20170815_192350

If you get a bomber of this one, please don’t share. The perfect amount of this one is 22 ounces. Unless you have supplemented your beer intake with some other beer (preferably some lighter beers beforehand), than smaller quantities could be acceptable. What did Left Hand do right? They put “Smoke” in the name, in big letters, on the front, They mentioned firefighters, They made it dark, They included campfire notes in the nose. What could they look into in the future? They could add more smoke to the smell and taste, They could add notes of smoked meats into the formula. Campfire – Yes. Good Beer – Yes. Earthy Hoppiness – Yes. Roasted Brown Color – No. Jet Fuckin Black – Yes. Overall Happiness 5 Smokestacks
