look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Presentation: 16.9 fl oz bottle - no freshness date
Appearance: Dark brown but not opaque with thick tan head that laced nicely.
Smell: Wow is the aroma smoky. Malt aroma tries to come through as well but is dominated by the smoke.
Taste: Right away the smoky flavor comes through. Smoky flavor is meaty, charcoal and wood like. A little malt sweetness peeks its way through as well.
Mouth Feel: Moderate carbonation and slightly syrupy.
Drinkability: Perfect. Its like, I can't believe these flavors, let me have another, and another.
Comments: I am totally blown away by this beer. Totally bold, over the top, and it doesn't pull its punches. The flavors are incredible. I do not want to have this with food because I don't want to disturb the flavors. Heck, this IS food. I can drink this all day and night.

500ml bottle poured into tulip 20/7/14
A looks fairly dark until held to the light, has a clear maroon glow, big short lived tan foam leaves lots of random lace
S its smokey no doubt, smells like campfire clothing, smoked meat, faint coco and hard toffee, earthy notes, salty brine, smells like it should
T less smoke then the nose but that still leaves plenty, more chocolate, earthy notes are strong, similar to the nose but not quite the same levels of smoke
M lighter side of medium, stops just short of foam, intense smokey aftertaste just keeps going
O it is what it claims, lots of smoke, super easy to drink, I'm wishing I had some BBQ to eat with this
I bought this one to make some sauce the ribs I'm making and I think I'll need to grab another bottle to eat with them.
