Dante's Porter was the first beer brewed with chili peppers that I tasted. I have always been a porter fan, and have recently branched out to craft brews. Dante's was a rather spicy beer. The chili accents were very strong. It was a great beer, but I suggest only having one.

Serving Type: Bottle

A - Very black at the core with a rough, almost burnt red, around the edge's of my glass. Beautiful head at the pour, but quickly faded to the faintest of bubble rings, wish it could have lasted longer.

S - First impressions were all roasted barley, after a second, maybe third wiff I began to notice the peppers, and it is now taking over all nose to me.

T - Big roast and coffee right out of the gate, backs up the nose with appropriate roast flavor for aroma. Almost immediately after, the peppers hit, roast takes a back seat again, and on to the heat. The heat isn't over bearing, but if you're not one for spicy items, I would avoid this beer, you might be able to handle it, but I can't imagine you enjoying it.

M - This is just fine, I typically seek out brews that start around the 7-7.5% range and higher, so for this 7% porter, I think they landed it well. If the pepper spiciness wasn't there, I don't know if it could stand on it's own, but it works as-is.

O - I received this in a trade as an extra, really glad I did, but I doubt that I would intentionally seek this one out again. Definitely worth trying, but again, if you're not into that "burn after you swallow" thing, I wouldn't bother at all. I will however seek out to try other brews from these guys.

A Porter with pepper kick, opened with caution outside ( Had a few gushers from these guys in the past )

Pours an effervescent mahogany with 3 fingers of mocha head. Minimal head retention & lacing. Some head retention & lacing

S: Smokey pepper, roastyness

T: Follows the nose, plenty of heat up front, coffee grounds as well front. Some dark chocolate mixes with pepper fire & then more coffee. Finishes with coffee, dark chocolate, roasty & ancho chiles

MF: Light/medium bodied, slight carbonation

I like the pepper kick on this one, in your face, but not insane. Nice effort from these guys, if you don't like pepper heat stay away from this one
