Served in short glasses, at a tasting. Very nice appearance. Not a beer I would drink every day, but very unique! The smokiness was overpowering at times (leave subtleness out in this one!), and agreed from previous comments that this is best had ice cold. I would buy again for a group tasting to get a variety of opinions. Glad to have tried this one.
