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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.
