this beer is like drinking a whole meal.
when you smell it-it smells smoky
then you taste it:
as soon as it gets in your mouth
you get smoky and salty like a slice of brisket
then you get a little spice like what you get from a pickled jalapeno
then you get the ale

overall this is a pretty good beer and might be perfect for Cinco de Mayo

Thanks to Chris (spycow) for this obscure Texas chile beer. You know what I like Chris. Served in a snifter.

A - White foam settles to a thick collar, wisps, and minimal lacework. Hazy dark orange body.

S - Smells like vegetal and lightly smoked chile peppers. There's some crystal malt and sugar cookie supporting things, along with some fruitiness; not sure if it's from the peppers, yeast or malt.

T - Tastes like it smells; it's an amber ale with jalapenos. A nice mix of vegetal and spicy flavors, with sufficient malt heft to get things from getting out of hand. Nice lingering burn in the finish.

M - Medium body, with lower carbonation, and a surprisingly smooth and creamy texture. The jalapenos impart a heat the gets seriously intense over time.

D - I thought this was great. It had the right level of spice, without going into gimmick territory; you can still taste the base beer and it integrates nicely with the peppery flavors. Would happily drink this again, although it'd be hard to have more than a bottle in an evening.

3.76/5  rDev +15.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color; the rather modest head dots the side of the pint glass with lace

Smell: Toasty and grainy, with a distinct roasted pepper character

Taste: Toasted malt, up front, with the roasted hot pepper flavor arriving and dominated from mid-palate through the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A rather fun beer; I wish the malt were a bit more interesting but, unlike most chile beers I have tried, this one gets the heat just right

Thanks, BeerHunter76, for the opportunity

On tap at the Big Texas Beer Fest.

The beer pours a hazy golden color with a large white head. The aroma is a mix of biscuit malt and fresh green jalapeno peppers. The flavor is more of the same and about what I expected. The biscuit malt is overpowered by the peppers, which are also accompanied by a little bit of grass. Unlike some other pepper beers, the chilis add more flavor than they do heat, which in this case is a good thing. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
