Listed as a "Dark Ale" at Bad Apple, served in a tapered 5 Rabbit pint glass. Review from written notes.
Reddish hazy copper, lasting head of tan foam on top. Foam sticks a bit, but not really leaving any lasting lace. Head retention is good, as it lasted for the duration of the glass. Malty, yeasty aroma, pleasant but slightly muted.
Caramel malt, some toastiness, fruity yeast and peppery spice. Ancho gives it a nice lingering spicy sweet heat in the aftertaste, subtle and nuanced. Successfully balanced without numbing heat, which can be rare in a Chile Beer. Definitely a little bit smoky, pretty malt forward. Medium carbonation, easy to drink. Paired well with food. An interesting first effort from this fledgling brewing company. Expectations are high since Mr. Mosher is involved, and this is a unique beer... a dark ale with ancho chiles added.
Serving type: on-tap

Appearance is ruby color with a thin head.
Smell is some sweet-spicy malts.
Taste is light roasted malts, caramel, mild hops and some chili powder at the end to make a nice spice.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin but smooth.
Overall, this is only the second 5 rabbit beer I've had and I was hesitant if trying this after the disappointing golden ale I had. I was more pleased with this brew, although I don't think this is great but it's decent. I would probably drink it again.

Picked up a bottle of this for $2.19 at Vintage Estate. Into a goblet
A - Deep porter brown almost black with a 1/2 inch of mocha head.
S - Smells ok roasted chilies is quite different smells like vegital roasted bell peppers. Quite strange with some sweet caramel malts and nutty malts.
T - Quite good it taste sort of like a brown ale with some chocolate and nutty notes but it comes off very vegital with the roasted chilies. Not that it's terrible its just strange.
M - Pretty drinkable I found it light to medium bodied. ABV is pretty balanced.
Overall nothing I would buy again. Quite a strange beer I was kind of turned off by the fact I bought a chili beer but roasted chilies is quite different. No heat.
