Well, anything featuring a buzzard on the label can’t get high marks for appearance. Dark brown with fine carbonation. Malty, doughy aroma with some acidity and roast. Tangy, brown sugar and molasses tones, slow burn spicy. Slightly heavy body. Standard 12 oz longneck. New Leaf Market.

State and Lake, Chicago tap: pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is light chocolate and pepper. Chili taste is not very light in there, and this is not spicy as some beers are, but the flavor is there. Mostly a malty beer that is moderately sweet. Not bad.

Interesting beverage. Medium body. Spices are even and don’t run you over. Earthy, grassy, and almost gritty.Tap

12 ounce bottle. Not highly carbonated. Taste some pepper and reminds me of a mild stout. Brown in color with a beige head this is a pretty smooth ale. Overall this is above average in style and pretty drinkable.

I was actually really excited about this one, but was sort of disappointed. I was really pumped for some chile flavor, but there wasn’t much of one. Pours brown with very little head. Touch of smoke, little chocolate, but fairly thin.

At Rockwells. A robust brown ale that starts malty and sweet but in the end left a spicy tingling in the mount. Serving: Tap

Cortesy of hombrepalo. Sugary spice aroma very good. Amber body with beige head. Roated spice with some sugar sweetener. Thought this would be more harsh like a Vultue attacking my taste buds but it wasn’t rather smooth on thee palate with the spicey chilli aftertaste. Good brew thx Horacio.

Bottle. Poured clear brown color with an average to large light brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted caramel malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Heavy sweet brew.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2012 Smells like beer with a bit of pepper in it. Tastes like beer with a bit of pepper in it. Not as overpowering as some of the other ancho chile in it. Might be a good into to spicy beer. Otherwise, not a whole lot going on in this one.
