Right off the bat, this cigar grabbed my attention. 7 x 33 is a unique size, and I greatly underestimated it. 
Paired with a Firestone Brewing Sucuba 2018

Great construction and perfect draw!

1st –
Dry cocoa, a buttery caramel note, light pepper zing on the finish. Shifts to a great amount of sweetness, earthy cocoa, maybe some dark fruit? (could be the beer)

2nd –
Powdery cocoa, black pepper, creamy milk chocolate, great burn line, pepper on retrohale, smoky woodsy note.

3rd –
The final third starts off with more pepper on the finish, then transitions to an earthy peppery cocoa.
Here’s the surprising part for me, a big blast of strength! Very enjoyable twist.
The blend continues to show off its earthy peppery sweet woodsy note.

This cigar has a great amount of strength for the size, and it is definitely a great 30 – 45 minute smoke. Hands down the final third was my favorite.  For my preference I would want to try a 38 or 42 ring gauge, just to see what would happen.

Score = 88
Firestone Brewing Sucuba – 
Smooth & Silky 
Immense amount of dark fruit, floral and sweet. 

The sweetness of this beer pairs very well with this cigar.
