COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The poblano pepper is prized for its wonderful flavor and gentle heat. To create this unique brew, we have married fresh peppers and a southern English porter similar to the brown ales of Newcastle. This medium brown ale sports a rich, malty backdrop and the wonderful flavor of the poblano lasts well into the finish. Enjoy!

On Tap at Manayunk Brewing Company, Sept 2007. Poured amber-brown, with a moderate sized off-white head. Aroma of spicy pepper, with some malt in the background to calm things down. The flavor was initially that of a typical porter up front, with chocolate malt at the forefront, then chili pepper breaks through briefly and almost totally disappears. Interesting beer; pepper works well with the porter.

dark red, wispy beige head, hot peppery aroma with a bit of dark malt in the background, good balance between the pepper flavor and the chocolate malt, touch of caramel sweetness balances the pepper,

Tap @ Manayunk. Poured a clear deep chestnut with an off-white head. The aroma was smokey and spicey. It smelled like a fresh pepper. The flavor was malty with a moderately smokey middle and fresh pepper taste. The finish had a mild but long spice on the finish. Light-medium bodied.

Black with lacing type head. Spicy perper aroma with roasted malt mixed in. The taste was that of a porter with the peppers coming through in the middle notes. The finish was lighty roasted. Thinner body.

Sampled @ the ’Buy Fresh Buy Local Kick-off’ event @ Yards Brewery. Medium bodied porter and poblano peppers complimented each other. The spice of the peppers was evident in the "middle" of the porter. Not an overbearing chili beer, very well done.
