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.

In a word: complex. In greater detail: brown ale, but not brown ale; ancho-ie and roasted. Try it and judge for yourself.

Pours very dark brown.

This beer tastes like a Flemish ale. Which I am a-okay with! However, juxtaposed against the last beer I just tried of theirs that was supposed to be a witbier and tasted like a Berliner Weisse, I'd say something is amiss here. I get minimal chile tones that give a mild touch of smoked heat on the backend. Mild fruity aspects.

An interesting beer. But probably only because it happens, by chance, to taste like a Flemish ale.
