This is one of those that sounded more exciting on paper than in the glass. Deep brown-burgundy color with a tan head. The smoke, chilli were detectable, but hard to tell if I could have picked them up without knowing what I am drinking. Light body, medium carbonation. Okay...

@Borefts. This was promising. but it dissapointed. Quite flat beer, the smoke and chilli were hardly detectable. A shame.
