UPDATED: NOV 4, 2016 On tap at the brewery. Dark reddish brown pour. I smell pepper above anything else. Stout-like in the mouth, but this is definitely all about the Chipotle peppers. It burns some, but in a good way. Unique and tasty.

Great beer that does not burn with chili but keeps you thirsty, - has a great flavor and for a porter, you can drink a ton of it!

Full bodied, brewed with only two ingredients: fire and smoke. This beer is amazing, basically brewed for temperatures below 40 degrees. Moreover you can marinate steak with this beer, make beef stew, etc, its every bit as much culinary as it is a good beer.

Pour on tap at Crunchys dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, roast, pepper, some slight coffee notes into a bit of dark fruit, smoke, chipotle notes. Taste was a mix of dark fruit, coffee, nice cocoa powder into a bit of smoky, peppery notes with a hint of heat, slight roast, finishing slightly bitter.

Tap: Completely black with a luscious, foamy tan head. Creamy. Aroma is simple, but enjoyable. Roasted malt, light cocoa powder, semisweet chocolate, & a touch of back-end peppery spice. Big bakers cocoa & a heavy toasted nut compliment up front with each sip. Peppers creep in thereafter, tingling the senses with a nice amount of heat. Builds with each sip. The chocolate malts & nuttiness try to maintain balance but the heat is pretty intense about halfway through the beer. Quite tasty, as I typically like spicy things, but smaller sample sizes are definitely the way to go.
