3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark brown color with a modest, quick fading, light tan head. Aroma has a sweet molasses and malty nose, light toasted notes with a touch of chocolate. Flavor starts off with a very sweet molasses kick followed up by a nice sweet/toasted malt combo and finishes with a light peppery touch. Body is low in carbonation, smooth with a light sugary feeling and light heat from the pepper. Overall not a bad brew. The pepper doesn’t dominate the flavor and add just a touch of heat which works very nicely with this brew.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I really had high expectations for 5 Rabbit 5 Vulture based on other 5 Rabbit brews I’ve had, but this one definitely didn’t deliver. Drank in recommended tulip glass. Tan head dissipates very quickly on top of the dark pour. Not much aroma -- maybe a hint of caramel. Taste is sweet and syrupy -- kind of like a Coke that has been sitting around. There just isn’t enough of the ancho chile notes to claim it is there. Very little heat. Given what I paid for a six pack, I am disappointed with 5 Vulture.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a lazy dark brown, little to no head. Aroma has some interesting earthy notes with some peppers and topsoil. Flavor is earthy as well with some bittersweet baker’s chocolate, some peppery accents, a touch of day old black coffee. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Not half bad.

I think this beer deserve a better rating. Light malt aroma, caramel with spice. Good flavor...sweet roasted malts and of course the ancho chilies come through on the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
6 pack from Wallaby’s. I really enjoyed talking to these guys at GABF and I loved their beer, so I was stoked to see 5 Rabbit on the shelves out here. This beer is a very dark red with a small head. Chili is there, but I could use more. It’s a sweet smelling beer with notes of cola, toffee and a bit of chocolate. The palate is medium with pretty active carbonation. Anchor chili comes out more in the flavor, which provides nice balance. I could still use more pepper and definitely a little more heat. Still, it’s a nice beer. A malty, sweeter, well balanced ale.

Well, anything featuring a buzzard on the label can’t get high marks for appearance. Dark brown with fine carbonation. Malty, doughy aroma with some acidity and roast. Tangy, brown sugar and molasses tones, slow burn spicy. Slightly heavy body. Standard 12 oz longneck. New Leaf Market.
