Thanks for fill, Josh!
Very dark ruby and chestnut in color, with a moderately-sized, somewhat persistent, small ring of beige foam atop the beer. Leaves the glass messy with irregular ribbons of small bubbly lace.
Lots of cedar in the aroma, along with big notes of dark fruits (red grape/raisin), but the freshly-cut cedar aroma takes center stage here, without much else to cut it.
The flavor is similar to the aroma. This is a cedar show, and it's not shy. Like stepping into woodshop and drinking the aroma of freshly-cut cedar wood. I suppose it's successful in that sense, but it doesn't make for the most enjoyable drinking experience. There's a lingering flavor on the aroma as if I just made out with a cedar forest. Not for me.
Medium in body with crisp, moderate carbonation. Big, lingering cedar aftertaste. It does not leave the tongue. The cedar...it's still there. ... It's still there. I'm taking away for this lingering, lingering, lingering misfortune.
Not a favorite of mine. A tough one to enjoy. That being said, I think the Humidor series has produced some of the most foul beers I've ever had the misfortune of putting into my mouth, and this one isn't nearly as bad. So...there's that?
Serving type: growler
