This beer pours a deep clear amber with a minimal offwhite head to it, receded relatively quickly, not much lacing to speak of. Nose is of spices upfront, though blended that it's hard to decipher which spices are present in it, as the beer warms peppercorn is distinctive in the nose, and good presence of carmel in the nose as well. Taste is where all really comes through. The peppercorn gets you up front - yet not overpowering, strong presence but backs off enough to not take over the entire beer. Blended nicely is some caramel and bready malts that really even this beer out. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, light to medium carbonation, goes down pretty easily, thick and sticky. This is a fun beer to dry, or to have as a one off beer, would be good with a steak.

This beer pours a hazed, red color, and is topped by a beige head that fades to a ring. The aroma is malty with notes of chocolate and caramel. There's a mild spiciness: pepper and an almost cinnamon character, and some herbal hops.

A chocolate, malty sweetness is first evident, which mellows and thins to a grassy and herbal hop finish with a strong peppery bite. This beer is full-bodied, and strongly carbonated with a hot finish.

This was a very tasty beer, but it's a bit spicy.

Pepper! Very nice pepper taste. A bit of pepper in the aroma but Really hits you at the end of the palate. Really nice copper color. Fairly dry. Descent mouthfeel. Nice different beer. Pepper is not over powering, definately taste it but complements beer nicely.
