A- Dark khaki head forms two fingers thick, recedes somewhat quickly. Lots of fizzy carbonation is visible in the pitch-black liquid. 4

S- Deep mesquite aroma, kind of like with Lay's BBQ chips. Also reminds me of a smoky scotch. Faint roast malt and vanilla. 4

T- Tastes true to the nose, mesquite-heavy, charcoal smoky, and reminiscent of a scotch again. Chocolate is subtle, vanilla and roast malt too. 4.25

M- Creamy and smooth, this still retains some lively carbonation mid-palate. It's medium in body and neither sweet nor bitter. 4.25

Quite an impressive beer. The smokiness and mesquite are bold and reminiscent of the scotches I like, but no scotch is this creamy and chocolatey.

Somehow the 4 pack tastes different than the pints, it seriously tastes like 2 different beers. The pints taste much better.

Loved this beer in the big bottles!!...Now that its in the 12oz 4-pack I am sold!!! I live right down the street from the distillery and they give tours every weekend. If you haven't tired their whisky and bourbons u must.. they just released a Beer/White whisky blend that is very unique!!
