3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle. Pours light brown. Flavor is malty and almost Belgian in depth and balance but with a definite ancho spice kick that makes you take notice. Itís like a Belgian Vienna packing heat.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Dark blood-brown. Scattered lacing. Malty nose. Notes of rye, caramel, very mild booze quality. Surprisingly refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Darker beer, maybe a muddy brown with a little dirty tan head. Aroma is a light alcohol and maybe some malty. Flavor is more malty than burned, which I appreciate. But itís still not quite my cup of hoppy IPA.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Caramel and brown sugar malt aromas.
Appearance: Dark amber with rich, tan head.
Taste: Medium sweetness with a hint of saltiness and edges of bitterness.
Palate: Medium body, thick texture, average carbonation, slightly salty, slightly smoky finish.
Overall: Not bad...Iím not blown away, but Iím also not disappointed. Thereís just nothing outstanding about this, and it was a bit pricey for a 6-pack.

I really had high expectations for 5 Rabbit 5 Vulture based on other 5 Rabbit brews Iíve had, but this one definitely didnít 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 isnít 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.

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

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. Poured a rich, dark brown with a tan head. Mild malt and spice aroma. Iím a pepper fan so I like the hit of Ancho Chilli. Itís an unusual beer, but it works for me.
