Imagine Robert DeNiro sitting in your darkened parlour near the fire in his Louis Cyphre persona smoking a Tuscan cigar. This may be the beer with which to save (or lose) your soul. Dried fruit flavors entwined with smoky pepper and licorice embossed on roasty malt sweetness open on your tongue as the slow warmth of chilis creep up on your tongue and throat, finishing in an herbal smoke ring flourish.

    This poured a pitch black color with a moderate tan head. The aroma is dull with some chocolate, licorice, and only a hint of the pepper. The flavor is malty and a bit hot. It contains some green chilies, chocolate, and coffee. Some bitterness and smokey flavors also show in the aftertaste. Overall this is a nice beer and good for something different.

    Hearty for a porter, may as well be a stout, or stout porter if you are old fashioned and English. This beer is very straightforward initially with a heavy coffee, roast malt and chocolate base. The kicker is in the finish where a fantastic mellow pepper burn occurs after the beer is swallowed. Mild heat to entice with a milky, smoky after taste. Dark brooding pour with a hefty tan head and lots of lacing. Keeping in tradition with the Fade to Black theme, I was very pleased.

    sixer, at the Coops- shared with DjMarky .. . Pours a deep cola black .. light bubbles .. low foam, almost no lacing .. . light tar, sweet roast,.. and almost no spice, basically just heat in the throat .. . a pretty damn weak beer, only when its room temp does some chilli come through, but very disappointing brew- its like they just added chilli flakes to a stout .. . . He's spinning the ball on his finger! Just take it!

    Ah ha the newest FTB, the previous two were very nice so lets see if this one keeps the tradition going. Nice black body, not much head or lace to speak of. Aromas and flavors of roasted malts, some chocolate, coffee and the faintest hint of fruit. The pepper shows more in the aftertaste with a slight warming sensation, thankfully not overbearing like some beers. Overall a nice brew, the addition of pepper is 'different' but in a good way.
