A: Pours like a stout.

S: like a cedar box with toasted malts.

T: lots of cedar and toasted malts. The hops aren't too strong, would like more. This one gets more interesting in a tasty way as it warms up.

M: Thick and heavy. Coats almost like a BA beer

O: This one was interesting. I love CCB's humidor series but this one is not what I've come to expect. Definitely glad I tried it, sen bought a second one to see how it holds up in the cellar.

Bomber purchase in DeLand, FL. Brought back to Nashville (along with many other CCB beers).

A: Pours thick, dark pitch black. Thick dark brown sticky head. Oily, looks heavy.

S: Scents of piney hops, coffee, caramel, smoky malt, and dark chocolate. Smells excellent.

T: Fantastic taste. A perfect balance of bitter hops, sweet caramel, and strong coffee all mixed with a heavy boozy backbone. This one is strong and it lets you know it quickly. Reminds me of an RIS infused with heavy hops. All around great flavor.

M: As expected the mouthfeel is thick and oily. Very heavy and almost syrupy which is exactly what I would have expected.

O: Overall yet another excellent brew from CCB. I am yet to be disappointed and am really enjoying this particular offering.
