COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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 (1180) - 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

Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours an amber-brown with almost no head. Faint lacing. Aroma has sweet caramel, peat and rum raisin. Taste is sweet caramel, molasses, simple sugar and some vegetalness. Medium bodied and very sweet. Down through the glass, there is some presence of the chiles; more from a late burn than actual flavor. Very sweet and sticky. Finishes sweet with a light burn, and sweet. Hmmm. So sweet as to be undrinkable, although the chiles do help dry it out.

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.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a beige head. Aroma is of smoked chili, caramel and toffee and some dark fruits notes with cocoa bean. The flavor follows the nose with subtle chili spice and the smoked chili flavor, some caramel, toffee, dark fruits and cocoa bean. The body is medium with a silky mouth feel. Overall an interesting brew.

12 oz bottle pours a clear brown/copper color with a decent beige head. Smells soapy. Aroma has chili, light caramel malts, with a touch of cocoa and perhaps some hops. Medium body with more spice than carbonation. Something interesting, local, and different, but I’m not sure if I’ll try it again.

Once the left over flavor of the coffee porter I had before this wore off, this beer became aggressively unpleasant. Tart, hot, and spicy. It tasted the way you feel on the can after a long night of funky beers....

Medium brown color with a beige head. Spicy chili aroma with some malty undertones. Dry, spicy finish. Not in love with this one.

Tasting at LUSH. Poured clear burnt amber with a rim of foam. Aroma of slight nut and soap. Quite smooth slightly spicy taste. Not my taste.

16 ounce pour at Bad Apple in Chicago. The spice and cinnamon in this one really stand out and make it a great tasting and uniquely flavored beer. While there is a good amount of sweetness to it, that aspect isn’t overwhelming and it’s especially drinkable. I highly recommend this to anyone who can find it around town.
