Elusive Brewing Aztec Challenge (6%)

I’ve known Andy Elusive since he was a home brewer and I’ve watched him move into the professional beer market with energy and enthusiasm and lots of good beer.
This, his Smoked Chilli Porter, is really worth hunting down.
It pours a deep purple brown and smells of cherries and red bell peppers, rich and fruity, warm and enticing.
There’s a good treacle tart and toffee, brown bread and honey malt along with the crackle of crispy conker and red leaf litter hops, some peach and lemon curd freshness while a woody chocolate smokiness and a red piquant chilli heat slowly build, making for a finish that’s warm and round and sensual.
Cheers Andy, this is ace and went well with Whirling Pig Dervish’s 1994 LP, “Three Small, One Tall”.
