look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a very dark brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, a bit of peppers. Taste is spicy, malty, good pepper flavor without to much heat. Well done. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a different beer I wouldn't want a steady diet of, but worth a shot.

3.61/5  rDev +4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.
