2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This poured a slightly hazy lighter brown to dark red color with a beige head. Aroma was toasted and lightly roasted malts, some spice notes, maybe form the chiles, and some dark fruits. Flavor was very light chile spice and heat, but detectable, rounded of dark fruit and toasted grains finish. Better than expected.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Amber-brown body, respectable beige head. Big fruity ancho pepper aroma, coupled with some mild caramel chocolate. An interesting enough beer, sort of a Schwarz with some mild pepper tones. Not really balanced though, kind of a mess. Worthy of a tick, but probably not one to seek out.

Pours clear, dark, wet copper with a tall, thick, tan head.
Scent is spiced caramel....sugar...

Increasing peppery tones as it warms and finishes.
An interesting little oddity....well worth a try.

Bottle w/ twist off cap. Sterile vanilla aroma. Brown liquid. Quite strong on the taste buds, a new strong sensation. Hah, a pretty good craft beer from minhas. A little too strong for me but I bet you’ll like it.
