COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oaxacan-Style Dark Ale brewed with piloncillo sugar and chile ancho. 5 Vulture is a deep amber-colored ale with complex caramel aromas with toasted sugar notes and a long, elegant spicy finish. Roasted ancho chile is used to add depth and complexity, without adding heat or strong chile flavors.

Draft. Poured a clear light brown color. The head was thin and off white. Cloying diacetyl dominated the aroma. There were also whiffs of nondescript spices. Medium bodied and moderately sweet. Buttery caramel and spice flavors with a hint of chocolate. No chile pepper to speak of in my opinion.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Smells like beer with a bit of pepper in it. Tastes like beer with a bit of pepper in it. Not as overpowering as some of the other ancho chile in it. Might be a good into to spicy beer. Otherwise, not a whole lot going on in this one.

Patrickctenchi (3441) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours clear, dark, wet copper with a tall, thick, tan head. Scent is spiced caramel....sugar... Taste is caramel....chilis are noticeable but not overblown..... Malty. Increasing peppery tones as it warms and finishes. An interesting little oddity....well worth a try.

Blairgus (2561) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2012
17 nov 2012, bottle. Nut brown, clear. Nose is sickly sweet malt, maybe some grape jelly. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Sweet caramel malt. Really sickly caramel malt. Ugh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium brown color with a beige head. Spicy chili aroma with some malty undertones. Dry, spicy finish. Not in love with this one.

12 oz bottle pours a clear brown/copper color with a decent beige head. Smells soapy. Aroma has chili, light caramel malts, with a touch of cocoa and perhaps some hops. Medium body with more spice than carbonation. Something interesting, local, and different, but I’m not sure if I’ll try it again.

cheap (3966) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle w/ twist off cap. Sterile vanilla aroma. Brown liquid. Quite strong on the taste buds, a new strong sensation. Hah, a pretty good craft beer from minhas. A little too strong for me but I bet you’ll like it.

BT (123) - Westchester, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Very tasty, aroma of light chilis/peppers with some grain and slight malts, little hops, poured dark amber brown. Tastes of chilis too, lightly, caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent dark ale. Anchos are mild, add a nice fruity and dark tone. Not terrible.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a beige head. Aroma is of smoked chili, caramel and toffee and some dark fruits notes with cocoa bean. The flavor follows the nose with subtle chili spice and the smoked chili flavor, some caramel, toffee, dark fruits and cocoa bean. The body is medium with a silky mouth feel. Overall an interesting brew.
