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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a ridiculously huge head out of the bottle. Basically a whole pint glass!! Now five minutes later and Iíve got half a glass of beer, a quarter glass of foam and a whole bunch of lace. Reddish copper color. Aroma of wet straw. Rather unique flavor with the Ancho not being really obvious, but changing the typical rye character. Only so slight warming after drinking. Sorry to say, yet another GoTh disappointment after last yearís Take Back the Black Stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex sweet dark fruit & rye and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy yeast dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Interesting good brew.
