3.13/5 rDev -18.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Presentation: 12 oz brown with a simple yet inviting label...b&w flames with bubbles...
Appearance: Jet-black with a clinging tan lace that seems to stay for a while.
Smell: Lots of malts, chocolatewith hints of charcoal, more roasted malts and a touch of marshmellow...
Taste: Pretty smooth start with a nice medium bodied mouth feel. After the luscious mouth feel come the flavour which is quite malty, followed by the spicy pepper tones...the spice of pepper lingers until the end there 'are' chocolate/mocha flavors (espresso) along the way from the malts, but with each and ever sip, the 'pepper' is what sticks out (hence the name) ... not many hops to mention...
Notes: This one is interesting...The pepper thing kind of killed it for me...if the pepper was left out, I think it would have been better...I'll give orininality though, but I think 'THAT' kind of stuff should be left for 'session' beer, or special 'tap-room' show-cases...chasin' cheers :~)

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.
