A- pours dark brown with just a bit of light creeping through, two-finger thick and creamy light-tan head lasts forever after the pour, leaving some nice lace behind, can't imaging a porter looking better than this
S- lightly roasted and smoky malt gives a little bit of chocolate aroma. I can actually smell the peppers more than I thought I'd be able to, it's like hot pepper extract and actually gives a little bit of bandaid aroma
T- the base porter itself is light and smoky with subtle chocolate notes and some earthy notes. The heat from the pepper is subtle and doesn't kick in until after swallowing the beer, a bit of heat fills the mouth. The pepper flavor itself is also subtle, but noticeable
M- medium body with low carbonation, creamy and thick mouthfeel leads to a silky smooth finish, heat follows in the back end
O- and interesting take on a porter. The base beer itself is pretty good, but I feel like it needed a little more smokiness to match up with the pepper flavor. As I'm finishing this, the pepper is becoming more noticeable in the palate. Definitely worth a try and might go well with certain foods
