LONG time want of mine! 2016 vintage. Unfortunately, most of the cocoa, vanilla, and cinnamon has faded already. All that remains is the apple brandy, and strong ancho chilies. Spicy burn on finish. I’m sure it’s a shell of its former self.

This amazing beer combines tobacco, peppers, vanilla, and what tastes like brandy into the quintessential barrel aged beer that pours perfectly and combines amazing mouthfeel, carb and taste

2016 Vintage - Drank 02/24/21

Smell -pleasant with notes of tobacco and chocolate

Taste - The tobacco over powers this one in the beginning. And then as it warms, the peppers take over. Very unique taste, and I think it’s the brandy barrel influence.

Feel - thin, and I expected more

Overall - for being the #4 overall beer on BA, I expected more, much more. The feel was thin, and notes of pepper overpowered this. Yet it was not completely unenjoyable, just not even close to the 4th best beer in the world. Regardless, glad I gut to try it as it’s always nice to see what the hype is about. This one just didn’t live up to it

Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Jake. Black in color without much/any head. Crazy marshmallow and graham cracker nose. Lots of cinnamon, chocolate, and vanilla. Light spice, slight fruity brandy, and some caramel. Tastes like smores and cinnamon toast crunch. Crazy marshmallow, chocolate, and cinnamon. Dark chocolate, vanilla, and a subtle chile spiciness. Really solid.

Tasted this double barrel aged multiple times for multiple years. This is an excellent stout that I welcome drinking just about any time I'd like a stout. However, this is simply not a 100 point beer. I'm convinced that the score for this beer is the result of scoring by locals employing local hype. But, very good beer none the less.

After 500+ stouts, this one is easily top 5. A bar to measure all other BA adjunct stouts (for me). Everything is spot on. Sweet-but-not-too-sweet, super balanced adjuncts, barrel-but-not-too-much-barrel, thick-but-not-THICC, etc.

Thanks to my new friends at the Cycle Barrel Aged Day bottle shared.

Look- A smooth black with a thin tannish head which faded quickly.

Smell- A mix of barrel, booze, and sweetness of chocolate. Interesting mix that really works.

Taste- Chocolate, barrel, coconut, and just a hint of cinnamon. Nothing like the Hunahpus that I had tried before. There was more sweetness but the barrel gave it a nice sharp flavor. I think the brandy really gave the flavors an awesome boost.

Mouthfeel- A nice thick coating which lingers. Full bodied and little carbonation.

Overall- A fantastic brew from Cigar City. This is definitely a one of a kind brew.
