Draft to pint. Looks decent; dark brown with thin white lacing. Smells a little skunky and metallic. Tastes like it smells but better with some bitterness. Mouthful is average. Good...for how cheap it is.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the July 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark nut brown color with a huge foamy beige head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was malty and nutty with a hot pepper presence. The flavor was tangy, malty and a touch skunky with notes of nut and hot peppers. The finish was medium length tangy, nutty and hot pepper. Medium body. Odd.

Pours a mahogany color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty strong of the caramel malts with only a hint of the chile. Flavor is also overly sweet from the caramel malts. A slight hint of the chile comes out on the finish with only a slight spicy flavor on the finish.

I have had some beers that were pretty heavy on the chiles, this was a bit more mild than I was anticipating. It’s got a nice sweet caramel flavor that balances the smoke and the spice. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark hazy red with an off white head. Aromas of caramel malts and mediciny smells. Taste sweet malts from the get go but has a spice that lingers for awhile. I haven’t had many beers like this one. Not a bad thing to try now and then.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle version. Pours a amber brown with a tall beige head. Sweet malty aroma candy like with a touch of yeast and banana. Sweet caramel malts with a touch of roasted malt. Red fruit flavors underneath that black pepper ancho spice. No real heat to the spice but a bitter lasting black pepper finish. I enjoyed the tap version a little more which seemed to have more dark fruits in it, but this one is pretty tasty as well.
