Enjoyed on tap at the Beer Trappe in Lexington, Kentucky.
This beer pours dark black with a white fine bubble rim. Excellent lacing. The smell is awesome, smokey jalapeño, charcoal, dark roasted malts and chocolate. The taste follows the nose very well. Much of the same notes but very muted. Some slight heat that builds but mild none the less. Not overwhelming at all. The feel is extremely smooth - which was very surprising - with light to moderate carbonation.
This beer rocks. I would never imagine how well it works together without being overwhelming or too one dimensioned. I could actually drink more than one at a sitting. It kind of rocks your taste buds which is a slight negative. Folks need to watch out for Country Boy. They are the real deal and keep coming up with innovative but amazing ales. Kentucky is fortune to have them.

DH and the guys do an exceptional job brewing in general, and this is a great example. They take fresh jalapenos they grow themselves, and add them to their already quality porter to make one fine beer. The jalapenos add to the flavor without overwhelming the taste. I like the XX and XXX versions even better.

This was a strange beer but in a good way. Being from Arizona, I use jalapenos in almost every dish. The only reason I don't rate this higher is the middle kick. About midway through my pint there is an almost excessive smokey taste that settles after a minute or two. One of the best beers I have had when it comes to picking up the actual flavor of jalapeno vs. just the bite.

A - Black. Porter looking.
S - Slight coffee. something "spicy" that's funky... no doubt the jalapenos
T - A porter. Burnt astringent coffee. (That's all i normally get from porters, this review is biased bc I'm just not a porter guy.) But then you can definitely taste the jalapenos on the back. I'd say the perfect amount of jalepenos. Not overbearing, there's still most definitely the porter taste there, and the heat is enjoyable.
Overall, I was thrown off by the idea of jalapenos in a beer. Definitely a good idea to put them in a dark beer, not a lighter beer. I love stouts, so i would love to see a jalapeno stout!
