beer-yum (439) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 16, 2013
An enjoyable porter with an unexpected punch. The chilli is front and centre but is nicely balanced with the chocolate and coffee that fills out the finish.

DrSilverworm (6009) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2013
10oz snifter on tap at Neon’s, for $6. Very dark brown, near-black color. Thin light brown / khaki head. Good bits and short ropes of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Kind of a chewy, bigger texture. Lightly dry finish. Good bigger roast, dark malts, hint of coffee, good dark chocolate aroma. Pepper is much more subtle and well-integrated than expected. Much more balanced than habanero sculpin, works great with the rich, dark malt flavors of Marlin. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Good light peppery heat creeps up on you in the finish, but it’s more of a warm hug on the palate than a peppery kick. Up front, the pepper backs off enough to let the dark chocolate and roast malt flavors shine. Definitely the best pepper porter I’ve had yet, much better than expected.

TimE (3105) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 2, 2013
Dark brown color. Huge cocoa, chilli notes in the nose with a touch of tobacco. The mouth is malty, fairly dry, lots of chilli and chocolate. Spicy cacao finish. Very nice and I like this experiment.
