Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is an amber-caramel coloring, with a halo of white head. Nose of caramel and crystal sweetness, with only hints of pepper heat, if you dig. Flavors are pepper spice forward, with a subtle caramel backbone, and the jalapeno flavors throughout the end. Light and smooth, with a building heat into the pepper spiced aftertaste. Smooth, clean finish. Solid take on a tough style to keep balanced.

Had this one on a past ticking trip to Asheville! Served from tap into a Thirsty Monk shaker. Poured yellow-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, jalepano, smoke, earth, and earth hop. The flavor was of sweet malt, earth, jalepano, subtle smoke, earth hop, and a spicy followthrough. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. I was surprised to see this one while at Thirsty Monk as I had never heard of it, but I have always been intrigued by Chile beers. This one had all the usual characteristics of the style including the heat on the followthrough. However, I really wish there would have been a little more sweetness going on rather than just earthy spice. It would have definitely made this one much more enjoyable. Quite glad I got to try this one and would suggest it for anyone who is a fan of the style.
