4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a very cloudy amber color. The pour gave me 3 + fingers worth of head. The aroma is very sweet almost fruity. However, you can smell the black pepper. The taste is sweet, hint of grapefruit with the black pepper finishing everything off at the end. The mouthfeel is bitter but still hints of grapefruit. It starts off sweet but finishes bitter. I find that be delightful and really makes this one enjoyable. I think the black pepper really plays with the palate.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Craft on several occasions. This one is a definite love it or hate it beer, and one of the more unique and enjoyable I’ve had in a long time. The pour is hazy deep coppery with off-white head. Nose is malty, with some hops and heavy cracked black pepper. Tastes very black peppery, with malt, hops, mild citrus. The black pepper is pronounced, but for me it molds into the beer well, and this one reminded me of that Dieu Du Ciel pepper beer a bit. This one went extremely well with fish and chips.

Bottle. Pours a reddish orange with a nice light head aboard. Nose is IPAesque in its florality/hop profile with the addition of ground black pepper. The flavor is orange and flowers with light bitterness. The black pepper is in the back but I very pleasent sensation in the finish. This was really good. There is no heat from the pepper but the combination of the flavors was completely enjoyable. Thanks to stine for this one.

I actually really enjoyed this brew. Pours a dull amber color with a lasting creamy head. Smells of fresh sweet malt and cracked black pepper. The pepper is like a laser beam on this cutting through the fatty layers precisely leaving a clear nasal passage. Full nectar with creamy effers. A well balanced brew worthy of a second bottle, if I had one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle thanks OSLO) Pours out dark amber with a soapy off-white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. When cold, the aroma is full of fruit (pineapple, grapefruit) and a soap-like smell. Upon warming, the aroma changes over to a balance between caramel malt and hops, along with some pepper as well. The taste is really like an IPA with a strong hops presence offering some fruit flavor, and the malt offering a sweet caramel taste. The finish of this beer is really unique, with a bready finish (like a pretzel), and the pepper makes its presence felt, as the spice puts an impression on the tongue. The mouthfeel is medium. This is definitely not a run of the mill IPA or APA, and the finish really sets it apart from other beers. A well done and original brew, that is a little underrated in my opinion.

I thought this beer would be a little gimmicky - but I was wrong. The pepper actually goes totally smoothly with the hops. The beer’s flavor flows from bitter to spicy like nobody’s business.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2010 I drank it, but I can hardly tell you any of the details. I didn’t hate it, and I could drink it fast.
A little better this time, since I am consciously drinking it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I really like this beer. There is a good dose of citrus and spice. The peppar is not overwhelming, but it is noticeable. It is like a very well made APA, with a light spicy white peppar character.
