COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

12oz bottle 2/19/13 (Binny’s Naperville Mix Six)-40° in Lager Glass-Pours a dark amber with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, toffee, and chile. Taste of the same with more chile and earthy. This medium bodied brew is not bad but nothing I would go searching for.

Bottle from ck1, thanks bro! Pours an amber-brown with almost no head. Faint lacing. Aroma has sweet caramel, peat and rum raisin. Taste is sweet caramel, molasses, simple sugar and some vegetalness. Medium bodied and very sweet. Down through the glass, there is some presence of the chiles; more from a late burn than actual flavor. Very sweet and sticky. Finishes sweet with a light burn, and sweet. Hmmm. So sweet as to be undrinkable, although the chiles do help dry it out.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, mild caramel notes, light peppery spice, and a hint of earth. Not too bad, but wouldn’t seek out again.

Light red amber pour from 12oz bottle. White thin head. Prune and juicy flavor. Sweet also. Not bad

Bottle. Somewhat thin looking deep brown body with reddish highlights and a big tan fluffy head. Aromas are nuts, toffee, roast and a little vegetable matter (ancho?). Flavor is sweet and dusty with a little bit of smokey heat in the finish. Not much, but it is there. The sweetness is distracting though, and the whole beer comes across as a little under attenuated in my book.

I was actually really excited about this one, but was sort of disappointed. I was really pumped for some chile flavor, but there wasn’t much of one. Pours brown with very little head. Touch of smoke, little chocolate, but fairly thin.

At Rockwells. A robust brown ale that starts malty and sweet but in the end left a spicy tingling in the mount. Serving: Tap

Cortesy of hombrepalo. Sugary spice aroma very good. Amber body with beige head. Roated spice with some sugar sweetener. Thought this would be more harsh like a Vultue attacking my taste buds but it wasn’t rather smooth on thee palate with the spicey chilli aftertaste. Good brew thx Horacio.

Bottle. Poured clear brown color with an average to large light brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted caramel malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Heavy sweet brew.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Smells like beer with a bit of pepper in it. Tastes like beer with a bit of pepper in it. Not as overpowering as some of the other ancho chile in it. Might be a good into to spicy beer. Otherwise, not a whole lot going on in this one.
