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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well, anything featuring a buzzard on the label can’t 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.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear, dark, wet copper with a tall, thick, tan head.
Scent is spiced caramel....sugar...
Taste is caramel....chilis are noticeable but not overblown.....
Increasing peppery tones as it warms and finishes.
An interesting little oddity....well worth a try.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

The aroma is sweet and spicy with hints of fruit and chocolate. The appearance is brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a killer beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is pale lager sweetness with a hint of spice. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a bit more spice and mixed with a slight tartness in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Pawola22 - thanks, Brian! Thinnish copper pour with a fast-evaporating head, leaving just a partial film of bubbles. Bitter chiles and burnt sugar in the nose and an impression of general harshness. Nice little bite on the tongue, and the chiles do tend to meld fairly well with the sweet caramel. It’s not poorly done, just overall not my kinda beer I think.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draft. Poured a clear light brown color. The head was thin and off white. Cloying diacetyl dominated the aroma. There were also whiffs of nondescript spices. Medium bodied and moderately sweet. Buttery caramel and spice flavors with a hint of chocolate. No chile pepper to speak of in my opinion.
