Bottle thanks to Tim. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose and taste of cinnamon, light chili pepper, chocolate, rum raisin, roasted pumpkin seed, toasted almonds and cumin powder. A bit spicy in the finish. Nice complexity. Medium body. Solid beer for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from a BA trade. Dark brown pour with quite a bit of gushing to it, and a slightly dusky look. Nose is vaguely dusty and spicy, with rich chocolate malts forming the base. Loads of brown sugar in the taste, in some places undercutting the distinctiveness of the mole character. Spicy with a bit of dark fruit, in places the beer appeals but elsewhere tends to dissolve into a green chile mess with excess sugar.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of chocolate malt notes with some cinnamon and some pepper notes thought no heat is discernable. Taste is a mix between some cinnamon and chocolate malt with light nutty flavour and some pepper notes are also discernable though well balanced in the whole mix. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but I guess the pepper notes in beer is not something that I am really seeking out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty much what Mora2000 said... A big gusher of beer as soon as its opened. Thankfully I opened this up in the kitchen so it was a very small mess. Amber brown in color. Slight nutty aroma with a spicy peppery note as well. More nuttiness in the flavor. Some cocoa and chile heat in the aftertaste. Overall, not too bad. I wish a third of it wasnt wasted due to over carbing.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Big time gusher when opened, with brown foam going everywhere. Once calmed down, the beer pours a brown color with a brown head. Unfortunately, this beer smells very infected. I get a lot of dark fruit notes in the aroma. The flavor is also infected. I get some dark fruit, cherry, and a hint of chocolate. Medium mouthfeel and high carbonation. I shouldn’t be surprised since almost every bottle I have gotten from Freetail has been infected, but I was very disappointed since this beer sounded like it had the potential to be very good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Nose is rather light with some herbal tones and some slight chocolate/malty notes. Taste comes off with cocoa flavors followed by earthy herbal spiciness and a slight bit of hotness from the peppers. Unique and interesting beer that wants to be great but falls a bit short.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle gushed when opened. Beer pours amber in color with a tall off-white head. Strong chili pepper aroma, a fair amount of roast, some dark fruit, cinnamon, and chocolate. Slightly medicinal and herbal, mildly sweet. There’s definitely a medicinal herb quality to the flavor, but it’s okay otherwise. Some toast, chocolate, chili pepper, earth, roasted malt, and cinnamon.

On tap at RealTail 2012. Pours a clear amber with a medium creamy beige head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is caramel malt and brown sugar. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet caramel mlat and rich chocolate and nice smooth finish. Easy to drink hiding alcohol well, a good brew from Freetail.
