Had on tap at Winterfest 2013. Great spicy pepper, smoked sausage scent and taste. Had some nice black pepper taste and a decent roast. One of my top favorites of the night.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 On tap at Winterfest 2013. Muddy brown pour and no notes of any head so either none or I forgot to mark it down. Pretty cool these two have already done a collaboration together and it was a solid brew.
Had again at ABR 2013 and bumped my ratings to go from 3.7 to 4.1.

Dark brown with light mocha head. Nose of pepper flesh and heat, slight oatmeal and chocolate background. Taste of caramel, green pepper, sweet toffee, fig and light yeast. Spicy burn is big enough to make an impression, but doesn’t overpower the great porter.

Holy smoked peppers, batman. Not spicy peppers but roasted peppers. Smelled it from over a foot away! That is the main draw if this brew. I could not drink much of it but the flavor profile is so unique and interesting that a great rating is due.

Pretty good for a pepper beer. Smokiness is very present from the quality collaboration brewery
