FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2012
From the July 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark nut brown color with a huge foamy beige head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was malty and nutty with a hot pepper presence. The flavor was tangy, malty and a touch skunky with notes of nut and hot peppers. The finish was medium length tangy, nutty and hot pepper. Medium body. Odd.

Pours a mahogany color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty strong of the caramel malts with only a hint of the chile. Flavor is also overly sweet from the caramel malts. A slight hint of the chile comes out on the finish with only a slight spicy flavor on the finish.

I have had some beers that were pretty heavy on the chiles, this was a bit more mild than I was anticipating. It’s got a nice sweet caramel flavor that balances the smoke and the spice. Tasty.

Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark hazy red with an off white head. Aromas of caramel malts and mediciny smells. Taste sweet malts from the get go but has a spice that lingers for awhile. I haven’t had many beers like this one. Not a bad thing to try now and then.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle version. Pours a amber brown with a tall beige head. Sweet malty aroma candy like with a touch of yeast and banana. Sweet caramel malts with a touch of roasted malt. Red fruit flavors underneath that black pepper ancho spice. No real heat to the spice but a bitter lasting black pepper finish. I enjoyed the tap version a little more which seemed to have more dark fruits in it, but this one is pretty tasty as well.

DocLock (7860) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear dark brown with ruby edges and a 2-finger tan head. Nose is brown sugary malt, mild hops, earthiness, nuts. Tastes malty, with hops, vinous fruit, earthy chile as it warms. Unique, and the peppers emerge more late, and work pretty well with this.
