Hopefully got extra'd a bad bottle - completely over-carbonated, which prevented being able to enjoy the flavors they attempted to present here.

A: Wow--I tipped my Duvel tulip rather steeply and poured slowly, and this thing still created a massive head. Frankly, it's pretty ridiculous, but I found it endearing. The lacing is thick; it clumped on the glass, and a circular mound on top maintains composure despite everything happening around it. Color is pitch-black, thick with viscosity.

S: Hints of cayenne pepper, malt, and obvious mesquite-smoked wood abound. There's not a whole lot of subtlety here, but it knows what it is. It leaves a really lovely aftertaste.

T: Vanilla, chocolate, and smokey barbecue are the plate du jour. I could definitely see this paired with a robust red meat cut and some hearty mashed potatoes. Using this for a marinade could probably do some wonders, too.

M: A nice, milky quality gives this some smooth character. It's a great sipping beer. With some warming, it really opens up nicely.

O: Not bad at all. While I wouldn't go out of my way to have it again for drinking, this would provide an incredible nuance to marinated meat destined for the grill. I'll pick it up again for that reason.

A- Dark khaki head forms two fingers thick, recedes somewhat quickly. Lots of fizzy carbonation is visible in the pitch-black liquid. 4

S- Deep mesquite aroma, kind of like with Lay's BBQ chips. Also reminds me of a smoky scotch. Faint roast malt and vanilla. 4

T- Tastes true to the nose, mesquite-heavy, charcoal smoky, and reminiscent of a scotch again. Chocolate is subtle, vanilla and roast malt too. 4.25

M- Creamy and smooth, this still retains some lively carbonation mid-palate. It's medium in body and neither sweet nor bitter. 4.25

Quite an impressive beer. The smokiness and mesquite are bold and reminiscent of the scotches I like, but no scotch is this creamy and chocolatey.
