Draft at Torst wih Kimberly and Taylor. Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is burnt rubber, musky charred malt. Taste is charred malt, mild rubber that is not too offputting, oil; with all of that said these flavors kind of work together, and kinda work.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Almost no carbonation. Poured super dark brown (almost black) from my 750ml bottle. Smells great, perhaps the best part. Noses smoke with some rubber like in a tire shop (not in a bad way). Would be good with a touch of something if in there. Chile.
Middle of the road viscosity. Lighter mouthfeel than you would guess, making this bad boy highly drinkable. Touch is alcohol on the taste. Don't love the aftertaste but it is not unpleasant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a rich beer. Hints of smoke and roasted wood. Very dark and thick appearance. Full and weighty palate but does not bloat. Great mix of flavors with natural smoke up front but in a spicy way that compliments without dominating everything else. Roasted malts and wood flavors. Hop character was low. Complex and nice.
