Cigar City Brewing Forgotten Island
Cigar City Brewing Forgotten Island is a Belgian Style Quad Ale Aged In Rum Barrels. This was the very first release of the First Edition of the El Catador Club. Bottled on 7/15/2013, aged 11 months. Big thanks to Raymond for sharing this one.
This is the sweetest beer I’ve tried in a long time, maybe ever. The label gives you a list a mile long of notes you are supposed to taste, but inside that syrupy sweetness all I can find is big rum, candi sugar, brown sugar and some figs and plums. Maybe this was a bit more complex fresh, but it has turned into a sugar bomb. In spite of the diabetes risk, this is still a really impressive beer.
I was also a member of El Catador and have yet to open my bottle, and now I really don’t know what to to with it. I doesn’t need any more age, but I’m in no rush to open up this sugar/booze monster anytime soon!
