On tap at O'Brien's for 2012 SDBW.
A: Deep, slick black with a ring of fine, medium dark brown head. No real lacing, but it retains the foam quite well. Almost like looking at an espresso.
S: Sweet, spicy red pepper aroma, a bit of the base Speedway chocolate and coffee, and also a lot of red cherry (?!).
T: Sweet red fruit up front and then a shock of spice with a long, slow finish. The spice is quite intense and lasting. I would put it at like a 7 on the Thai takeout 1-10 scale. It disappears after a few minutes, and doesn't burn out your palate. The fruitiness is really what makes this for me.
M: Silky, full bodied, and medium-light carbonation which works wonderfully with the body.
O: Pretty tasty for a pepper beer, I have to admit. The red fruitiness is really what makes this so unique and interesting. If you're not into spicy foods, this will be way overpowering, but otherwise it's definitely worth a try.
