Appearance of Black Ops Berserker Toro
The Black Ops Berserker Toro is a beautifully made cigar. The wrapper is a dark and oily Maduro that is smooth to the touch. The cigar is well-constructed, with no visible veins or imperfections. The cigar has a solid feel to it and is neatly rolled.
The cigar has a huge band that is like a foil-imposed paper with an exciting design. It has a skull motif in the middle with the words “Black Ops” written below it in font color red, followed by the white-colored word “Berseker.”
Despite the band being attractive in the eyes, I don’t think it matched the dark brown color of the cigar since most of the band colors are black, gray, red, brown, and white. It’s almost as if you can’t see the band as it was colored almost identically to the actual wrapper of the cigar.
On the other hand, it’s also understandable considering that the well-known color of the skull is really between black, gray, and white. It also has a minimal design at the back, featuring a spade and double axis, both in color white.
Upon lighting the Black Ops Berserker Toro cigar, the first flavor I tasted was coffee, followed by chocolate. The coffee flavor is rich and bold, almost like an espresso. This cigar is also smooth, making it a perfect start.
For my first third of the Black Ops Berserker Toro cigar, its retro-hale has a hint of earthy tobacco, dark chocolate or cocoa, and espresso, just similar to its actual flavor. For its actual flavor, it got a little bit intense, with coffee being its dominant flavor. There’s also a building sweet, which I find pretty good. The ash is holding up very well, and the smoke output is okay.
After my second third, the Black Ops Berserker Toro cigar’s ash already fell off. Despite it, it still has excellent construction and burns almost evenly. I also decided to remove its band due to how huge it is. For the flavors, it’s still pretty consistent, which means it still has the same flavors. I can really say that this cigar is a good coffee cigar since it’s still the flavor that is dominant up until this part.
After my final third, the Black Ops Berserker Toro cigar has been pretty consistent, which I find pleasing. Coffee, chocolate or cocoa, and earthy tobacco consist of their overall flavor. The construction is outstanding at the very end, including its burn and smoke output. I can’t pinpoint any flaws in it.
Overall, the Black Ops Berserker Toro cigar is a good cigar with notes of coffee, chocolate, and earthy tobacco. As someone who enjoys smoking complex cigars, I am surprised how I enjoyed this one considering that the flavors on the first third are still the same thing I tasted up until the final third.
Once lit, the Black Ops Berserker Toro delivers a densely packed smoke with flavors of dark chocolate or cocoa, coffee, and earthy tobacco. The thick smoke is creamy and smooth on the palate, and the cigar leaves a long-lasting finish on the tongue.
The cigar is medium to full-bodied, with a good amount of strength that builds as the smoke progresses. The burn is even, and the draw is smooth, making for an enjoyable smoking experience from start to finish.
If you’re a huge coffee lover, you’re absolutely the target market of this one. This cigar is medium to full-bodied, so I don’t really suggest this to those who are beginners, but the flavors are definitely something I can also recommend to them.
