3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Finally I’ve found a bottle out here in the burbs. Got the last two in the "build-a-6" shelf at Lemon Tree. So when I mark it as "available" there, I mean it may show up there again. Time to pop this bad niño! Pour is a deep, but clear brown beer color. Few bubbles in the beer itself, but a good spongy head. Roasty, brown bread malt smell, plenty of the piloncillo in evidence. Taste has perhaps a little bit of cocoa to it, doughy bread taste, around doppelbock or porter territory, but not overly alcoholic. I cannot find chile heat here, except for a very slight burn at the sides of my tongue. Probably replaces some of the hops in keeping the malt balanced. Taste is indeed less sugary than the nose was. Despite the slightly elevated abv, the alcohol stays light, and the mouthfeel is similarly a bit light too. Not a "chile beer" by any means.

Draft. Probably my least favorite of the 5 rabbit beers. Just kinda boring. Its like a dark version of your standard pale lager. The chilis dont really come out to play at all. Meh.

[Bottle] Dark brown pour and with a small dark brown head. Sweet brown sugar and caramel nose. Taste is of sweet caramel and molasses. Mild grass and lingering residual sweetness in the finish. Not much heat from the ancho. OK overall. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

12oz bottle from the cousin in the barrio. Pours brown in this dark room with light head that disappears completely. Nose is cola and spicy with pepper. Sip accentuates the pepper presence but no discernible heat. Sweet for the style. Sugar, caramel and cinnamon for sure. A nice surprise.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Somewhat thin looking deep brown body with reddish highlights and a big tan fluffy head. Aromas are nuts, toffee, roast and a little vegetable matter (ancho?). Flavor is sweet and dusty with a little bit of smokey heat in the finish. Not much, but it is there. The sweetness is distracting though, and the whole beer comes across as a little under attenuated in my book.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on draft in May 2011 at the Glunz Beer Expo. Pours hazy light amber with a thick white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is malty caramel with some dark chocolate, bitter coffee, and overall general roasted notes. The flavor is very roasted with dark chocolate, coffee, a hint of caramel, and spicy peppers on the back of the throat. The body is medium with lively carbonation and a long roasted and spicy chili pepper finish.

Cortesy of hombrepalo. Sugary spice aroma very good. Amber body with beige head. Roated spice with some sugar sweetener. Thought this would be more harsh like a Vultue attacking my taste buds but it wasn’t rather smooth on thee palate with the spicey chilli aftertaste. Good brew thx Horacio.
