Wrapper: San Andres Maduro
Ring size: 50
Approx. cost: $8
Bdawg says: What a good looking cigar. The wrapper is dark brown, oily, and nicely constructed. The draw is easy producing great volumes of billowy smoke and a salt and pepper colored ash. The flavor is charcoal, espresso, and earth. The burn is slow and even.

I tried this cigar with a New Holland Kolsch, but it was a little too lite for the cigar. Not a very good pairing...

Kolsch Style Beer
Bdawg says: As far as Kolsch's go, this is a pretty good one. If you like a cold Coors Lite. It it's a hot day. If you just want to shot gun a beer or several, by all means this is a good beer for you. Mild, slightly sweet, not hoppy at all. I am just not a fan of Kolsch's. I like a little more taste to my beer. 2.5 Hearts
I later tried the same cigar with a Southern Tier 2XIBA. A much darker beer for this full flavored cigar. Now we're talking. Perfect pairing!

India Black Ale
Bdawg Says: Dark, smooth, chocolatey, hoppy.
Another beer I tried with this cigar was Sea Dog Brewing Co. Blue Paw Wild Blueberry Ale:
