Rich porter brewed with chocolate malt, dutch chocolate and ancho chilies. There's a special magic that happens between chilies and chocolate that was first utilized in ancient Latin America and still weaves its spell today. Ancho Chili Dutch Double Chocolate Porter showcases the perfect balance of chili flavor and warmth combined with dark chocolate. This is not a hot pepper beer – The warmth from the chilies builds slowly, enhancing the character of the beer without becoming dominant. Far from being a novelty beer, the richness of chocolate malts and Dutch cocoa combined with the deep, smoky flavor imparted by whole Ancho chilies while the beer is conditioning will keep you coming back for more.
We brew this unique and luscious beer with fresh orange zest, single ingredient juice and a careful blend of dark chocolate malts so that the juicy flavor and delicate aroma of fresh oranges wafts from your glass.
Savor it slowly and relax.
King IPA Noir – 6.7%
Lizard King is a full bodied black IPA, Chocolaty black India Pale Ale with a complex mixture of hops registering on the palate and in the nose. The flavor hops play with the chocolate and light roasty flavors while the bittering hops support the big body with a brisk bitterness. John’s tribute to Jim Morrison of the Doors.
Temple of Heaven Honey Ginger IPA – 7.0%
Brewed with loads of fresh ground whole root ginger, malted barley and BTF Honey. This IPA has an assertive staunch bitterness that twirls with the ginger above the caramel malt body below. Soft ginger in the nose will be your first greeting with this lovely strong lady!
This great summer quencher is the first lager to make an appearance here
at B.T.F. It’s unfiltered, unpasteurized
and hoppy with a brisk and firm bitter foundation.
