2.7/5 rDev -18.7%
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.
