The only chilli beer I've had that wasn't completely disgusting and a surprise to find in America given that it is far closer to a British ale. Perhaps best left to chilli lovers in general though as it does pack a little bit of a kick. Has quite a distinct taste of chilli but is well balanced by the sweetness.

Only complaint with this beer is that as a small brewery they don't have wider distribution. I found this in a restaurant in Chicago and have never seen it anywhere since. Still have the bottle on my shelf as a reminder but really wish I could find this again.

Good. Not great. The hint of pepper at the end could be stronger. Otherwise tastes good.

12oz. Bottle

Pours a very nice dark brown color, very nice carbonation, with a nice one-finger creamy off-white head, which leaves some nice sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, with some nice chocolate/toffee notes. The taste is malty, with chocolate/toffee notes, very slight pepper notes. Medium body, yes there is that added depth.. Overall a very tasty brew, to me really no pepper notes at all. I've had a couple of these Chile Beer's lately and this one is not in the same class, but still a very tasty brew.

Not really spicy at all. It tasted like a very normal porter to me. I was a little disappointed.
