Wow, this is definitely an acquired taste! (One that I don't think I'll want to acquire...) If you like hanging out in smokehouses, you might like this beer, but for me, it was like being beaten over the head with the predominant smoke flavor.
It poured a clear dark maroon, with a tan head. Smoke was the main aroma, with a touch of malt sweetness. Tastes were SMOKE, kielbasa, and a wee bit of malt. Mouthfeel was thin and watery. Finish was (surprise, surprise) SMOKE!
Next time I want a smoked beer, I'll go for the Stone Smoked Porter. This one is more like a liquified smoked sausage, or drinking the water you just put out the campfire with...

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.
