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.

Aroma of chocolate, and caramel. Pours a deep brown with thin tan head. Surprising rich caramel malt taste, sweet. Caramel lingers, almost too long, finishes with right amount of bitterness (mild). Aftertaste lingers a bit. Surprised by the spice/herb/vegetable classification....tastes more like Vienna lager minus the crispy, dry finish.

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.

Awktoberfest (346) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2013
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

zgaier (1751) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2013
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

jjgmd (1821) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2013
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
