12 oz bottle purchased at 5 rabbit brewery. I've had this at the brewery but didn't review.
A: pours a deep cherry red brown, 2 finger off white brown foam head
S: malt, brown sugar, vanilla, slight chili
M: medium creamy body, slight resin that coats the tongue
T: light roasted malt, tobacco, caramel, toasted sugar like the label says, slight chile at the finish gives a little spicy heat
O: good brew worth trying, you drink a few of these in a row, not over powering chili flavor

L: just like diet coke 1/2 cream head leaves with no trace
S: rich chocolate with toasted sugar with a kick
T: like a dark chocolate chili pepper
F: good that leaves a spice on back of tongue
O: surprised so chocolatey the chili sticks to your tongue I will drink occasionally for a change up

Pours a clear, brown color. 1/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, roasted malt, hint of hop, hint of alcohol, and yeast. Does not fit the style of a Chile Beer. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, sweet malt, hint of hop, caramel malt, yeast, hint of alcohol, and a hint of biscuit. Overall, average appearance, aroma, and body, the chili is non-existent.
