Pores a light copper colour with a big white head that dies down to nothing. No lace. Nose of caramel malt, booze, bit of wood. Tastes a bit of alcohol burn, that lingers, which makes me think its the pepper. Caramel too.

Lightly hazed golden with a thin white head.

NOT A Fan. I love Dogfish Head but this beer is just not my style. It pours a nice amber with a small beige cap. The aroma is a pungent malt aroma. Flavor is very strange. Ancho chilies, cacao nibs... It fits the description... However, the taste is awful. Maybe just not for me? I would pass. It's an expensive gamble.

I tried a sample of this, and I was less than enamored of it. I can taste the cocoa and chiles, but I found they created a strange taste which I didn’t particularly care for.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong alcohol aroma and initial taste. This is not as apparent once the beer warms up a bit. Then moves to a dark chocolate and chili powder end am finish. Heat lingers in your throat. States honey, but I state more caramel
