Point I'm making; if you focus on the title of the thread you are missing his point, me thinks (even assumes). He says it smelled like holding up a dirty sweatshirt in which you had smoked a cigar the previous night. That's not "tobacco" aroma, which can be very pleasing if you are talking about the smell of an un-smoked cigar. His description in his post sounds smoky as in phenols.
yes, it does not smell like fresh un burned tobacco. it smells like you walked in to a room that the night before your buddies were smoking in. i have the beer in the fridge now and will try it in a few weeks and see if it persists
