Tasted and smelt exaclty like buring firewood....Sam Adams Bonfire, no kidding. From the sam adams winter variety pack. Usually the variety packs are hit and miss. The winter pack was a great success. With the exception of "firewood Beer". I guess if you have this beer and take the name literially, you will not be dissapointed, especially if you happen to be a termite.
-Although it's been well over a year since I last tasted this "Gem", The taste is one that will not be forgotton.

Bonfire is the right name.. their is smoky beer and then there is this.
If you want your beer to taste like it was filtered through BURNT bacon drippings this is the beer for you. Simply undrinkable.
BTW I like bacon.. but this was somethign else.

Bottle poured into a standard conical pint glass.
A: Darkish amber. Head dissipated quickly, leaving a minimal amount of lacing.
S: Like a cheap cigar. Slighly sweet and acrid.
T: Worse than it smells. Like licking an ashtray. My wife describes it as 'being mouthraped by a hobo.
M: After the taste, I just wanted to forget that even tried this.
O: Horrible. I would rather not drink beer than ever drink this again.

In a pint glass and a stange at different times:
A: dark amber hazy body, no head, no lacing
S: smokey meaty coming through in a dull bland way
T: exactly the same as the smell
M: medium, not exactly sessionable (at IMO), bland sticky aftertaste pounding all around my tongue, assault by carbonation, bland meaty finish
O: however I guess this still fits the style, but I'm not a fan of this whatsoever
