Pours a full opaque black with a latte coloured head that lingers and laces beautifully. Indeed, this is a beautiful beer.
The nose is actually kind of disappointing. I get some light smoke, and not much else.
It's a tasty beer, just not as outstanding as I had hoped. The taste is charred malts with a strong smoke backbone. A little bit of almost sweet is in there in the last third, but ultimately a little uninspiring.
My first thought was that it was a heavily carbonated beer, then I realized that the tingle I was feeling was largely from the little bit of chili bite. Plays across the palate very well, and that little bite at the end with just a touch of heat is very well executed. Overall, I'd say this beer probably suffers from elevated expectations more than anything else. Worth checking out, but nothing mindblowing.
