Draft at Marias Party. Ive been waiting months to try this and was sadly underwhelmed. Pours a reddish brown, clear, with minimal head that dissipates. Nose is lightly sweet, faint cocoa and just a hint of smoke. On taste, flavors are quite subtle. Slight warming, light smokey chiles. It could really use more depth of flavor here as it just seems undwhelming. Okay, but far from great.

On tap at Fountainhead. Pours dark murky brown with small head. Aromas of chocolate and caramel with some faint spices. Flavors of caramel, dark malts, chocolate, some earthy spices. Did not really pick up any of the heat or smoke I was hoping for. Bit disappointing.

Poured from 12 oz into shaker. Color was brown amber with a tan head. Aroma was caramel with the hint of spice that it was brewed with. Taste was malty follow with the chili spice but not over powering. The flavors are very balanced. The adds a nice zing but overall the beer is neither exciting or thrilling

phaleslu (9708) - 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.

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

MrBunn (2764) - 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.

Better than its 44 point rating if you ask me. Dark brown color. Aroma is malty, similar to a porter. Taste is similar to a lighter porter, malty, chocolate, with a tiny bit of sourness, very little hops and a tinge of chile spiciness, but not very much. Its OK.

Aurelius (5155) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Well, anything featuring a buzzard on the label cant 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.
