The color is spot on but there isnít much head. A lot of roasted notes and smoke in the aroma. The flavor is like youíd expect. A velvety smooth smoked porter with chile heat at the end. Itís a late heat that really lingers. Iíd put the heat on a level close to a mild jalapeno.Certainly not overpowering. And, since itís a porter, if you search for some bittersweet chocolate, youíll find it. The smoke comes out more as it warms.
Really pleased with my first chile beer and I want more!

Tap @ Cardinal. The first thing that hitís you when you drink this is: "WOW". and "wow" is how you best can explain this beer. Itís fantastic and itís one of the best beers iíve tasted so far. Itís a solid porter with notes of dark chocolate. After a while a subtle burn from the chilies begin to linger in the back of the throat. Itís a a pleasant burn. A great beer to experience!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark black pour, head was big and light brown. On the nose its chocolate and lots of chili. I get almost a spicy hop smell, probably just the peppers though. On the taste the heat hits fist then a smokey, roasted flavour that seems to stay around. Iím not a fan of smokey beers but overall great brew.
