11 ounce goblet - $6.50 at Taco Mac (Prado) in Sandy Springs, Georgia.

Appearance: Dispensed a muddled, opaque brown body with a fourth of an inch of fine, dusty white suds.

Smell: This isn't exactly what I had anticipated. Burning rubber, molten plastic notes. All in all, it's highly displeasing and begs the question: "they really let this monstrosity leave the brewery?"

Taste: Roasted cigarette butts, a heavily phenolic smoke character giving a flavor of burnt rubber doorstops, lacquered bandaids, and a growing hint of six bucks and fifty cents absolutely wasted.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Appallingly bad.

Serving type: on-tap

Got this beer in a bottle, and the labeling is strangely missing its ABV rating. The bottle itself has a clever painted-on / water-graphic label though, not a paper one.

The initial smell was heavy smoke with a belgian ester finish, not what I was expecting. The label does indicate weizen yeast, though.

The hops are listed at 25 on the bottle, but the hops are very present in the beer. For the heavy smoked malt and belgian notes being present, the sheer volume of hops put it up around 60-75 IBU's in my opinion.

Mouthfeel was medium-body, and there was more than sufficient carbonation.

I don't really know what they were thinking with this beer. It reminds me a lot of the infamous voodoo donut beer. If you loved that beer, and you love belgians and IPAs and you wanted everything to come together in one bottle, you might love this beer. I didn't... and thus I don't.

This was the last beer I drank last night, and after brushing my teeth and waking up the next day, I can still taste it. Much like cigars, the smoked malt will linger for over 12 hours in your mouth, even through brushing.

TLDR: A heavily smoked belgian IPA with a tart red-apple bitterness that you will taste the next morning.

Served in a Devil's Backbone weizen glass.

Well, that's one way to get pronunciation right... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset topaz topped by over a finger of sandstone foam. The nose comprises rye bread, light black pepper, and a vague sense of some sort of orange character. The taste keeps some of the spiciness and breadiness and adds a decent helping of soap. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly chewy-ish feel. Overall, this beer just didn't sit right with me. There's no real sense of weizen-yeast character, the rye doesn't meld well with anything else, and the flavors just fall flat.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear, deep copper color with a fizzy, tan head that leaves a decent sheet of lacing.

Smells of some smoke and a little rye.

Tastes of some slight smoke with the rye coming in after. First wave to hit is the smoke which is on the light side. A bit of rye spiciness comes through and then it just fades into a bland middle that has a little bitterness to it. There is a touch of a belgian yeast character with banana and clove that comes through as well, but doesn't really help anything.

Mouthfeel is medium with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, I am perplexed. This just feels like a complete miss to me.
