Great beer that does not burn with chili but keeps you thirsty, - has a great flavor and for a porter, you can drink a ton of it!

Full bodied, brewed with only two ingredients: fire and smoke. This beer is amazing, basically brewed for temperatures below 40 degrees. Moreover you can marinate steak with this beer, make beef stew, etc, its every bit as much culinary as it is a good beer.

Pours black with a tan head. Cocoa roasty aroma with a slight bit of heat. Smoky pepper flavor, roasty coffee and cocoa. Well done here.

Pour on tap at Crunchy’s dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, pepper, some slight coffee notes into a bit of dark fruit, smoke, chipotle notes. Taste was a mix of dark fruit, coffee, nice cocoa powder into a bit of smoky, peppery notes with a hint of heat, slight roast, finishing slightly bitter.

Tap: Completely black with a luscious, foamy tan head. Creamy. Aroma is simple, but enjoyable. Roasted malt, light cocoa powder, semisweet chocolate, & a touch of back-end peppery spice. Big baker’s cocoa & a heavy toasted nut compliment up front with each sip. Peppers creep in thereafter, tingling the senses with a nice amount of heat. Builds with each sip. The chocolate malts & nuttiness try to maintain balance but the heat is pretty intense about halfway through the beer. Quite tasty, as I typically like spicy things, but smaller sample sizes are definitely the way to go.

Bottle shared at Porch Nite. Pours a dark brown with two fingers of tan head. Aroma is malty and slightly roasty. No real pepper on the nose. Flavor is roasty with some dark fruits and maltiness. Very smooth. Not really any chipotle flavor but there is some burn on the finish. Overall, a nice porter.

On draft The Firestarter pours black with a dark brown head that lasts a bit. The aroma is chocolate, caramel and a bit of spicy pepper. The flavor is chocolate and caramel initially with the pepper joining in the aftertaste and the spice hanging on for a while. Overall this is a pretty decent brew.
