From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on December 29, 2011. The pour is amber-copper with a short-lasting head that boils down to a ring and a slightly cloudy appearance. For the title, the aroma is actually rather straight forward with a nuice sweet maltiness and a clean hoppiness on the nose. The body is medium. Compared to the aroma the taste is entirely unique with a very spicy bite of pepper that pretty mucn drowns out the malts and hops. Unique for certain but not really something I would have regularly.

A - Slightly hazy copper with 1 finger of off-white head. Average retention with minimal lacing.

S - Soft pale malt with smoked pepper in the background.

T - Soft and sweet grain with some smokiness behind it. You can taste the chili in it for sure. Earthy and mellow. Finishes with a hint of heat on the back of the throat.

M - Medium body with adequate carbonation.

Interesting and pretty good. The heat from the chili is not hot but makes a presence. Nice earthy pale malt to back it up.
