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

Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a lazy dark brown, little to no head. Aroma has some interesting earthy notes with some peppers and topsoil. Flavor is earthy as well with some bittersweet bakerís chocolate, some peppery accents, a touch of day old black coffee. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Not half bad.

I think this beer deserve a better rating. Light malt aroma, caramel with spice. Good flavor...sweet roasted malts and of course the ancho chilies come through on the finish.

6 pack from Wallabyís. I really enjoyed talking to these guys at GABF and I loved their beer, so I was stoked to see 5 Rabbit on the shelves out here. This beer is a very dark red with a small head. Chili is there, but I could use more. Itís a sweet smelling beer with notes of cola, toffee and a bit of chocolate. The palate is medium with pretty active carbonation. Anchor chili comes out more in the flavor, which provides nice balance. I could still use more pepper and definitely a little more heat. Still, itís a nice beer. A malty, sweeter, well balanced ale.

Well, anything featuring a buzzard on the label canít get high marks for appearance. Dark brown with fine carbonation. Malty, doughy aroma with some acidity and roast. Tangy, brown sugar and molasses tones, slow burn spicy. Slightly heavy body. Standard 12 oz longneck. New Leaf Market.

I give them credit for trying something different with the ancho chiles, but it just doesnít work.

Bottle from Binnyís in Bloomingdale, IL. Dark cola pour with a small ring head. I really like the aroma on this - malty, hint of chocolate, and some chili spice. Taste is pleasant - mild roast, mild sweet, and again a hint of the roasted chili late but not spicy hot or anything. Decent brew.

Poured from the bottle of a six pack into a pint glass, smells sweet like malt, good negra. As is with most good cooking when anchos are used the spice makes an appearance about 15 seconds after the drink and makes a spicy and salty mouth feel that makes one instinctively take another drink. I always use a bottle of beer in my chili and Iím saving the 6th from this pack for my next one, canít wait.

Better than its 44 point rating if you ask me. Dark brown color. Aroma is malty, similar to a porter. Taste is similar to a lighter porter, malty, chocolate, with a tiny bit of sourness, very little hops and a tinge of chile spiciness, but not very much. Itís OK.

Picked up a 12 oz bottle at Trader Joeís and thought Iíd give it a whirl. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a tiny bit of head that is gone within 10 seconds. Aroma is malty and a bit spicy. Kind of like graham crackers but with a hint of the ancho chili near the end. Taste is sort of muddled. Itís a malt forward beer with weird vegital flavors and a hint of pepper that goes away quickly. It leaves sort of an unpleasant aftertaste as it sticks to your mouth. Iím not really a fan of this one.
