Candela (Rye Barleywine): Collaboration: The collaborative efforts between Cigar City Brewing and Green Flash Brewing eventually went down a path with the idea that the resulting brew should not only be a very special brew but also one that will go nicely with a great American cigara green wrapper Candela.

Technical Description: So massive is this Rye Barleywine after a long and intensive boil that it envelops the 75 IBU of hops given it. The super rich qualities of this brew come from the best British floor-malted, pale barley available. Top quality specialty malts that add to its opulent body include British Crystal and German Rye. Spanish cedar lends wood aging with a depth of dark mahogany and a hint of Szechuan peppercorn spice that cuts the luxurious malt sweetness. With a beer this rich and decadent you may indeed, Have A Cigar. Cheers from, Chuck Silva & Wayne Wambles

Leighton (20826) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2016
Draft at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014 - Red Session. Pours clear amber-gold with a tan foam topping. Big cedar aroma - with little else. Medium to heavy sweet flavour, with strong and drying cedar wood, light honey, some bread, toffee, grass. Medium to full in body with fine carbonation. Warming and sticky in the finish, with continuing heavy cedar. The cedar really lingers, too. A bit too much cedar character, really.

(En ft la brasserie au lancement de la Silva Stout): Hyper moelleux, figues, fraises, caramel et une cascade de pruneaux dans une certaine lourdeur des malts. Pas le meilleur ami de la buvabilit.

cobaink2 (645) - seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 3, 2015
First thing is that the nose of this smells like patulli maybe from the oak it was aged on not sure. But it is quite complex with a lot of herbal flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
