On tap. Pours a clear amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of bread and grains with a sweet backing. Flavor is is full of earthy grain with a hint of backing chocolate. The slightest hint of pepper in the finish. A bit thin.

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.

DocLock (10260) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle from Capones. Pours clear dark brown with ruby edges and a 2-finger tan head. Nose is brown sugary malt, mild hops, earthiness, nuts. Tastes malty, with hops, vinous fruit, earthy chile as it warms. Unique, and the peppers emerge more late, and work pretty well with this.

BVery (9978) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle from Binnys in Bloomingdale, IL. Dark cola pour with a small ring head. I really like the aroma on this - malty, hint of chocolate, and some chili spice. Taste is pleasant - mild roast, mild sweet, and again a hint of the roasted chili late but not spicy hot or anything. Decent brew.

phaleslu (9780) - 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 isnt spicy until late. Low-to-moderate carbonation. Went well enough with our Mexican food.

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 wouldnt seek out again.
