3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a near black body and a large, thick brown head (tight bubbles, creamy texture). Aromas of brown sugar, nutmeg, molasses, spicy, cinnamon, cedar, earthy, and possibly a touch metallic. Flavors are roasty, a touch of acidic roast as well, earthy, nutty, spices, cedar. Overall quite roasty. Medium bitterness, lasting humidor impressions. Medium bodied, spicy, a bit dry. Spices are a bit bitter and a touch astringent (roast and spice). Medium to slightly higher carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very dark brown pour, with a tan head. Lots of chocolate and cedar, some roasted malt and pumpkin notes. Fairly sweet, with a nice silky milk stout mouthfeel. I liked it, if you like cedar aged stout this is pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Aged on cedar? Wtf, is this CCB?! Pours a dark brown color with a tan head that coasters. Cedar hits the nose right away with subtle spice notes. Cedar, spice, roast, and slighy pumpkin. Lingering bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Overall, not bad but tr cedar just overpowers this one. Not really what I expected.

Bottle. Coffee, bitter chocolate and Ceder. Slightly bitter finish. A nice stout, but I think the ceder was a bit too strong.

Dark brown pour, brown head. Cedar, pumpkin, spice and cocoa aroma. Flavor has lots of pumpkin, some spice, chocolate and the cedar adds a unique element to this beer. Nice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown in color, dense tan head. Reeks of cedar. Very peppery, a bit of pie spices. A little bit of roast, not that much pumpkin. Tastes like cedar, too. Same sort of spice character on the palate. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
1st rating. Growler from the BRUERY taken to a pumpkin beer tasting. Black pour with tan head. Aroma is lots of cedar and some sweet chocolate malts. Taste is mild roast and more cedar with a touch of sweetness. Enjoyable!
