rattle N Hum. Poured a hazed brown color. The coriander was big. Fairly citrus and floral aroma with a caramel malty base. Big coriander spice flavor that covers most of the malt and its sweetness. The spice helps give balance but then almost goes too much the other way. Medium to full bodied and warming.

dmac (3999) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Draft at the CCB event at Rattle n Hum. Poured a very ugly mudy brown body that looks like it was poured out of a dump bucket at the end of a tasting. The aroma was nicely complex with notes of perfume, flowers, coriander, syrup, honey, citrus rind all coming together in a cloying sweet aromatic enigma. Medium bodied with small bubbly carbonation and a slight touch of alcohol heat. The flavor is much like the aroma with lots going on....citrus fruit, especially tangerine, honey, perfume, lavender, coriander, wood and grains. Very nice beer and the coriander was not over the top like most winter warmers but more appropriately used as a complimentary aroma/flavor.

Location: On tap at Rattle íN Hum, 2/20/10

Aroma: Coriander is quite noticeable, spice, caramel, citrus, raisin
Appearance: Mahogany-brown color, off-white head
Flavor: Lots of coriander and spice, more citrus hoppy then the regular
Palate: Creamy and smooth, mild alcohol burn
Overall Impression: This was pretty cool. I tried the regular WWWW first, and then moved on to this one and the Humidor on my next trip to RnH. You can definitely feel the difference that the coriander brings to this one. Pretty good stuff. Quite different then the regular, but the score comes out similarly.
