Country Boy Brewing – Barreled Jalapeño Smoked Porter – 3 out of 7 smokestacks

To Øl – Smoke on the Porter, Fire in the Rye – 6 out of 7

I poured the whole thing down in there, all 0.375 liters. To Øl’s Smoke on the Porter, Fire in the Rye smelled malty-smoky, almost peaty, with a touch of chili in the nose. I took a sip and the first thing … Continue reading

Tyranena – Benji’s Smoked Imperial Porter brewed with chipotle pepper – 4.9 out of 7

I like this beer. I don’t like the word ballsy on the label, which is their way of describing the entire Brewer’s Gone Wild series of beers. Beer culture does have an irreverent angle to it, but I’d like that … Continue reading

Below are my thoughts that were jotted down while drinking this beer: Thick beer. Dark thick head. The head is so thick I can’t see my light for the opacity rating. Musty. Hot. Thick. Has Mikkeller ever made the same … Continue reading

Stone Brewing Co. – Smoked Porter w/ Chipotle Peppers – 4.3 out of 7 (better than ‘meh’)

As I’ve mentioned in other posts, I don’t like pepper beers. Nobody should be allowed to make them. It doesn’t make sense to mix the flavors of beer with peppers (although beer with smoke makes perfect sense to me). But, … Continue reading
