COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fire Hole Chili Porter is the pride and joy of our brewer. This beer is a beautiful union of sweet and spicy. While most chili beers are in your face peppery, we went for subtle. This porter first washes over your palate with chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors. Then you swallow and think, “Where’s the Chili?” But then it happens – the heat from the Japanese Red Chilies begins to tickle the back of your tongue reminding you how perfectly sweet and spice go together without assaulting your senses.

5 oz taster at brewpub in Buffalo, WY. Black, opaque. A little lighter than I was hoping. Light-to-medium body. Taste is dry, more English style, dark malt, slight -to-moderate burn on the finish. Alright but not great. I’d like it to be spicer and fuller.

Draft - Chocolate malts. Jet black with a rich brown head. Chocolate and with a good amount of chilli heat. Finish burns a bit but is still OK.

Growler filled at the brewery and consumed the next day. Pours a very dark brown, just about black, that allows no light to pass through, with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of chocolate and chili. The flavor is chocolate, light roast, and chili pepper. The heat from the peppers is spot-on and does not overpower this beer. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Very good!
