Oaxacan-Style Dark Ale brewed with piloncillo sugar and chile ancho. 5 Vulture is a deep amber-colored ale with complex caramel aromas with toasted sugar notes and a long, elegant spicy finish. Roasted ancho chile is used to add depth and complexity, without adding heat or strong chile flavors.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Brown pour with a tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, cookie malts, mild peppers, some heat. Flavor is brown sugar, baked cookies, some dark bread. Mild heat from the peppers. Some chocolate, some dessert bread like tendencies. Almost like a proper Mexican Mole. Lovely, nice to drink, This is interesting although not a world beater. Although, I love the heat in the back of the throat. Medium carbonation, medium bodied, it’s interesting to drink. Good beer.

Pours a clear maroonish brown with a half a finger of head. Raisin notes and dark fruit to the aroma. Light taste that grows into a soft brown sugar sweetness and finally ends with a slowly evolving bitter aftertaste. A little watery but a nice, complex flavor.
