Routes des épices (French for "Spice Route") is a rye beer brewed with both black and green peppercorns. Initially, the beer reveals flavours of fresh grain and malt, which give it notes of chocolate, caramel, and fruit. The pepper flavour and aroma is fully revealed in the finish, which leaves a pleasant, spicy, tingling sensation on the tongue.

Bottle. Unique beer. The companies description is spot on other than the chocolate & caramel- did not notice those flavors. The peppery spice finish is awesome.

341ml bottle for £3 from Brewdog’s Online Shop:
Not a bad beer at all and certainly a lot better than I was expecting given the aroma of the beer, it definitely wasn’t a classic but I did enjoy the spiciness to it and its fairly unique flavours. While it’s not a beer I’m likely to pick up again it is one it was a decent beer and a very spicy one at that.

Bottle. Light hazy deep copper liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of raw sugar, toffee, black pepper, syrup and dried fruit. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of pumpernickel, dried fruit and some pepper. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty nice, pepper is an interesting addition.

Bottle in Brewdog Glasgow. Ruby with a thin off white head. The taste is fruity with lots of peppery spice that leaves a burn on the tongue. Different.

Pours a fairly clear copper with a small creamy off white head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, peppery, and kinda perfumy. Flavour is med-high spicy, peppercorns mixes with rye, light chocolate, caramel, mild bitterness and overall just a nice warmth!

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a clear medium brown with a small soapy brown head. Aroma of caramel, light chocolate, sweet malts and light perfumy esthers. Taste is caramel, sweet malts up front with some spiciness from the rye and then the peppercorns take over and provide a light tingling sensation on the tongue and then into the throat. Notes of nuts present too but the spiciness of the peppercorns is balanced delicately and adds nicely to the spicy rye. Great beer!

wow. Nez très poivré, goût très poivré. Etrange mélange, à réserver aux amateurs de poivre. Pas pour moi.
