3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours reddish-amber color with a small foamy head that collects to a nice ring. Peppery aroma with some tropical fruit and a touch of smoke. Taste has this awesome toasted cereal sweetness (I’m guessing that’s the agave) that mixes great with the smokey peppers. Some cedar-like wood taste in the finish to go along with the moderate spicy pepper burn. Very good chili beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured hazy amber with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet & pepper aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth pepper flavor with a medium sweet & hot finish of moderate duration. My expectations where exceeded.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample on tap during Ohio Brew Week. Nice hazy dark amber color. Minimal off-white head, leaving good lace. Nice smokey toasted malt taste, good savory and light sweet, with some wood. Light crisp carbonation, good dry texture. Light tropical fruit sweetness, very savory and sort of smokey, some bacon flavor. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Jackie O’s as part of Ohio Brew Week. The beer pours a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt and chili pepper. Light body with a subtle chili character and notes of smoked malt and hops. The finish is chipotle peppers with a spiced aftertaste. Decent overall.
