Found this one in the cellar that I COMPLETELY forgot about, was quite a little surprise. Doesn't have a year on it, but I know I got it in a trade 4(ish) years ago.

750 ML bottle that was poured into a Duvel Tulip style glass. Coming out of the bottle it's sort of muddy puddle brown but collects in the glass and rises up to be dark brown/amber/red color with more red highlights along the sides. Particles floating around in there, they settle at the bottom after a while. Nice creamy kaki colored head with various sized but mostly small bubbles. Really nice in the lacing department. Overall a pretty good looking beer.

Smell is really good. Lots of citrus, and it runs deep. When cold it's definitely noticeable and gets stronger as it warms up. Lots of toffee, molasses, dark dehydrated fruit, and even some leather and tobacco. Bready, malty, hoppy, spicy, and a little earthy all in one.

Taste is on par with the smell, deep and complex. Citrus is strong while being both sweet and natural flavors. Slightly citrus bready and maybe even some marmalade. There's strong flavors of toffee, molasses, chocolate and I'd say even some maple. Still pretty hoppy after all these years which I'm most impressed by. Not sure what the combination is but there's the above mentioned citrus and some pine notes.

Mouthfeel is good. Has a strong, nice lingering flavor. As well carbonated as it is, it's incredible smooth. The flavors mesh together perfectly hitting both the sweet and bitter taste buds equally. Alcohol content is present to the tongue but for a 10% beer it's well masked by the other big flavors which is ok, I think this beer was intend to be a sipper. Nice drinkability, I like this one a lot. Really cellarable I've had it fresh and aged and both are awesome. Another impressive brew from Cigar City.

Tasty, easy to drink for a high gravity beer. I've never had a Cigar City beer that I didn't like.
