2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks kerenmk. Clear amber with a small head. Smell of caramel, black pepper and spices.
Taste - moderate malty sweetness with pepper and rye spicy notes. Interesting but too much black pepper to make it drinkable.

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark amber with some sediment and an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are pepper, spices, and malt - with a peppery finish.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 ml Bottle. clear ruby/amber color, average head. smells rye and peppercorn! Spices is the name of the game! tasty but not as much as I would expect from the smell. the after taste tickles your throat a little(very peppery) very complete, pepper and rye dominate but you can also detect amber malts and spicey hops. kinda cool but a bit shy

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Hazy deep amber. Spicy aroma, very peppery, with some malt, caramel and rye spiciness. Sweet flavor with malt, caramel, some rye and lots of peppercorn spiciness. Medium-bodied. Overly spicy, hard to drink.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wowie! I was not expecting this to be so spicey! It’s got some kick to it to be sure. A beautiful clear and crisp ruddy umber with a great ivory laceroo. Spice is the name of the game, black pepper and rye mostly with hints of cardamom, ginger and cinnamon. A bit of caramel sweetness comes through before a big and lingering barrage of spice pummels. The mouthfeel is very nice and the somewhat slick but still zippy carbonation keeps the zest clinging long after a gulp has been had. A fine treat but to be reserved for special occasions. Best Spiced Beer yet for me.

Pours brown. Aroma of rye and malt, maybe some pepper. Tastes strongly ofppepper with some rye in there. Strong pepper aftertaste: too strong for mylliking.

Bottle. There’s so much pepper in this! It’s nice but it can be a bit overwhelming at times. Goes good with a block of Mersey Valley Sharp & Crumbly cheese though!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Couleur orangée tirant sur le brun, faible carvo, tres fin collet.
Aromes complexes et mélange déroutant mais oh combien envoûtant. On y retrouve le poivre bien sur, mais aussi le caramel, le pain.
Le poivre titille les papilles dès son entree en bouche et reste bien présent longtemps apres, le seul bemol est que cela ecrase un peu les autres falveurs. Le corps est plutot rond.
Pour les amateurs de poivres !

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice frothy off-white head with amazing retention and lacing. Aroma of fresh rye bread, pepper, raisins, and caramel, with a flavor to match.
