650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Big khaki head. Retains well. Thick collar.

Smell - Whoa. Weird. Gorgonzola cheese. Chocolate and licorice. Woody.

Taste - It tastes like gorgonzola cheese up front, too. Chocolate. Very woody. Bitter chocolate finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Kinda bitter. Well carbonated.

Overall - Well, the cheese is remarkably odd. Odd and gross.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Tampa Bay Brewing Company snifter.

A: Pours jet black and opaque, with a thin tan head and minimal visible carbonation.

S: Chocolate, burnt ash, smoke, charred wood, a bit acrid. But overall smells pretty good and complex.

T: Smoke, medicinal Band-aid, smoked dark chocolate, some spicy onion. It's really not good, and the flavors last for quite awhile in your mouth.

M: Medium body, low carbonation sensation, and alcohol presence moderate.

O: This is really not good. Smoked beers aren't my favorite, but this is over the top. The Band-Aid flavor was the main cause for me giving up on this one. Sadly, drain-pour.
