3.93/5  rDev +5.1%

(A) Pours opaque black like one would expect from a stout. Small brown head at the beginning but immediately leaves making it appear the beer is flat.

(S) Cherrys, dark grapes, other mixed dark fruit. Almost a bit of booze and heat in there. Some dark roasted malts are somewhat present.

(T) The port is very strong and heavy in the flavor. It tastes very much like wine and the red/dark grapes are present. Some sweet chocolate and coffee is paired in the taste and there is almost a bit of a heat at the end, like a pepper.

(M) It's flat, almost like it went from barrel to bottle. Full body. Oily and really smooth. Like a syrup.

(O) Really decent brew, but a little bit of carbonation would have helped. Glad I got to try it. It was very heavy on the port and almost didn't seem like a beer, but it was delish.

S - Smells like raspberry jalapeños as there is a Raspberry port up front and then there are earthy jalapeños in the backend up front 2.5

T - Raspberry and chocolate before waves of jalapeño comes thru. It has some heat but tastes just like an earthy, jalapeño flavor.

M - Medium body with carbonation and yet an earthy presence from the jalapeños

O- This could have been good if it had some heat and chili spice but instead this was just overpowered by a strong jalapeno flavor which when combined with the sweetness of the Port was just an odd flavor that I didn't enjoy.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body with no head. Kinda lifeless.

Smell - Lots of peppers. And not much else. A little bit of milk chocolate.

Taste - Light barrel, but it's all peppers. Lightly chocolatey. Spicy finish.

Mouthfeel - Highly carbonated and kinda spicy.

Overall - This just isn't a very good beer.

On tap at Three Floyds over Christmas. Reviewed from notes.

Pours near-black with a very thin whisp of a tan collar. No really lacing. The nose carries a really nice port character along with some chiles. The port portion was much nicer and the chiles take over too much. That is especially true in the flavor, and then even more over the top in the feel. While I like the combo of the chiles and port, the chiles are just far too forward and take over the other aspects of the beer. Some chocolate and light roast in the background as well. Overall, not a big fan of FFF's use of chiles between this and Dark Lord De Muerte.

Thanks for sharing this rarity, Richard.

Pours black in color with a small tan head. The chili aroma is really quite strong. It's got a very green aroma with a light earthiness. There is some wine and oak character as well as a bit of roast and maybe vanilla. The flavor isn't very spicy and first, but the heat comes on the finish. A strong, very strong, pepper flavor. Lots of green pepper notes as well as earthy tones. Some dark chocolate, port, plums, and roasted malts. Medium body with low to medium carbonation.

Bottle 199 of 217

Pours an oily reddish hued black with discernible transitions in color. Head is minimal.

Nose is unmistakable port. Big grapey sweetness , red fruits, and lingering chiles in the periphery. The base is pretty much obliterated on the smell.

Taste follows suit....massive port presence, little semblance of any Moloko milk stout other than the thin-ish base beer, Very fruit driven...milk chocolate covered raspberries. Finish is a tidal wave of spicy peppers. Heat bites at the tongue and lingers hot at the back of the throat, with the intensity rising as the beer warms. Even as a lover of chiles, the spice is a beast.

Mouthfeel resembles more port than stout. Strange in that many parts of this beer really shine but the sum of the parts falls a bit short in the flat port feel, with no resemblance of a stout.

A port chile driven machine....those wary of port or chiles should stay far away, as should anyone expecting anything tasting of Moloko. A fun try...happy to have tried this...but a weird beer. This guy walks on the other side of the block, says Kyle.
