With a series named Monster, you might expect a dark, craggy, giant-sized beast of a pipe. However, what we have is an excellent, refined bent Brandy with a gracefully bent shank and rich, glossy finish filled with a smokey grain. Oh, and it just happens to be the biggest bent Brandy I've encountered, with a canyon for a chamber. So, not so dark. Definitely not craggy, but big and ready to devourer copious amounts of your tobacco in exchange for a long, long, pleasing smoke.
