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.

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.
m- medium
o- This is the first peppered beer besides Prairie bomb that works for me. I could enjoy a couple of these before moving on.

Slow rising and fast falling tan foamy head. Brew is light black. No lacing to speak of.

Chalky, lots of coffee, and milk chocolate.

Thin, watery, missing much complexity. For being a "pepper porter", I'm not picking up on any pepper other than extremely faint backend hints. Awkward high carbonation and funky chalky/dry bitterness. lots of weird chocolate flavors.

Not sure I can recommend as compared to the others in the series... Lefthand can surely do better.
