Bottle purchased from Slowbeer in Melbourne.
Pours a dirty golden colour, slightly hazy with a fine inconsistent film of white that forms soapy bubbles at the edges. Some mild lacing. Carbonation is fine, and there looks like there's heft to the body. Reasonable looking beer. Not great, but reasonable.
Nose is smoky but bland, with a whiff of malt extract and a sugary nothingness. Something of an adjunct character to it, that mingles with the smoke to make it feel harsh, dry and a little bit acrid.
Taste is very odd. Almost no sweetness and no body to it, leaving the dry smoke character to perform most of the work. This mingles with an oddly vegetative character, leaving a taste like tobacco ash or dog biscuits in the mouth. After palate reminds me of sucking on a banana leaf that has been used to steam fish.
All up, not a very pleasant beer, even if it is rather unique and interesting in its way. I prefer my smoke beers to have depth and body, otherwise they turn out dry and ashy like this one. It's interesting, but unbalanced and overpowered in one dimension, removing any possibility of complexity or depth.
