Tap. Dark blood-brown. Scattered lacing. Malty nose. Notes of rye, caramel, very mild booze quality. Surprisingly refreshing.

Petkus331 (389) - Redford, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2014
An aroma of tobacco, dark fruit, some apple. Appears nearly opaque dark brown, white head, a lot of lace. Tastes of sweet tobacco, like a mild cigar, some dark chocolate, a hint of vanilla followed with a lingering charred malt bitterness. Palate is fizzy and mouthfilling. Overall, very good; reminds me of a stronger Dragonmead Crusader.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of TheAlum. Thanks Adam! Pours an orangish brown appearance with a thin tan head. Chocolate and veggie aroma. Some cinnamon / chili spiciness. Kind of thin body. Spicy, minty chocolate, celery flavor. Pretty sweet. Low bitterness. Gross.

[Bottle] Dark brown pour and with a small dark brown head. Sweet brown sugar and caramel nose. Taste is of sweet caramel and molasses. Mild grass and lingering residual sweetness in the finish. Not much heat from the ancho. OK overall. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

My first and definately my last sample of this brew. I guess Im not much of chile ancho fan. WIsh I could say better about it since it is my home state.

Darker beer, maybe a muddy brown with a little dirty tan head. Aroma is a light alcohol and maybe some malty. Flavor is more malty than burned, which I appreciate. But its still not quite my cup of hoppy IPA.

MrBunn (2789) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle. Somewhat thin looking deep brown body with reddish highlights and a big tan fluffy head. Aromas are nuts, toffee, roast and a little vegetable matter (ancho?). Flavor is sweet and dusty with a little bit of smokey heat in the finish. Not much, but it is there. The sweetness is distracting though, and the whole beer comes across as a little under attenuated in my book.
