Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, wood, smoke, spice, butter. The taste is spice, smoke, peppers, roasted malt. Medium bodied, lingering spice. I guess I liked this better than anyone else there.

Bottle... Pours clear and black with a small, fizzy, lightly tanned head. The aroma is awesome – charcoal, virgin ash and leather, accompanied by a light note of campfire smoke. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. Acrid, roasty, woody flavor with a light kiss of acidity. Finishes mildly tangy and charred.
