Pours well. The aroma is decidedly smoky (redolent of the burnt ends of a brisket). THe taste is complex. Smoke, slight tartness, malt. Mainly smoke. Feels oily on the palate. I recommend this beer be shared, I found it hard to drink more than 2-5oz. Drinkability is not the mission of this beer and any more than 5 oz might put you off. A good, interesting, sampling beer.

Most disgusting beer I've ever had in my life.

It literally smells and tastes like band aids and stomach bile. I thought about throwing up in my own mouth to get rid of the beer taste.

Avoid at all costs!
