***Batch 25, bottled 1-14-14***

Bought directly from the brewery, poured from a 750ml bottle.

Pours a dirty brown muddled body with pretty good retention. Aroma has a nice spicy pepper to it. Flavor though is a let down. Mild black pepper mixed with spicy habanero but not as powerful or forceful as on tap at the brewery.

Serving type: bottle

3.41/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

The beer comes in a light brownish orange.

The aroma has heavy pepper skin notes, rye and breadiness.

The flavor follows of that fresh green pepper skin note. There's some stone fruit from probably the yeast. There's a dense spicy peppery rye character. The heat is almost nonexistent.

A disappointing brew without much heat and complexity.

Serving type: on-tap
