4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I poured from a bomber into a pint glass. The appearance was very nice. It is a bronzed orange color; which was very unexpected and it had a nice 1/2-3/4" head with nice lacing. I loved the smell. It had a very spicy smell. I could smell the chilies. The chilies were also very apparent on first taste. At first I wasn't sure I liked the chili flavor but the subtle chocolate on the back end made it very nice. The spiciness also added to the mouthfeel of the beer. The tight carbonation with the spice of the chilies gave it a very zingy feel on the tongue which was surprising. Overall I think this beer was a big surprise from the pour to the finish, but it was a surprise I enjoyed.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Marked as Bottled in 2008. The aroma is stale, woody. Pours a cloudy copper/orange with small white head fully diminishing and no lacing. The taste is a light bitter. The body is medium the texture is creamy a little thin, the carbonation soft and the finish a short bitter. I really liked this beer before, so obviously it has been aged too long.

Bottle share at Evernote in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is honey, concentrated apple juice, mild hot cocoa. Taste is kinda herbal with some spicy / peppery bits but actually had some mild Belgian yeast spice qualities to me. More interesting in aroma than taste.

Deep , amber color ; big , white head which quickly disappeared. Strange aroma of cocoa , honey , spices and malt. it was a case where my nose and eyes didn't agree )) , because my nose expected something dark . Cocoa and honey in taste , with distinguished chillies notes . Dry finish , and some pinching in mouth (obviously chili pepper ). Unusual and interesting.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Itís an unclear, orange-colored beer topped by a minimal sized white head. Spices, a light funk, fruityness and some dried apricots in the aroma. Some alcohol notes in the far back. Itís full-bodied, lightly warming and with a nice carbonation level. Rather dry. Nice bitterness in the flavor, which else consits of the same fruityness and funk as in the aroma. And the spices, that lasts a good while. Not really fond of them, itís a quite strange combo. Still, itís a nice beer. 150621

Overall just kind of meh.

Tap - small foamy head, clear light gold color, not picking up much of an aroma, but definite chocolate malty flavor with a mild hit of chile spice in the back, pretty smooth finish considering, very good and different overall
