The best Due South Beer I've had to date. A great balance of bold coffee, malts, vanilla notes and chili heat. Not heavy, not thin, but bodied very appropriately to keep it refreshing in the Florida heat. Very well done. I would love to try the Bourbon barreled version.

12 oz pour into a snifter glass on tap.

A: Body is black with no breaks in that continuity. Head is small and off white.

S: Peppers right up front, followed by some cinnamon, and chocolate, with maybe a hint of coffee.

T: As it hits your tongue you notice the cinnamon right away and then the peppers you can actually taste the pepper very well then the soight head from the peppers. Once you get to the middle you pick up some of the chocolate and coffee then it finishes with a more developed pepper taste and heat then cinnamon.

M: Medium to a lighter body the cinnamon gives it a little bit more of a lively carbonation feel then I think it has.

O: Excellent mexican porter here. The peppers really shine on this one whch is something I feel other types of these do not flesh out enough. Also enjoy the fact its not huge alcohol. This is something to definately be on the look out for.

Great looking stout, thick foamy head and lacing. Nothing really only the nose and nothing but peppers on the tongue. The ingredients in this one excited me, but the execution is way off. I wanted this to be similar Prairie Bomb but it fell short.

Looks like a nice porter - pours dark brown, like comes through, sits black in the glass with a light beige head. Cinnamon spice, pepper heat as well as a vegital note, cocoa and some sweeter vanilla that's more of a milk chocolate flavor - aroma and flavor on par with one another. Smooth medium bodied, goes down easy with a pepper kick at the finish.

Really nice.

growler into a snifter.

pours a dark brown, almost black with a nice appropriate head. the smell hits you right away with an intense heat! real in your face aroma. the taste starts out with some chocolate but the heat definitely takes over and lingers...though its not too much. a good amount of heat. I like it. medium bodied, mild carbonation.

overall enjoyable if you like a kick.
