Dark brown translucent appearance. Off white head with fair retention. Wonderful, spicy and roasted aroma in perfect balance. Flavor begans with an assertive pepper bite which mellows in the middle and finishes with a nice roasted flavor. This beer really showcases the jalapeno flavor without adding too much heat. Roasted malt compliments and balances the pepper perfectly. Moderate body and well carbonated. One of the best pepper beers I've had.

Brought by a friend to an impromptu bottle share. Not my style, but still thought this a decent beer. As advertised. Spicy. smoky porter. Decent porter...though bite from peppers was distracting to me. But if you're into drinking chili beers you would have no problem with this.

The capsaicin intensity is strong. This is a sipping porter, to be sure, unless you want your pharynx scalded.

DH and the guys do an exceptional job brewing in general, and this is a great example. They take fresh jalapenos they grow themselves, and add them to their already quality porter to make one fine beer. The jalapenos add to the flavor without overwhelming the taste. I like the XX and XXX versions even better.

This was a strange beer but in a good way. Being from Arizona, I use jalapenos in almost every dish. The only reason I don't rate this higher is the middle kick. About midway through my pint there is an almost excessive smokey taste that settles after a minute or two. One of the best beers I have had when it comes to picking up the actual flavor of jalapeno vs. just the bite.
