COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

16 ounce pour at Bad Apple in Chicago. The spice and cinnamon in this one really stand out and make it a great tasting and uniquely flavored beer. While there is a good amount of sweetness to it, that aspect isnít overwhelming and itís especially drinkable. I highly recommend this to anyone who can find it around town.

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.

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.

Tap. Dark blood-brown. Scattered lacing. Malty nose. Notes of rye, caramel, very mild booze quality. Surprisingly refreshing.

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.

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.

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

Bottle in Chicago. Very interesting aroma and taste. Pretty solid and unique beer
