Notes/Commercial Description:
Good friends. Good beer. They are what get us through these insanely long winters in Minnesota. That’s why we teamed up with our friends at Northbound Smokehouse Brewpub in South Minneapolis to bring you Hot Box Imperial Smoked Pepper Porter. This collaboration beer is brewed with hickory-smoked peppers and malt cold-smoked over alder, maple and apple woods. Sweet and smoky, with hints of dark fruit and coffee, Hot Box provides just enough heat to keep you thawed during the coldest winter months. This beer may not be for everyone, but then again, neither are Minnesota winters!

Decent beer, imperial porter with smoked chiles, collaboration with Northbound Smokehouse. Dark brown, almost black, with a decent mocha head. Smell is peppery and a bit chocolatey. Taste is pretty hot, with a good chocolatey background. Lots of smoke. Good beer but I wouldn't seek it out again.
