Didnít know what to expect, but really wanted to try this dark ale from local 5 Rabbit Cerveceria. The toasted, malty caramel and sugar aroma with a very slight ancho chile comes through. Itís a dark reddish hue with a very small head that dissipates quick and leaves very little lacing. Taste is of very slight brown sugar and the ancho chile. Not spicy per se, but it teases your tongue.
Overall enjoyable and glad I tried it. Something local and out of the ordinary.

Dark amber pour with a medium light beige head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and dark fruits. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, peppers and figs. The finish is malty up front with a mild peppery aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Dark amber pour with a brown head that totally went away. Aroma is malt and a hint of spice. Taste is malty, a little smoke and spice. OK flavor. The pepper is detectable as the beer warms. An ok beer.

Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a lazy dark brown, little to no head. Aroma has some interesting earthy notes with some peppers and topsoil. Flavor is earthy as well with some bittersweet bakerís chocolate, some peppery accents, a touch of day old black coffee. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it. Not half bad.

Draft at Mariaís Party. Iíve been waiting months to try this and was sadly underwhelmed. Pours a reddish brown, clear, with minimal head that dissipates. Nose is lightly sweet, faint cocoa and just a hint of smoke. On taste, flavors are quite subtle. Slight warming, light smokey chiles. It could really use more depth of flavor here as it just seems undwhelming. Okay, but far from great.

On tap at Fountainhead. Pours dark murky brown with small head. Aromas of chocolate and caramel with some faint spices. Flavors of caramel, dark malts, chocolate, some earthy spices. Did not really pick up any of the heat or smoke I was hoping for. Bit disappointing.

Poured from 12 oz into shaker. Color was brown amber with a tan head. Aroma was caramel with the hint of spice that it was brewed with. Taste was malty follow with the chili spice but not over powering. The flavors are very balanced. The adds a nice zing but overall the beer is neither exciting or thrilling
