I enjoy a Drew Estates Java with a creamy stout or porter

I went to this local cigar event that was amazing they gave out like 20 cigars and RP was there and I met his brother and my brother won this big cigar he can hang in his room and his brother actually signed it. It was pretty cool.

Check out cigar asylum, probably one of the best cigar-related message boards out there.

I've got some partagas shorts from 06 that are smoking great right now. They pair well with EVERYTHING!

I don't know, I'm thinking Macanudos go better with Clausthaler.

I like a good cigar with a scotch or a bourbon. I've drank plenty of beers while smoking cheap cigars but I guess I've never really thought about it. I have a Romeo Y Julieta I'm gonna smoke soon. Maybe I'll try to pair it with really good beer, maybe nice amber.

It's my opinion that it's more of a what type of beer goes with cigars type of situation. There are less beers that go with cigars. I think that as mentioned already the bitterness of an IPA and the flavor of a cigar does not match up well. It's almost like both flavors are too sharp on the tongue and I think it makes for an unpleasant pairing. If I'm pairing up a beer and a cigar it tends to be a big beer. Something dark and malty without a ton of bitterness. Last beer I throughly enjoyed with a cigar that was almost a pair made in heaven was a Troegs Javahead stout, and a Tatuaje RC184.

You needs something that stands up to and works with the smoke instead of competing with it.

I totally agree I wouldnt smoke an IPA with a cigar at all. Like they have those java cofee flavored cigars... If i was gonna be drinking some type of coffee stout I would go with the coffee flavored cigar.
