Thanks Mike. Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a deep dark brown color with a thin white foamy head that trickled off at a decent pace. Some light sliding spider web lace. The aroma had some roasted malts, light smoke, little bit of chipotle heat, some tobacco, earthiness and some sweet wood. The flavor seemed to balance well between the roast, smoke and chipotle heat as it playfully blended on into the aftertaste and finish. The palate was about medium bodied with a good sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt good. Overall, pretty good spicy porter that I could have again if I could get it.

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.

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 Crunchy’s 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.
