Bottle poured into a tall Hef glass

A - Hazy amber in color. Kind of a plum amber. Head is very tall and foamy. Head dissipates extremely slowly. Head is retained until the glass is drained. 4.25/5

S - Fairly smoky. Reminds of when my wife worked in a meat plant and would come home with the scent of liquid smoke on her clothes. Dried bananas. Cloves. Undertone of bread. 4.5/5

T - Roasted malt in the beginning transitioning to a hefty smokiness and bananas, then finally by cloves. Fairly complex. One flavor follows the next. Hint of toffee. 4.5/5

M - Fairly low carbonation. Chewy in the beginning. Finishes somewhat dry which was kind of surprising. 4/5

O - My first smoked beer. Very complex with a multitude of flavors. The smoke was balanced nicely by the sweetness of the banana flavor (yeast). The clove flavor really came out in this one. 4.25/5

0,5 l bottle (12/2014) into a weizen. Hazy amber brown body, big head with good retention and lacing. At first all I can smell is smoke, after a while a little bubblegum comes up as the smoke tones down a bit. The first taste is all smoke. After having a couple sips, sweet malts with bubblegum can be tasted. Later through the beer some banana comes up. The aftertaste is dry and mildly smoky. At first there's nothing but smoke in the taste, more weizen-like towards the end. Medium-light body, medium mouthfeel, a bit watery mouthfeel. An interesting specialty, though I necessarily wouldn't have one again. Not as smoky I feared it would be.
