From Wagga Wagga brewery Thirsty Crow comes Deets of the Devil, a smoked chilli porter beer with an ABV of 6%. Depending on your taste, we found this beer to be either just the right balance of chilli, or in Jeff’s case, seriously lacking in chilli. But overall, it’s a very solid porter and the perfect starting point if you are interested in getting into smoked chilli beers.
It’s definitely portery. I quite like this beer, and it could quite possibly be because I can detect no chilli in it at all.
If I had to describe it I would say mildly-smoked chilli porter. I think the chilli hit works. This is a gateway smoked chilli beer.
It’s fine, it’s interesting, and the chilli adds a little bit to the flavour. But for my taste it’s kind of, it just feels like a standard porter that just has a bit of chilli in it.
Deets of the Devil by Thirsty Crow Brewing Company was featured in Season Two, Episode Four.
