UPDATED: NOV 12, 2015 Central Jersey Beer Festival. Spicy...but not too much. Probably an improvement on the standard founders porter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from cask at the 10th annual Barley’s Mini Real Ale Fest on 05/04/13: The beer is a dark brown color with a thin beige head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of smoked malt and peppers. Medium body with a smoky character and flavors of malt, dark chocolate and subtle chili peppers. The finish is chocolatey with a mild pepper aftertaste. Decent beer but the treatment takes away more than it enhances.
