Posted my 1000th commercial beer review today. Decided to go to Freetail Brewing and have some on-tap beer goodness and a pizza to commemorate the occasion. The beer I chose for the occasion was Freetail’s Chipotle Porter.
Flavor and Aroma notes:
Aroma is just a touch of pepper, but lots of roasty, dark malt goodness. Flavor is heavily weighted towards the peppers, it’s pretty spicy and might be a bit more than some beer drinkers would prefer. The staff will be quite forward about it tho, ask for a sample.
Body is medium and leaves a lingering pepper heat.
Overall: Very porter like in appearance and aroma. More pepper-beer like in taste.
Now as pepper beers go, this is a fine one. There’s a good strong pepper presence, with a good little touch of heat. Spicy! But very enjoyable! And the pizza was damn good too!
Yakked with the staff and one of the brewers for a while too. Picked up an Old Bat Rastard for my buddy, and for my self. Great job on making great beer Freetail!
