1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into an Odell 90 Shilling pilsner glass in me friend's gaff in high altitude Fort Collins, Colorado. Reviewed. Expectations are below average.
Served straight from the fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.
Not paired with food.
A: Pours a two finger khaki colour head of nice thickness, slight cream, and good retention. Body colour is a very dark brown-black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Typical for a porter.
Sm: Dark malts, a metallic note, hints of very light restrained chili, and caramel. An average strength aroma.
T: Light restrained chili and dark malts, with some caramel. A bit of spicy resurgence on the finish. The chili is quite weak; why brew a chili beer if you're hardly going to use the chilis at all? Imbalanced and bland. Quite boring. The second act is rather empty; it's just the malty base. Lacks flavour.
Mf: Smooth and wet. Overcarbonated. Too thick for a chili beer - or even for a porter, given its lack of flavour. It just doesn't have hardly any depth.
Dr: Drinkable but boring and bland. I wouldn't get this again. A pretty tame chili beer; it seems more like they're cashing in on the cachet appeal of a chili beer than sincerely brewing one. A poor show from Eddyline.
