Fortunately, this beer has done me well. No life crises induced, no depressing beer fanatic moments, just some solid taste that makes me smile. I got it in a growler from Bierkraft in Brooklyn and poured into a pint glass. As the guy described it: "Man, the smoke in there is like a football field was filled with tires set on fire and then all at once put out… then they trapped that smoke and put it in this beer". So… yeah, it’s bad ass.
Appearance: Dark and rich, very portly. (I have a small vocabulary). Rich lacing.
Smell: Smoke. And … barbeque? I’m a vegetarian and eating, er, drinking this beer makes me feel like I’ve sinned.
Taste: Along the same lines. Sinful. There’s a rich and creamy sweetness to it, plus meatiness, and some pleasant hints of chocolate and other good stuff.
Drinkability: High. And not overdone with alcohol, so you don’t feel like you should apologize after drinking it (although maybe you should).
Serving type: growler
