3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bomber pours dark brown with finger of sustaining, bubbly tan froth. Aroma of cocoa, milk, chili. Flavor is a nice burnt roast with lingering chili pepper on the finish. One of the better chili beers I have had, although I haven’t had a lot.
The beer is a bit too busy for my tastes. Has some smokiness, some light pepper, tobacco, chocolate, and pine. Sledutah (7788) - Utah, USA - OCT 19, 2013
22oz bottle picked up at Wilburs GT (10002) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Pours dark brown with a medium sized tan head and good lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, peppers and smoky. Flavors are dark malts, smokiness, chocolate with a mild heat in the back of the throat
A good chile porter, not much heat but you know it’s there. Thin mouthfeel
651mL thanks to bri. Clear cola brown. Weak head. Most is mild lemon, dusty cocoa. Tastes brings lemon tea, moderate chili heat is present but not intense. Lactic, thin finish. Easy to drink. That1Guy (2237) - Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Bomber with a very pretty label. Pours dark reddish brown with a tan head with a bit of lacing. Pretty earthy nose, with some chilies, kinda green pepper, and tobacco. Very watery mouthfeel. The chilies pleasantly burn the back of my throat, but it’s mostly dirt, the smokiness is more like cigarette smoke, and overall way too thin. It has potential.

From the February 2013 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled form a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small foamy brown head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was dry chili peppers, chipotle, toasty malts and anise. The flavor was hop peppers, smoke, old shoes and rubber. Very long and smoky rubber finish. Medium body. Not good at all.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 UPDATED 5.24.2013. Pours a dark brown with a half finger of tan head that dissipates quickly, Smells slightly roasted, dark malt, spicy. Flavor is dark malt, bitter chocolate, slightly smoky up front, fades into vegetal and pepper tones, slight heat, and roasted tones that linger. Moderate carbonation and medium-light body, a bit juicy. This beer uses the peppers nicely, pretty well balanced, more so than I recall. An interesting, enjoyable beer, better the second time around. digwhyme (3) - lakewood, Colorado, USA - DEC 10, 2012 does not count
Really loved the aroma of this beer. Slightly smokey, toasty with a nice shot of chilis. Rich dark color. Full of big flavors of smoke but not overwhelming like some Porters; this one is smooth. Along with a good dose of spice on the finish which lingered for a long time. If you like full flavors and smooth you will like this one. Found it at Lukas Liquor where the beer guy said they just added items from this brewery. drjay44 (3795) - Salida, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2012 650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, light beige head,, with minimal lacing, over a clear reddish brown (SRM 20) body....nose is chili powder, coffee, light chocolate, very light hints of intestinal gas of a barnyard type (? the light smoke)......taste is dominated by chili spice, light coffee, hints of chocolate, finishing with a lingering chili burn......mouth feel light, near watery, carbonation medium. The chiles were used with a relatively heavy hand and dominate the malt backbone too much for this to be at all balanced. A bit more chocolate malt and some other toffee/caramel sweetness would have made for a much more interesting, and balanced beer. Finally, the odd barnyard aroma is an obvious mistake, but may have been the smoke. Could there have been a pre-filtration infection? BJCP 6/3/8/4/5
