3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at The Alibi Room for their 300th Beer Menu, pours an opaque dark amber orange with a minimal beige head. Aroma of chili peppers and loads of spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, etc. Flavour is dominated by the chili peppers and spices, with more subdued cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper, cumin, curry powder and tobasco sauce. Quite intense, but not quite palate destroying. A pleasant amount of spice. Good for the novelty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is sweet pumpkiin, cinnamon. The appearance is a murky amber red, off white head. The flavor is sweet, pumpkin, cinnamon, and some hot pepper after a few seconds. Medium in body. The finish is sweet pumpkin, cinnamon, hot peppers. Pepper quickly takes over and dominates the finish. Very different and cool, but the pepper is a bit much.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft, Falling Rock, Denver. Hazy dark rusty burnt orange, thin head. Aroma of cumin, and greasy French fries. Taste is just odd. Big tones of cumin and some sort of spicy pepper. Kinda sweet but spicy. Again, a little much on the cumin. I can’t get any other flavors past this. Not pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown-amber body, slight ring of head. Lovely cayenne and cumin accented woody aroma. Unique for sure. Nice warming spicy cayenne pepper character dominates, but crystal malts contribute a somewhat mitigating underlying smoothness to it.
