Called "Poblamo Chili Amber". It smelled like a super hot chili pepper, and it tasted like a super hot chili pepper, but it wasn’t a super hot chili pepper, it was a remarkably refreshing and good tasting beer!

Draught at Saraveza. (This should probably be listed as Poblano) Peppery, vegetal, celery, and spice nose. Thin copper/brown color. Medium-strength pepper initial / good caramel emerges along with a coffee note / thins out in final and the pepper hits again. Medium body. Pretty good. Not overdone with the heat

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from tap to glass. Honey golden hue with off white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is huge peppers, and slight sugar. Mouthfeel is slightly watery with light body and low carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with a spicy hot following and smoky finish. Overall this is just ok. I love a good pepper beer but this could really benefit from more carbonation.

Draft at Cornbread Cafe, Eugene. Yeah, I’m a sucker for spiced beers, spiced saisons even more so. Upright’s Fatali Four is the standard, but this is doing something quite a bit different. Less barnyard funk, less estery nose, a broader, richer sense of spice. Are the peppers roasted? Dark, richer (for a saison) and maybe a bit hoppier. Yum!
