On draft at Bar on Buena. Dark caramel color with tan, foamy head. Lightly sweet aroma. Smooth complexity with tastes lightly of chocolate. Similar characteristcs of a brown ale, with a little spice. Light to medium body texture on the palate. Solid brew from a new (new to me) Chicago brewery.

A nice beer with an appealing look: dark brown, a bit of a light tan head. It has a medium finish with a nose of caramel and grapefruit. Lots of dark sugar, caramel, nuts and malt in the taste. Very good.

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.

6 pack from Wallaby’s. I really enjoyed talking to these guys at GABF and I loved their beer, so I was stoked to see 5 Rabbit on the shelves out here. This beer is a very dark red with a small head. Chili is there, but I could use more. It’s a sweet smelling beer with notes of cola, toffee and a bit of chocolate. The palate is medium with pretty active carbonation. Anchor chili comes out more in the flavor, which provides nice balance. I could still use more pepper and definitely a little more heat. Still, it’s a nice beer. A malty, sweeter, well balanced ale.

tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 12 oz. bottle poured to a SA lager/pint glass showing a nearly opague brown color with amber highlighting, a frothy, brownish tan head, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was toasted, almost roasted, creamy malt, caramel, treacle, and brown sugar sweetness. The flavor intro was some initial sharpness to alert the palate, lingering pepper/chiles, then moderate, earthy bitterness, and even keeled malt. Sweetness was less evident in the flavor. The body was medium+, with a light syrupy texture, decent carbonation, and a finish that was peppery, extended bitterness, with a touch of dryness. Appreciated the balanced flavor notes, and the non-abrasive expression of the chiles.

I think this beer deserve a better rating. Light malt aroma, caramel with spice. Good flavor...sweet roasted malts and of course the ancho chilies come through on the finish.

The aroma is sweet and spicy with hints of fruit and chocolate. The appearance is brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a killer beer.
