5 Rabbit is turning into one of our favorite breweries. If you remember, we had their 5 Lizard back in July. We liked that just fine. This week, we give their 5 Vulture a try. It says it’s brewed with ancho chili, so I was expecting it to be a prominent part of the flavor. But it wasn’t. It was there, adding some texture to the beer itself, and it was there on the finish. But it didn’t dominate, and I was good with that. I really liked this beer. It’s fairly unique. Dark, smooth, with some sweet, but not too sweet, and a peppery finish.
Ryan broke the mold by giving it a 7.7, so Shane decided to go with a 7.2. I gave it a straight up 8.0. We all liked it. I say give this one a shot. It’s different. It’s good. Plus, when you pair it up with Shane’s suggestion of a sausage sandwich with marinara and peppers, I think you’ll be diggin’ it.
