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 (4053) - Beaver Valley, 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.

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.

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.

Didn’t know what to expect, but really wanted to try this dark ale from local 5 Rabbit Cerveceria. The toasted, malty caramel and sugar aroma with a very slight ancho chile comes through. It’s a dark reddish hue with a very small head that dissipates quick and leaves very little lacing. Taste is of very slight brown sugar and the ancho chile. Not spicy per se, but it teases your tongue. Overall enjoyable and glad I tried it. Something local and out of the ordinary.

Pours cola brown with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, spice, and toasted malt. Toasted malt and caramel flavor with hint of pepper on the back end. Decent beer.

Tap at mellow mushroom. Spicy smell and dark ale pour. Great color. Medium light mouthfeel and very smooth. Pepper aftertaste is a bit off putting. ---Rated via my mouth

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.
