COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, mild caramel notes, light peppery spice, and a hint of earth. Not too bad, but wouldn’t seek out again.

Belmont bottle. Different overall. Kinda reminded me of a lighter porter with a hint of sweetness. I really didn’t get much from the chilis; maybe a little spice but no heat. Fine but a touch thin overall.

Tasting at LUSH. Poured clear burnt amber with a rim of foam. Aroma of slight nut and soap. Quite smooth slightly spicy taste. Not my taste.

Draft. Probably my least favorite of the 5 rabbit beers. Just kinda boring. Its like a dark version of your standard pale lager. The chilis dont really come out to play at all. Meh.

Dark amber pour with a brown head that totally went away. Aroma is malt and a hint of spice. Taste is malty, a little smoke and spice. OK flavor. The pepper is detectable as the beer warms. An ok beer.

Good beer... Tastes like a malty Oktoberfest with spice and more layers of complexity... Nice ale... Real smooth and drinkable not spicy... Just a slight hint towards the presence of the chili... Pretty good Chicago beer via Wisconsin ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber brown with a light tan head and unpleasant grainy aroma. Taste is of grains, malt, and caramel but overall doesn’t come together nicely while I dot get any chili. Not a good tasting craft beer

Dark amber pour, no head. Nose is grainy and not very agreeable. Taste is grainy and actually quite rancid. Could not finish it. Would rather drink a lager ! Please ! Quaff Score 2 / 10

Bottle at coles in Chicago. Deeper amber pour, medium bodied. Caramel, molasses notes upfront with pepper/chili heat towards finish that lingers on the palate. Ok

Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours an amber-brown with almost no head. Faint lacing. Aroma has sweet caramel, peat and rum raisin. Taste is sweet caramel, molasses, simple sugar and some vegetalness. Medium bodied and very sweet. Down through the glass, there is some presence of the chiles; more from a late burn than actual flavor. Very sweet and sticky. Finishes sweet with a light burn, and sweet. Hmmm. So sweet as to be undrinkable, although the chiles do help dry it out.
