Bottle. Rather clear amber color with white head. Aroma is black pepper, totally overdone. Taste is pepper, pale malts, earthy, straw. Pepper heat in the finish. Way too much pepper to be balanced.

12floz bottle, BOD: 01.17.2017, $1.50 unit cost, tulip glass for conveyance. This is a red ale with a hot pepper nose that continues to bring the heat through the palate. Other than the pepper, flavor consists of muted light grains over a lightly medium-bodied palate. I think this is okay.

DrNosha (2574) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - APR 28, 2017
12oz Flasche. Schöne Bernsteinfarbe, heller Schaum. Die gerösteten Chillis sind wunderbar in der Nase. Hat was von Chorizo. Dazu eine leichte Süsse. Malziger Antrunk. Auch hier die Chillis präsent. Sanfte Schärfe am Gaumen. Verbranter Karamel im Abgang. Das Thema Chilli ist hervorragend herausgearbeitet.

LinusStick (3497) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2017
Blah. Not very good. Aroma was deep sweet caramel with a hint of fresh pepper. Pour was a dark gold/light brown with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was pretty muddled. The sweet caramel malt dominated the sip with the decently spicy peppers coming out in the finish. The two seemed to battle one another instead of complimenting each other. As it warmed, the spiciness got warmer and lingered a lot longer. Mild carbonation. Not very good at first, but got more drinkable as it warmed.

wlajwl (7011) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Aroma is malts and strong green pepper/chilies. The flavor is Serrano chilies, malts, green peppers and spicy/chili finish.

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.
