On tap at Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Nose shows mild hop presence, some burnt jalapeño and wet dog. Taste is nicely balanced, with more flavor than heat from the peppers but I nice slight kick at the end.

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

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2012 Draft. This is their Escape Artist with jalapeños added. It certainly smells spicy and peppery; what you would expect from a jalapeño beer. It’s not as spicy and peppery in the flavor; toned down from the aroma but there’s still some jalapeño heat. Caramel mingles in. Interesting beer.

Tap at APBC - pours a slight cloudy orange. Aroma is jalapeño and that’s it because it is so overpowering. Taste is the spicy burn of jalapeño and that has blown my tastebuds. I’m not getting anything else, so I’d deffinately save this one note beer to last.

On tap at brewpub. Amber with white head. Smell is light malty with jalapenos. Taste is warming hot jalapenos and caramel malty and floral hops. Crazy but balanced with the hot jalapenos.

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, sampler: aroma is roasted peppers, smells like tasty food. The flavor is more roasty smokiness than heat, but the heat is there a little bit as well. THE BEST pepper beer I have ever had. Tasty,tasty stuff.

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

Draft. Pours hazy golden color thin lacing. Aroma of floral, pine, and jalapenos. Medium sweet flavor from the malt, finishes spicy. The spice level is a bit delayed but grows with each sip. Despite the spice, after each sip I’m craving more. One of the most unique beers I’ve had, and I found it to be particularly well done.
