COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

On tap. Pours a clear amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of bread and grains with a sweet backing. Flavor is is full of earthy grain with a hint of backing chocolate. The slightest hint of pepper in the finish. A bit thin.

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.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker. Initially smells doughy with a twist of lemon. It pours a dark, rich cola color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly - sparse lacing remains on the surface. itís heavily sweet, medium bitter, and lightly sour. Starts out with a thin, lime-like flavor, kinda like a corona or dos equis with a lime wedge, which quickly gives way to some of the smoother, sour malt. The "chili" flavoring comes in late and light; very subtle. Itís a unique concept, and I canít really say it was done right or wrong. Probably a good session beer - light enough to drink without feeling full, with nothing overwhelming that might turn-off an average beer drinker - and the spice adds a decent conversation starter. If given the options between mass produced domestic beers and this one, Iíd probably grab for this one, but it doesnít really strike my fancy; tough decision if stuck between a dos equis dark or this one.

No ancho flavor or sugar. Tastes like a skunked amber bock. I would not recommend this one to anyone. Color is great, no head, no lacing, flat and lacking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Darker beer, maybe a muddy brown with a little dirty tan head. Aroma is a light alcohol and maybe some malty. Flavor is more malty than burned, which I appreciate. But itís still not quite my cup of hoppy IPA.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of TheAlum. Thanks Adam! Pours an orangish brown appearance with a thin tan head. Chocolate and veggie aroma. Some cinnamon / chili spiciness. Kind of thin body. Spicy, minty chocolate, celery flavor. Pretty sweet. Low bitterness. Gross.

Bottle w/ twist off cap. Sterile vanilla aroma. Brown liquid. Quite strong on the taste buds, a new strong sensation. Hah, a pretty good craft beer from minhas. A little too strong for me but I bet youíll like it.

12 oz bottle from Capones. Pours dark brown with thick fluffy tan head with good lacing. Aroma is soy sauce, burnt brown sugar, butterscotch. Sweet brown sugar taste, soy sauce, a little smoke and a little heat.
