4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured up at GABF 2012 with a nice mahogany looking body that supports a sort of mocha colored head that has some tan swirls to it and it leaves behind a little bit of lacing too. Nice looking brew. The aroma seems kind of Abbey Dubbel like initially and comes across pleasing with ripe brown sugar covered plum like sweet fruity esters, and what seems like a touch of coriander and clove and then some earthy chocolate notes in the background. Wow, ok, the taste is really nice. It starts off with dark roasted malts and then picks up a rich near velvety dark chocolate note and it quickly rolls into more and more chili pepper heat midway and into the finish. Fantastic experience on the first sip. I hope the sips to follow can maintain . . . maintain damn you! Oh it does, nice. Into the after taste it leaves a modest chili pepper burn and warming that certainly isnít too much but sure lets you know itís there. Really nice brew. Well done!

Pours a very dark brown almost black with tan colored head. Spice, peppers definitely, some light raw cacao, and a bit of sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with heat! I liked the tingle it left in the back of the throat. Very nicely done.

Hint of chocolate, honey into moderate spiced finish. Light for a porter, silky smooth throughout palate. Take time to enjoy complexities. Spice very unique, lingers ever slightly but finishes clean. Not a fan of spice brews but this is the exception.

Draft in Wesley chapel. Looks like a porter. Molasses aroma and flavor. Smooth. Spice only evident at end- much more noticeable after downing last two ounces. Very nice

Black pour with a near white head? Aroma is primarily roast malt. Taste is roast malt and woody bite. Little peppery finish.

I donít love it... Itís a porter base with honey and chili added but the chili is nice and the honey is too much. The porter itself might be nice but it has too much heat and sweetness to be enjoyed personally.

Got a growler at the grand opening. This beer is well balanced and as advertised, spiced. It was exactly what I want in a spiced porter, warm pepper and chocolate. The honey keeps it sweet and invites more sipping. Spice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap @ brewpub. Brown ruby - reddish coloured with a beige head. Nose is toasted malts, chocolate, caramel, honey. Flavour is initially toasted malts, fruits, chocolate, followed by an increasing spicyness and hotness. Honey also noticable later. Finish is slightly sweet and fairly spicy. Well balanced with the peppers and honey. Develops as you sip. Very well done.

Tap at Darwinís on 4th. Dark brown pour white head. Smells like Christmas, nutty and toasted herbs. Light body English porter with light spice in the flavor. Aroma hypes this up more than the taste. Interesting but nothing special.

Tap sample. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted peppers, malt and dark honey aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted peppers sweet malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.
