I was really surprised by this beer. The nose has elements of caramel and brown sugar in it with a nice backing of roasted jalapeno. Brown with a very small head. Sweet in the front, bitter in the middle, and spicy in the end. The heat is not overwhelming, but plays a subtle partner to the beer’s malt profile. Medium bodied with a spicy warming finish. Went great with carnitas and grilled corn.

Draft. Lightly hazed amber body with medium off-white head. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, grapefruit, juicy jalapeno. Taste is medium sweet, orange, light chile/chile heat. Light-medium body, light acidity. Really like how the heat in the nose is significantly moderated in the taste.

Tried with a sample at one of the breweries. Not bad. A little spicy, but very mild overall.

Pint at thirsty Monk. Pours a hazy orange. Pretty decent peppery aroma with metallic notes and caramel. The jalapeno flavor is pretty nice with a reasonable strength. A plasticity I associate with some chipotle products turns up, but there’s plenty of good pepper flavor to mask it. Finish has a little drowsiness to it. Pretty good.

Tap. Orange color. Whoa, jalepaño! Tastes of eating a fresh jalepaño. That is all. (3614)

Kinz (3189) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Beer #9 Asheville trip. Lightly hazy orange. Aroma is lightly of caramel malts. Flavor is light caramel malts, that are slowly destroyed by a lingering heat. Can’t say the jalapeno did much for flavor, really just making it hot. Not a big fan of chili pepper beers, and this one just confirmed my general bias against them.

Draught at Plant. Malty and a bit chewy. Caramel throughout. Then the presence of jalapeño pepper.

On tap at the Creekside Tavern, this pours a light amber into the glass, with a light soapy head that leaves spotty lacing. The nose is spot on for jalapeño peppers, caramel and some sweet vegetal notes. Flavors are of caramel, biscuit flour, pepper skins and a wallop of capsaicin to finish the pull. The mouthfeel, once past the heat, is medium and carbonated subtly. Very interesting brew here, and I actually quite like the weird combination. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
