COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Dark Woods is a series of beers that marries dark, imposing beer styles with different woods from around the world to introduce new and unexpected flavors and aromas to Cigar City’s already-unique line-up of ales and lagers.

The third release in Cigar City’s Dark Woods series is a svelt Strong Brown Ale brewed with Golden Promise, a complex base malt from the United Kingdom, and five other special malt varieties for a depth of flavor not commonly found in the style. The addition of experimental hops lends an added dimension of coconut, while an aging process involving African Padauk and Sugar Maple lends vanilla notes and balanced tannins.

yoxik75 (746) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 27, 2017
Piana drobna trwała, kolor brązowy pod światło mętna czerwień. Aromat mnóstwo owoców, wiśnie, poziomki, maliny, jeżyny, lekko koci mocz, ogólnie przyjemny. Smak, wymienione owoce ale dodatkowo wchodzą tu nuty palone, drewna, wanilii, cukru kandyzowanego, ziemiste, taniny jak z gorzkiej herbatki z odrobiną cytryny. W odczuciu średnio słodkie wraz z wysoką długą goryczką sprawia wrażenie lekkiego wręcz wytrawnego piwa. Nasycenie niskie, alkohol ukryty, warte spróbowania nowe doznania smakowe, Bardzo Dobre.
