Left Hand Fade to Black Volume 3- Pepper Porter
Left Hand Fade to Black, Volume 3- Pepper Porter at Al’s of Hampden. The beer pours a black color with a bubbly tan head. The aroma consists heavily of chili peppers, chocolate, and toasted malts. The taste is smooth and dry with a bubbly mouth feel. There is good chocolate base, but the focus is a balanced pepper spice. There are also hints of toasted malts and caramel lingering in the background. The alcohol content is 6.8% ABV. I really enjoyed this version of Fade to Black, although probably not as much as last year’s version. It was a wonderfully put together porter with chili accents, and everything fell in to place nicely.
