Smoked beer walks a very fine line for me. One step too far to one side and the smoke is barely present; to the other side and it's a bacon-bomb. Smokin' Guns rides the line very well for my palate. 15% of the malt bill is smoked, which is enough for that flavor to be present but not overwhelming. Outside of that it's a beast of an imperial stout, at nearly 10% ABV and chock full of roast, coffee, chocolate, and all things a good stout should have.
