COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imagine Robert DeNiro sitting in your darkened parlour near the fire in his Louis Cyphre persona smoking a Tuscan cigar. This may be the beer with which to save (or lose) your soul. Dried fruit flavors entwined with smoky pepper and licorice embossed on roasty malt sweetness open on your tongue as the slow warmth of chilis creep up on your tongue and throat, finishing in an herbal smoke ring flourish.

Bottle @ fiddlers. Black pour, no head. Aroma is roasty, very spicy, some chocolate, yeast and some ash. Flavor is dominated by spicy peppers, hot and roasted. Quite dark, harsh and with a thin body. Still a likable brew.

Picked up a single bottle for $1.79 which was cool. Dark black, slight head. Smells like peppers, smoky sort of. Strong pepper flavor, smoke like serrano or something, and a hint of porter to balance everything. Alcohol was unnoticeable. Honestly I think I am really starting to like beers with peppers, yum.

Dark brown with a finger of fizzy head that vanishes within ten to fifteen seconds, leaving behind a thin skim and a rocky ring. Aromas of burnt chocolate chips, lingering smoke, mild peppery notes, coffee grounds. Something weakly catches the back of the throat, like ground black pepper or cinnamon. Sweet and slightly watery but blossoms into light roasted malts, bitter, dry chocolate, and peppercorns. A little bit of heat, accentuated by the carbonation and the body. You can feel it linger in your throat and on the top of your tongue. Like a flickering numbness that fades slowly. Aftertaste is slightly smoky. The heat will build, as I found when I got two bottles in, into a nice, warm baseline. Really pleasant. I enjoyed this beer more than the other pepper-concoctions of recent months. Surprisingly drinkable while preserving that little kick of heat that I am sure we’re all hoping for.
