Had on tap at the "Power of the Pint" party. Smells like a campfire, super heavy smoke and rich malt. Taste is similar, just way too much smoke. A complex beer that I am sure will get better with age. Just too much smoke fresh.

Go surly band wagon... I believe iíve had a majority of their didnít beers, but I think my favorite is pentagram and even that is sub par. This tastes like a bonfire threw up in your mouth, and not in a good way. Iíve tried this twice and right the same thing, not worth the money.

Bottle at BCTC. Dark brown to black. No head. Smells like a campfire. Taste is sweet and charred oak. Peppers and more burnt wood. Not much balance to this as well. iím getting some pecans on the back end. Very chewy and peetie

Black with no head. Super smokey aroma with some malt. Taste is sweet with tons of smoke. Something about the combination of sweetness with smoke really disgusted me. If the beer was drier I would have totally dug the smoke flavor but with this weird sweetness I canít take it.

At Averyís 2012 Strong Ale Fest. Black with a small tan head. Aroma is super smoky, lots of smoke, burnt wood, charcoal char...like campfire. Flavor is smooth, but same as nose. Burnt wood, char, smoke. Smokey sweetness, and a big body. Just too smoky for me.

I very much wanted to like this beer. Poored dark, overwhelming smell of the smoke. I thought the smoke flavor overpowered the beer. I also didnít care for a GI Nightstalker, maybe baltic porters arenít for me..

There is nothing wrong with the appearance or aroma, but this could be the most disgusting beer ever made. At a beer tasting, 9 out of 10 tasters considered this beer the worst beer ever made. The only discussion over this beer was what purpose it could serve. Possible solutions are beer batter, base for BBQ sauce, or marinade.
