Poured dark mahogany/amber with minimal head.
Smells like a fireplace fire. I also got the smell of Skoal chewing tobacco...brings back bad memories when I tried that back in HS and ended up sick as a dog.
Tastes like you would expect, very smoky with a bacon flavor. I had read this in other posts and expected it to be a real heavy beer but it really isn't.
Medium bodied with good carbonation.
Drinkability is very low for me. I'm glad I tried the style but it isn't for me. Based on the taste I'm sure that this is a great representation of the stylye, but again, not for me. Maybe I'll revisit it in a couple years but for now, no thanks.

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.
