4.4/5 rDev +14.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - aggressive pour from bottle to an over-sized wine glass generated about 4 fingers' widh of mocha-colored head with tight bubbles. Couldn't get all of the beer in. Head subsides into a ring, leaving a sticky, impressive lacing all around.
S - milk chocolate, and capuccino right off the bat, followed by roasted malts, slight smokiness, and very mild peppery, tobacco notes.
T - follows the nose. Capuccino, milk chocolate followed by roastiness, finishing with smokey pepper finish. Just enough spiciness to cut the sweetness and prepare the palate for another sip. Slight lingering heat from the peppers as well. Remarkably well done; I really dig this one.
M - medium to medium-full, incredibly well-layered bringing out pronounced flavors of the above mentioned components.
O - this drink is an easy A for me. If I were to take the price point into consideration this is an A+. Easily the best porter for me, that comes in a six pack.

The beer comes in a dark brown/black color.
The aroma has tons of roasted malt and coffee.
The flavor follows with a roasted malt, loads of coffee, and then this rye spiciness on the finish. Some toffee sweetness in the middle.
The mouthfeel is medium.
The rye is a bit in this well made porter like beer.
Serving type: on-tap

a - dark brown, nearly black. Quickly dissipating head
s - roasty and coffee in the nose.
t- same on the taste with smokiness and subtle hints of chili.
o- This is the first peppered beer besides Prairie bomb that works for me. I could enjoy a couple of these before moving on.
