1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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

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.

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.

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 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.

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....
