Mild nose. Mild sweet chocolate, roasted chipotle peppers. Light lactose, bit of earthy hops. Nice body, long finish. Almost like a chocolate covered (very mild) jalapeño. Niced balanced well made chili porter.

Une bière riche mais peut être un peu trop "herbée" bien mais pas top à goûter les autres volumes

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: June 29, ’12
A: Definite pepper aroma mixed with chocolate.
A: Pours a dark almost black color with a light tan head that disappears quickly with no lacing.
T: Nice chocolate flavor in the front finishing with a roasted peppery aftertaste. Spice is subtle.
P: Little carbonation that rolls nicely on the palate.
O: I’m usually not a fan of spicy beers, but this one is nice and subtle with the pepper notes on the finish for the most part.

Tap at Dexters. Opaque brown-black. Big, creamy beige head. Roasty chocolate and black pepper aroma. Smooth, milk chocolate tones dominate. Pretty good, rather mellow pepper tones. Interesting, decent Porter.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From notes: Poured into A Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.
A - Pours almost black, with a fleeting head that dissipates into nothing. Not a trace of lacing.
S - Roasted malt, old coffee grinds, licorice, cocoa.
T - Roasted malt, has a slight smoked flavor, dairy and cocoa, minor chili heat.
M - Medium to moderate carbonation, medium body.
An average porter, not what I was expecting. Chili is muted at best and has very dull components. Seems a little forced and underwhelming. Dairy and cacao are present at the end but don’t mix like milk chocolate would. It’s a good drinker but it’s not worth seeking out.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks and pours like a stout / porter. Smells like a porter (maybe it’s too cold right now?) Tastes interesting and fantastic! Cola and coffee with some pepper sharpness though the most interesting thing is how the pepper hits ya in the back of the throat in the finish! Very cool, unexpected and tasty. Mrs. Brooha thinks it would go great with cheese of some sort.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black body with a quickly diminishing off white head. Sweet aroma with caramel, licorice, spices and plum. Sweet spicy flavour with lots of pepper, plum, licorice, a hint of coffee. Interesting, although a bit too much on the spicy side.
