Pours a reddish brown with a healthy slightly off-white head. Has that nice aroma of a good red ale (Belgian yeast?). That same flavor carries through to the taste, with a touch of sourness/bitterness hanging around for the aftertaste.

Light reddish brown pour with a thick light tan head. Malty nose with a slight hint of vegetables. Taste is ok - fairly muted considering there are Ancho chilies in this. Pretty nice spicy rye finish.

Poured from bottle, had a dragon on it, pretty sweet, pours a clear dark brownish red with a thick off white head and lacing in the glass, aroma is pretty nutty with a decent amount of spice and fruit mixed in as well, the flavor has a sweeter front end with a lot of spice in the finish, almost too much, a little potpourri like for my taking, meh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep brown with red highlights, nice frothy big head. Nose is doughy, dark fruit, Belgian yeast, a pepper spice note. Taste is very bready and malty but not sweet, some Belgian yeast, some dark fruit in the middle. The finish I get a touch of capsaicin spice, and a pepper vegetal note, very drying on the finish. High carbonation and effervescent, medium body fits the brew. I want to like this, as the first 2/3 are good, but the finish and especially the aftertaste I'm not a fan of. There's that drying capsaicin and vegetal note, not loving it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour reddish copper with a large tan head. The aroma has nuttiness, pepper meatiness (not spice), fruity Belgian yeast, toasty malt, light toffee and light berries. It has a medium / full body with a lot of carbonation. The flavor begins with peppery spice, pepper meat, fruity sweetness, yeast that seems very Ommegang and a bit of spicy hops - seems like many different spice traits here without having much heat. The finish is dry and crusty and spice is left lingering on the palate. Enjoyable.
