COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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

zgaier (1414) - 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

Pours dark ruby with a finger of off white head. Smell is fruity and a bit spicy. Taste is mellow, sweet, and spicy all at the same time. Light bodied but full in flavor. Crazy beer. Love it.

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.

Lowe1983 (1351) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Pours a mahogany color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty strong of the caramel malts with only a hint of the chile. Flavor is also overly sweet from the caramel malts. A slight hint of the chile comes out on the finish with only a slight spicy flavor on the finish.

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.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2013
pours hazy amber. fruity and sweet caramel and bread aromas with some toast. Flavor is odd fruity qualities mixed with some light spice and sweet caramels. Body is medium thin and lightly carbed. Kinda underwhelming and you can’t really tell where they are wanting to go with this one.
