Tried this last Saturday from a cask release at Cigar City Brewing. Was very excited but I have to say that the cedar was so obnoxiously unbalanced and overwhelming that it ruined the Zhukov's base. Four folks in a row were cringing and turning red, while trying their best to find something positive to say about it (in futile effort really). I gave my glass away after a few swigs to a couple of folks sitting behind me, but not sure if they drank it either.

The surprising piece is that, while Cigar City looks to push the envelope with flavors and creativity (the fantastic Hunaphu, Zhukov's, Jai Alai IPA, etc), they seem to not have the courage to toss something out that tastes horrible. This brew needs to stay retired. I'll be sticking with the regular Zhukov's or looking around for a BA variant.
