Poured from "bomber" bottle into a wine goblet.
Deep amber/apricot in color, with a moderate head of off-white foam.
Aroma-Sweet malt, faint spiciness
Taste-Sweet toasted malt, spices, subtle smoked peppers. A bit of a dry finish. Sweet malt kept from becoming cloying by just right amount of gently warming spices and smoked peppers. This brew cries out for spicy Mexican or Szechuan cuisine. Overall, great balance, flavor and a match for any spicy dish.

Had on tap.

Appearance was a slightly hazy light reddish brown.

Nose of smoke and pepper overpowered everything else. There was a little malt in there but it was behind the roasted peppers.

Smoke up front in the taste along with a little bit of jalapeno flavor. The heat comes in about midway through the taste and lingers through the finish. It is not an extreme heat but the more you drink the stronger it becomes. A nice malty backbone supports the smoke and peppers.

Overall, a very unique beer but it succeeds at what it is attempting. A tasty chili beer that remains balanced.

Pretty meager 8oz pour on-tap at Winghearts. Amber/copper color with light haze. Rich head with impressive lacing. 4.0

Toasted malts, whiff of smoke, and a sweet grainy spice in the aroma. Not much else. 3.0

Crisp hoppiness in the taste with a dusty chile bite in the background. Very familiar with the Pacman Yeast flavor profile, and that musty fruit ester is here, too. Less spicy that I remember. Less smoky, too. Still a fine brew. 4.0

Medium-to-light body with a wetness that swigs and swishes around nicely. Not coating or dissipating. The carbonation is very mild. 4.0

One o'those 'thumbs-up' brews from Rogue. Give 'er a try. 4.0
