4.21/5  rDev +25.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: this is very dark and opaque. Highly carbonated. Aside from the thick foamy head, the sides are all bubbled up like a coke pour.
Smell: "buttery" smoke. Unique and enticing. Nothing else stands out. I likes this.
Taste: much like the nose with a slight bitterness in the finish. Very nice Nd interesting.
Overall: kind of a one trick pony but it has that trick perfected. Kudos.

Serving type: bottle

2.7/5  rDev -19.4%
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.
