COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Dark amber pour with a brown head that totally went away. Aroma is malt and a hint of spice. Taste is malty, a little smoke and spice. OK flavor. The pepper is detectable as the beer warms. An ok beer.

A nice beer with an appealing look: dark brown, a bit of a light tan head. It has a medium finish with a nose of caramel and grapefruit. Lots of dark sugar, caramel, nuts and malt in the taste. Very good.

I was actually really excited about this one, but was sort of disappointed. I was really pumped for some chile flavor, but there wasn’t much of one. Pours brown with very little head. Touch of smoke, little chocolate, but fairly thin.

12 oz bottle from Capones. Pours dark brown with thick fluffy tan head with good lacing. Aroma is soy sauce, burnt brown sugar, butterscotch. Sweet brown sugar taste, soy sauce, a little smoke and a little heat.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Smells like beer with a bit of pepper in it. Tastes like beer with a bit of pepper in it. Not as overpowering as some of the other ancho chile in it. Might be a good into to spicy beer. Otherwise, not a whole lot going on in this one.

Dark amber pour, no head. Nose is grainy and not very agreeable. Taste is grainy and actually quite rancid. Could not finish it. Would rather drink a lager ! Please ! Quaff Score 2 / 10

12oz bottle thanks to Pawola22, like the description pours a clear deep amber with a large off-white head. Aroma of fruits and caramel. Taste similar to aroma sugary and sweet with toffee and a slight spice.

zgaier (1520) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Pours amber brown with a light tan head and unpleasant grainy aroma. Taste is of grains, malt, and caramel but overall doesn’t come together nicely while I dot get any chili. Not a good tasting craft beer

Draft at Hopleaf. Pours deep brown with a small off white head. Aroma is fairly simple, sweet lightly chocolatey malts, some spicy notes, caramel. Flavor is a bit more complex, though the beginning is pretty straightforward, sweet light roasty, a touch nutty, the chile’s finally come out in the end adding some interesting lingering bite and earthy character. Medium body and a soft with crisp carbonation. Ok, but I was hoping for more all around depth and complexity in the flavor.
