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.

Aurelius (4834) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2014
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.

mansquito (4649) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2015
State and Lake, Chicago tap: pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is light chocolate and pepper. Chili taste is not very light in there, and this is not spicy as some beers are, but the flavor is there. Mostly a malty beer that is moderately sweet. Not bad.

ajnepple (4381) - Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2015
12 oz single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Dark brown appearance with a small tan head that dissipated to nothing quickly. Aroma of chile peppers, brown sugar, caramel malt and toffee. Similar flavor, adding chocolate, cinnamon, mild earthy bitterness and a light spicy finish. Light to medium body, a bit dull and watery, with a light dry feel. Not awful, but kind of unpleasant and tough to drink. Pairing: Phish - Vultures -> Limb By Limb, from 09/21/1999, Pima County Fairgrounds, Tucson, AZ

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.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2012
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.

drewbeerme (3915) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2011
draft, pours hazed amber brown wh head. Nose of toasted malts, brown sugar, mild peppery notes. Really tame toasty nose. Flavors are toasted malts, mild pepper character, clean finish, that heat is there but it’s refreshing,

HonkeyBra (3899) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, cookie malts, mild peppers, some heat. Flavor is brown sugar, baked cookies, some dark bread. Mild heat from the peppers. Some chocolate, some dessert bread like tendencies. Almost like a proper Mexican Mole. Lovely, nice to drink, This is interesting although not a world beater. Although, I love the heat in the back of the throat. Medium carbonation, medium bodied, it’s interesting to drink. Good beer.

Blairgus (3725) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2012
17 nov 2012, bottle. Nut brown, clear. Nose is sickly sweet malt, maybe some grape jelly. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Sweet caramel malt. Really sickly caramel malt. Ugh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
