Now I am not a fan of the “heat”. I keep trying pepper laced beers and I keep having to hose my burning tongue down.
But this beer gives me a nice hit of spice mixed with vanilla and chocolate. Balance! Thanks God for the brew that mixes well. There is a really heady capsaicin hit on the nose that worried me but the flavor brings out a milder and milk stoutier taste that I like. Even though no lactose was added
Some people enjoying the “crime” and “punishment” of pepper, but I much prefer the balance and this beer has it.
