Fifteen

12 oz single from Hop City, Atlanta, GA.
Had this one on the fridge for a few weeks.
Jet black body with a few brown colors at the extremities. The body sets itself up with a very thin, wispy mocha film. A few legs and a little lace drips down the glass.
There really is very little smoke in the nose at all, and what little there might be is overwhelmed with booze anyway.
The beer also lacks much smoke element in the taste, too. The first wave of taste is a large sweetness, but this quickly gives way to a alcohol burn and a bitter finish. A little charcoal in the back end too, perhaps THIS is where the smoke manifests itself.
The bee is fairly thin for the style and doesn’t really hit the typical depths for the style. Still not much smoke for me, and it seems as though the beer substitutes a burning bitterness for the smoke.
Disappointing that there isn’t much smoke character and the beer is definitely one that I’m glad I tried only one, 12 oz bottle of.
