When I first heard about this beer, I went crazy with excitement. I love the fall and the smell of bonfires. I drank this beer out of a pint glass: it has a deep amber color with a strong head but when put against the light you can see the lightness to it. A very cool color. The smell was amazing: i felt like I was sitting next to a bonfire! However, after finishing half my glass, I was about done. The after taste of burning wood overwhelmed the overal positive taste of the beer, which was moderate at first but then got way too strong. A huge fan of Samuel Adams and their autumn harvest beers, I was disappinted by this. Will be sticking to Octoberfest and Harvest Pumpkin for the fall season from SA.

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.
