12oz bottle from Pawola22 - thanks, Brian! Thinnish copper pour with a fast-evaporating head, leaving just a partial film of bubbles. Bitter chiles and burnt sugar in the nose and an impression of general harshness. Nice little bite on the tongue, and the chiles do tend to meld fairly well with the sweet caramel. It’s not poorly done, just overall not my kinda beer I think.

draft, pours hazed amber brown wh head. Nose of toasted malts, brown sugar, mild peppery notes. Really tame toasty nose. Flavors are toasted malts, mild pepper character, clean finish, that heat is there but it’s refreshing,

Pours cola brown with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, spice, and toasted malt. Toasted malt and caramel flavor with hint of pepper on the back end. Decent beer.

Aroma was pretty good for the style - caramel malt, fruit, anise, hint of chili. Flavor falls down a lot along with body. In tasting I get marshmallow, burnt toast, light syrup, a little fruit, some bitter. Thin body. Wouldn’t drink again.

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.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Draft. Poured a clear light brown color. The head was thin and off white. Cloying diacetyl dominated the aroma. There were also whiffs of nondescript spices. Medium bodied and moderately sweet. Buttery caramel and spice flavors with a hint of chocolate. No chile pepper to speak of in my opinion.

Pours a dark brown with a thin white top. Aroma is sweet roasted malts with a small red chili. Taste is a nice sweet caramel start but ends with a warming chili finish. As I go further, my mouth gets hotter like I’m eating a good plate of nachoes.

6 pack from Wallaby’s. I really enjoyed talking to these guys at GABF and I loved their beer, so I was stoked to see 5 Rabbit on the shelves out here. This beer is a very dark red with a small head. Chili is there, but I could use more. It’s a sweet smelling beer with notes of cola, toffee and a bit of chocolate. The palate is medium with pretty active carbonation. Anchor chili comes out more in the flavor, which provides nice balance. I could still use more pepper and definitely a little more heat. Still, it’s a nice beer. A malty, sweeter, well balanced ale.

Draft... Dirty medium mahogany, light tan head, too light on the fringes of the body... The nose is restrained, just not much going on, light caramel, just sweet no pepper at all... Tastes so boring and a bad mouthfeel makes it hard to drink, light toasted sugar, more caramel, feel is rough and harsh, was so drained on sand pepper. I’m guessing this is the sandpaper... Another bad 5 rabbit but more drinkable then their other flagships
