COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Decent dark ale. Anchos are mild, add a nice fruity and dark tone. Not terrible.

DocLock (8331) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear dark brown with ruby edges and a 2-finger tan head. Nose is brown sugary malt, mild hops, earthiness, nuts. Tastes malty, with hops, vinous fruit, earthy chile as it warms. Unique, and the peppers emerge more late, and work pretty well with this.

12oz bottle. Clear brown color. Nice one-finger persisting khaki head. Good lace. Nice, unique and complex chile aromas. Toasty caramel malts. Nice sweet and spiced taste. Lighter, smooth carbonation, dry texture. Good, interesting ale.

deyholla (7590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2012
On tap. Pours a clear amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of bread and grains with a sweet backing. Flavor is is full of earthy grain with a hint of backing chocolate. The slightest hint of pepper in the finish. A bit thin.

BVery (7450) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Binny’s 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.

Ughsmash (7276) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottled. Poured deep garnety-amber with a tall, creamy, well-retained eggshell head. The aroma picked up toasted biscuits and rye bread with accents of sweet cocoa and toasty chiles.. too much sugar in the end for me. The flavor found sweet caramel and lesser cocoa at the core with toasted chilis and vanilla around.. finished with a pinch of peppers and raw, earthy sugar. Light-medium bodied and sweet on the palate.. the chilis helped interesting it up, but it was far from great.

phaleslu (7208) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Draft served in a pint glass at Bakersfield. Pours a deep, mostly clear amber color with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted chocolate and brown sugar, dried leaves, and very mild ancho chiles. The flavor is the same. Light-bodied, with a malty, earthy mouthfeel that isn’t spicy until late. Low-to-moderate carbonation. Went well enough with our Mexican food.

33 cl. bottle. Hazy dark amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma and flavour of caramel, malt, herbs, spice and bread.

swoopjones (6695) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle at coles in Chicago. Deeper amber pour, medium bodied. Caramel, molasses notes upfront with pepper/chili heat towards finish that lingers on the palate. Ok

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, mild caramel notes, light peppery spice, and a hint of earth. Not too bad, but wouldn’t seek out again.
