If you have not figured it out by now, Great Divide is on my list of favorite breweries.  Coincidentally BBQ is one of my favorite dishes.  When I saw this beer on the shelf I knew I needed to buy it because smoking a hunk of meat was in my near future.

Tasting Notes:
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a becker glass.  I had a lot of foam issues on my pour and again on my second pour.  I found this odd since most of the Beer Advocate reviewers reported lack of head as a problem.  It had smoke and chocolate aromas, but not as smokey as I wanted.  The smoke and chocolate carried through on the tongue with the addition of strong coffee.  Moderate carbonation and a medium mouthfeel along with the intensity of the flavors make this a tough beer to order multiples of but solid to go with BBQ.
