This beer is my 2nd chile beer. My first was DFH Theobroma, which, while a great beer, is light on the chilies. Poured from 22oz bomber.

A- Nice caramel color with a decent head. Pours well.

S- Smoke, black pepper. Mild malts.

T- Tastes amazing. Smoky at first, good hop crispness. After the swallow, about 3 seconds later, the chilies make themselves known. T-A-S-T-Y! Wow! I love this beer. Amazing take on the smoked lager/chilie beer. This beer is perfectly spiced. Not too strong, but enough to notice. Very good. Going to make this a staple brew in my collection.

M- Great. Crisp, smoky, hot and spicy.

D- Moderate to moderately high. Couldn't drink more than 2 or 3, but goes down so easily paired with some spicy food. This beer is amazing with some Mexican or spicy Italian cuisine. A must-try.
I put this beer as a spin-off of the great flavors found in Schlenkerla's Marzen... something about smoky beers just does it for me.
