A: Hazy dark amber and not much of a head.

S: Smoke and malt.

T: Wow. This is really weird and awesome at the same time. It tastes like smoked BBQ ribs. Notes of popcorn, butter, oak wood, burnt bread, and spices are prominent. There is a nice background taste of sugar sweetness.

M: Fairly thick and syrupy, but on the light side as well.

O: Really awesome and original. Never had a beer like this at all, and wasn't disappointed.
