One thought on “Cigar City’s “Tropical” Rum Barrel Aged Stout [Updated]”
Tropical has never meant the inclusion of Spanish cedar.
Yonder Bock did not have Spanish cedar. We used a blend of several different hop varieties to achieve the tropical fruit aroma and flavor. Yonder Bock has no fruit and is not wood aged.
Tropical, in the case of this beer, is referring to the rum element combo with the foreign stout element. It’s a Rum Barrel Aged Foreign Export Stout.
If possible, please correct your statement about tropical and Spanish cedar.
It’s great to get the jump on a future beer that is coming out but it’s not cool to spread misconceptions to beer drinkers about our products.
