COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust brown porter brewed with cacao and ancho peppers. The result is a medium bodied porter with subtle hints of chocolate, mild pepper spice and licorice. The 6 different malts are offset by 3 different hop varieties contributing a mild hop bouquet with notes of rose and chrysanthemum. A non-intimidating dark beer full of complexity!
