12oz bottle poured into flared shaker glass. A surprisingly big head for a pepper beer, foamy and strong. Fades to a surface covering lacing, again the pepper oils usually kills a head. Body is dark amber copper color. Aroma has a strong spicy and pepper flavor, which is magical to me. Flavor has a lasting, present spicy but not too much for my tastes. Strong green pepper flavor. This may be the most peppery Serrano beer I ever had, usually they are a low spicy pepper. The base amber actually gets in the way a bit, its dull but the malt is dusty and not clean. Fortunately the pepper shines enough.

Pours a light brown amber with an antique white head. Fresh cut chilis on the nose immediately. Puffy mouthfeel. Chili pepper flavor. Delivers as branded. Im a chili brew sucker, so Im all in. Nothing bad to say about it.

Part of a draft sampler--slight dark brown color with no head. Aroma of jalapeno and malt and earth. The taste is almost all pepper, lots of it. There was some caramel too. Light body and carbonation and a long pepper burn/taste on the finish. Iron Oak Post

Bottle. Serrano pepper and biscuit malt aroma. Hazy copper with moderate off-white head. Moderately sweet serranos, biscuit malt and moderately bitter herbal hay flavor. Good body. Mild burn in the finish. Very well made - good serrano pepper presence.

4oz taster @ VCBW 2016- Day 2. Light smoky, very veggie like serrano pepper. Light heat. Lvl-5-sweetness, toffee malt. Crisp brown sugar bite finish. Light tangy. Deeper/salty finish. Quite a bit of vegginess, not bad but a taster is enough.

Travlr (23362) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Sample at Savor 2016. Clear amber color, off white head. Light chili aroma. Taste is pepper flesh on a malty caramel background, subtle heat. OK.

Frank (4121) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2016
This is pretty weird. It is kinda a thick, syrupy amber w/ a strong green pepper vegetable element and a touch of heat. On top of that there is some cinnamon or something going on as well as a chocolate note. I guess these flavors have been made to work together in a beer but here it is just all kinds of sloppy and strange. I really cant get into this one.

On tap. Pours a hazy deep amber with a medium, frothy, short lived white head. Aroma of pepper overpowering a caramel malt note. Flavour matches aroma with a dry, grassy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A whole lot of pepper and not much else going on here.
