Pours a dark color with little carbonation. Smell's like a typical porter, but that is where the typical ends. The toasted malt tastes great with a perfect balance of pepper spice that stays with you for a minute or two. I love pepper beers, and I believe this one is the best one I've had. I hope Left Hand brings this back sometime.

12oz bottle into a Globe.

Pours black with a large brown head, good retention, and good lacing. I would have expected the pepper to cause issues.

Aroma is amazing - rich chocolates, slight hint of capsaicin. Smokey.

Flavor is full and interesting. Slight sweetness is balanced by both the roastiness and heat. I can't distinguish the peppers, but everything blends together wonderfully.

Mouthfeel is full, slightly heavy for a porter, but works very well given the rest of the beer.

Overall the Pepper Porter is a great, unique beer. The peppers work great in the bolder porter.
