3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 Iím not sure if Iíll 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.

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.

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 isnít overwhelming and itís especially drinkable. I highly recommend this to anyone who can find it around town.

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.

aroma: complex caramels. appearance: deep amber. taste: toasted sugar notes, depth and complexity, but not heat or strong chile flavors, from the roasted ancho chile, and a long, elegant spicy finish. #10!

From a bottle. Pours light brown. Flavor is malty and almost Belgian in depth and balance but with a definite ancho spice kick that makes you take notice. Itís like a Belgian Vienna packing heat.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Caramel and brown sugar malt aromas.
Appearance: Dark amber with rich, tan head.
Taste: Medium sweetness with a hint of saltiness and edges of bitterness.
Palate: Medium body, thick texture, average carbonation, slightly salty, slightly smoky finish.
Overall: Not bad...Iím not blown away, but Iím also not disappointed. Thereís just nothing outstanding about this, and it was a bit pricey for a 6-pack.
