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.

750 oz. bottle date January 2013. Might be a little too old for the style but think it should hold up quite well.

A - Pours almost bitch black with a voluminous two finger tan head. This beer looks great, delicate lacing lingers throughout my glass as I drink.

S - Faint hints of cedar, citrus-y hops and a faint touch of dark chocolat-y and roasted malts. Nothing here is overpowering, shows some good balance.

T - Sweet and hoppy on the front-end. Roasted malts and alcoholic bite in the middle. Finishes with a touch of cedar on the tongue, which is quite pleasant on the palate and is actually the most pleasant experience of tasting this beer.

M - If having a 'balanced' mouth-feel exists, I think this beer hits it. I think the flavor profile could stand for a little more malt-backbone, but that is not detracting from this beer. The cedar notes on the back-end round out the uniqueness.

Overall, this is a wonderfully crafted beer. In the limited experience I have had with cedar aged beers, Cigar City really knows what flavor profiles work. Would have again and would be interested in seeing what some age could to (with the hoppyness muted).
