Light red amber pour from 12oz bottle. White thin head. Prune and juicy flavor. Sweet also. Not bad

Brown pour, cream head. Sugar, malts, sweet. Easy palate, sweet, raw sugar, creamy, roasted malts.

nuplastikk (6414) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Amber-brown body, respectable beige head. Big fruity ancho pepper aroma, coupled with some mild caramel chocolate. An interesting enough beer, sort of a Schwarz with some mild pepper tones. Not really balanced though, kind of a mess. Worthy of a tick, but probably not one to seek out.

hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured an amber color with an off white head. Caramel, spices, and just a trace of peppers.

Coincidentally to another rater, I thought this was very much like a Vienna beer. The ancho is very subtle and simply tries to add to it instead of being the dominant flavor. Lots of Vienna malt. Moderate carbonation. Nothing spectacular for me in this one, like in 5 lizard...

There is a light caramel malt with light pepper taste but little to no heat.

sawbuck (755) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Aroma of chocolate, and caramel. Pours a deep brown with thin tan head. Surprising rich caramel malt taste, sweet. Caramel lingers, almost too long, finishes with right amount of bitterness (mild). Aftertaste lingers a bit. Surprised by the spice/herb/vegetable classification....tastes more like Vienna lager minus the crispy, dry finish.

alexsdad06 (10640) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber brown color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, mild caramel notes, light peppery spice, and a hint of earth. Not too bad, but wouldn’t seek out again.

BelgianBeerGal (4138) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Belmont bottle. Different overall. Kinda reminded me of a lighter porter with a hint of sweetness. I really didn’t get much from the chilis; maybe a little spice but no heat. Fine but a touch thin overall.

2.5
charule (2286) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Tasting at LUSH. Poured clear burnt amber with a rim of foam. Aroma of slight nut and soap. Quite smooth slightly spicy taste. Not my taste.
