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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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 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....

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!
