AROMA - very light Belgian scent. Not too much else.
APPEARANCE - very light golden color, totally clear with light head.
TASTE - hints of Belgian flavor, but overall a pretty weak offering even for a blonde.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark brown color with a modest, quick fading, light tan head. Aroma has a sweet molasses and malty nose, light toasted notes with a touch of chocolate. Flavor starts off with a very sweet molasses kick followed up by a nice sweet/toasted malt combo and finishes with a light peppery touch. Body is low in carbonation, smooth with a light sugary feeling and light heat from the pepper. Overall not a bad brew. The pepper doesn’t dominate the flavor and add just a touch of heat which works very nicely with this brew.

I really had high expectations for 5 Rabbit 5 Vulture based on other 5 Rabbit brews I’ve had, but this one definitely didn’t deliver. Drank in recommended tulip glass. Tan head dissipates very quickly on top of the dark pour. Not much aroma -- maybe a hint of caramel. Taste is sweet and syrupy -- kind of like a Coke that has been sitting around. There just isn’t enough of the ancho chile notes to claim it is there. Very little heat. Given what I paid for a six pack, I am disappointed with 5 Vulture.
