From 09/15/12 notes. Had on tap at Rattle n Hum in NYC. Unfortunately the word "Habanero" was left off the name on the menu so I was not expected a chili beer until I tasted it. Served in a pint glass.
a - Pours a somewhat clear amber color with one inch off white head and moderate carbonation evident.
s - Smells of honey, fruity malts, bready malts, dough, grains. As it warms up a tiny bit of pepper but not too much at all.
t - Tastes of very smooth honey, sugar, sweet fruity malts, bready malts, grains, and dough up front. As the description says, you really don't get any pepper or spice at first; it doesn't start coming through until a few sips in. By the end of the glass, the spice is very strong and burns a little bit.
m - Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. First half of the glass was as smooth as honey (4.5), while the second half burns a bit by the end due to the Habanero heat (3.5).
o - Overall this is a tale of two beers, which it sounds like is exactly what they were going for. Tons of honey and fruit up front, and insanely smooth, but then the pepper and spice kicks in later on as you work your way through it. An interesting beer and well done for a chili beer, although I wish RnH had added the word Habanero to their menu so I knew what to expect.
Serving type: on-tap
