Awful taste that got worse as it warmed.

Pours a dark, cola color with milked-coffee brown bubbles clinging to side of glass. Smells like a typical smoked beer, sweet and smoky. Mouthfeel is nothing special, but works with the style.

The smoke quality is not as intense on the palate as in some traditional German smoked beers, but is still omnipresent and in your face. The weird thing is that when the smoke fades, the flavor profile changes to that of a Christmas beer with clove, nutmeg, and other spices. I get a faint amount of heat from the pepper flakes, which was unexpected. The taste is complex but not sure if it is something I would drink often.
