UPDATED: MAR 4, 2013 Clear, dark red-amber with good, foamy, beige head, modest legs / Mild, toasty nose of dark caramel, chile, and tobacco / Light to medium body, zesty carbonation, some sweetness and stickiness, modest hopping, with lots of spicy heat on the finish / Mild flavors of dark caramel (cola), molasses, and chocolate, with vague vegetal notes underneath / Lacks sufficient ale character, making this seem more of a Marzen with cayenne pepper added.

From a bottle. Pours light brown. Flavor is malty and almost Belgian in depth and balance but with a definite ancho spice kick that makes you take notice. It’s like a Belgian Vienna packing heat.

tmoreau (4642) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 12 oz. bottle poured to a SA lager/pint glass showing a nearly opague brown color with amber highlighting, a frothy, brownish tan head, and wavy cling to the lacing. The aroma was toasted, almost roasted, creamy malt, caramel, treacle, and brown sugar sweetness. The flavor intro was some initial sharpness to alert the palate, lingering pepper/chiles, then moderate, earthy bitterness, and even keeled malt. Sweetness was less evident in the flavor. The body was medium+, with a light syrupy texture, decent carbonation, and a finish that was peppery, extended bitterness, with a touch of dryness. Appreciated the balanced flavor notes, and the non-abrasive expression of the chiles.

Headbanger (4021) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2013
12oz bottle 2/19/13 (Binny’s Naperville Mix Six)-40° in Lager Glass-Pours a dark amber with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt, toffee, and chile. Taste of the same with more chile and earthy. This medium bodied brew is not bad but nothing I would go searching for.

queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle. Brown sugar, caramel, and very light chili aroma. Deep chestnut with a large beige head. Caramel malt, herbal bitter chili flavor. No heat to speak of, just vegetal bitter pepper flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation.

pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Aroma: Caramel and brown sugar malt aromas. Appearance: Dark amber with rich, tan head. Taste: Medium sweetness with a hint of saltiness and edges of bitterness. Palate: Medium body, thick texture, average carbonation, slightly salty, slightly smoky finish. Overall: Not bad...I’m not blown away, but I’m also not disappointed. There’s just nothing outstanding about this, and it was a bit pricey for a 6-pack.

phaleslu (10671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2013
Draft served in a pint glass at Bakersfield. Pours a deep, mostly clear amber color with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted chocolate and brown sugar, dried leaves, and very mild ancho chiles. The flavor is the same. Light-bodied, with a malty, earthy mouthfeel that isn’t spicy until late. Low-to-moderate carbonation. Went well enough with our Mexican food.
