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.

Pours cola colored with the translucence to match, topped by a head of coarse khaki bubbles. Aroma is sweet but controlled, smelling of caramel, honey, nuts, and milk chocolate. Flavor is marvelously rich and balanced, featuring many of the flavors noted in the nose. Toffee, nuts, caramel, and brown sugar coat the palate in a rich wash of flavor. There's also a pleasant kiss of milk chocolate as well. Whatever bitterness exists is only for balance, which it accomplishes sufficiently. One of its minor defects, the sweetness can become slightly cloying if imbibed too vigorously. The label touts ancho chiles, and while there are suggestions of that chile spice in the finish, it's hardly a featured flavor. The warming effect of the alcohol lingers palpably beneath the surface. Carbonation is perky and vigorous, offsetting some of the sweetness, while the body is medium and slightly sticky. Both complement the beer's flavor profile well.

Overall, this is a unique and complex brew that is both flavorful and easy to drink. As it is widely available locally, it's a beer I'm more than comfortable falling back on when more stellar offerings aren't available.
