4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Several glasses on tap at Sixteen Tons. Dark brown pour with a moderate tan head and almost no lacing. Light aromas of chocolate and smoke with a big peppery hit at the back end. Flavor is more pepper forward, excellent spicy bite to this beer. Possibly my favorite Upright beer thus far.

Tap. This is their six aged in a barrel with hot turkish peppers. This will be a component of their next turkey on rye I hear, the other component will be six aged with chocolate so the story goes. Looks like turkey on rye. Big tart aroma, rye. Sour, puckery, tart, rye, hits the back of the throat with peppers. This will be great with the chocolate, I think better than v1 of turkey on rye. Yum Yum Yum.
