I have a few left. I guess the ancho chillies will taste better in time.

750 ml bottle, packaged on 12/23/13, best by 12/2015. Served in a tulip, the beer pours a hazy ruby red/brown color with a couple inch light tan head that stayed around for a long time. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is yeasty, the brew smells like cloves, dark fruit (raisins, cherries), dark bread and peppery spice (not chili pepper spice). Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there's also some nuttiness, apple, earthiness and very light chili pepper flavor noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's slick and creamy and it's also well carbonated. I think it's an OK overall brew, however if you're expecting any chili pepper spicy heat in this brew you're going to be disappointed. But if you look at this as being a red ale or a Belgian dark ale, it's not a bad brew at all. With that being said, it's not one of my favorite Ommegang selections but it was nice to try once. $7.99 a bottle.
