Decent carbonation look and feel. Don't care for the fruity cedar flavor. Probably best served at room temperature.

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.

Pours black with little foam, maybe a rim of light tan foam. Smells like leather, maduro tobacco and dank hops, some roasted malts, and a touch of vinyl. Taste is tobacco like a mutha. It really does remind me of a humidor - I'm uncertain of my feelings, yet, I keep drinking it quickly. I must like it....Full bodied with moderate carb and a wet finish. I'm really blown away by this beer, and I am torn as to if it's in the good way. WTF. Fuck it, I like it.
