Draft. Medium dark copper color. The anchos can be picked out a bit in the aftertaste, really subtle balanced flavors, some cinnamon like notes come out.

Sort of reminds me of a porter, or like a watered down version of Huna? Nice really. Better than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At Rockwells. A robust brown ale that starts malty and sweet but in the end left a spicy tingling in the mount. Serving: Tap

On tap at Fountainhead. Pours dark murky brown with small head. Aromas of chocolate and caramel with some faint spices. Flavors of caramel, dark malts, chocolate, some earthy spices. Did not really pick up any of the heat or smoke I was hoping for. Bit disappointing.

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.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle version. Pours a amber brown with a tall beige head. Sweet malty aroma candy like with a touch of yeast and banana. Sweet caramel malts with a touch of roasted malt. Red fruit flavors underneath that black pepper ancho spice. No real heat to the spice but a bitter lasting black pepper finish. I enjoyed the tap version a little more which seemed to have more dark fruits in it, but this one is pretty tasty as well.

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
