3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at brew pub. Creamy, Dark roast. Slight coffee. Overall, though, this porter has bit of a thin body and is not exactly a porter as listed on board.
Pours black with a fair bit of head into stemware. Aroma is really roasty. Mouthfeel is fairly carbonated and thin. Taste is a bit abrasive. Not sweet, a tiny hint of pepper, and a lot of roasted flavors: oatmeal, coffee, malt, chocolate. It’s not super exciting or easy drinking Metallion66 (104) - - NOV 30, 2013
Delicious Chili beer. Great mouthfeel, not too thick, not too thin. Aroma was a little lacking, but the taste was a fantastic mix of roast and chocolate with a slightly spicy finish. Would drink again. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle from the brewpub. Dark brown to black with a tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate with some peppers and a bit of licorice. Flavor is roasted malt with some smokey chipotle pepper notes. I get some chocolate and some light ash notes. There is some heat from the pepper. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

This beer is through the roof - packed with flavors of chilies and cacao. Its roasted malts give it a deep color and slightly sweet taste. Party in my mouth!

On tap at the brewpub. Black pour with a small tan head. Aroma is pepper, maybe smokey, and chocolate. Taste is angry spices and astringency. Awkward finish. kidmartinek (5001) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2012
Very dark brown. The light barely pierces it. Frothy off-white head. Very strong licorice and coffee aroma when agitated. Otherwise not much aroma at all. Dried cayenne chillipepper taste. Straight chili powder. Weird. More like a funky drink than a beer. It leaves one bit wavy into of lacing on the glass as you drink it. The finish leaves a bite on the lips and a burn in the belly. onceblind (10320) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2011
GABF 2011. Pitch black with a fading light tan head. Smells of burnt cocoa, herbal peppers, a small kick of coffee, and whey protein mix. Flavor was big-ish with dark milk chocolate, with a peppery green heat. A little astringent, really burnt, with loads of herbal tones. Weird.
