3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Max’s, Baltimore. Thick, sludgy pour which I could almost believe has an oily consistency from the chilis. Thick head with tons of roasted malts and campfire in the nose. Big velvety mouthfeel with a nicely gritty back ened. A fine smoked porter, but I think the chiles could be more assertive to give it a bit more distinction from other entries.

Tap. Pours opaque with a small, frothy tan head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and roast malt with light pepper notes and a smokey character. Flavor is lightly spicy peppers and smokey, dark malts with medium bitter hops and a dry finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.
