3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at MBGSF10. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy light brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy peppers and spice aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex hot spice flavor with a medium to heavy hot finish of moderate to long duration. Another complex good brew for style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Michigan Brewer’s Guild Summer Festival 2010. Deep amber pour. The nose is softly fruity with a bit of light sweetness. A little bit toasty as well. Flavour has fruity chile pepper character. Peppery and quite spicy - although not as much as it could be. Lingering toastiness with a bit of fruit. Sort of a slightly peppery amber ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled from the tap at the 2010 GTMW. Poured a cloudy yellow brown with a light brown head that lasted throughout the beer. A hint of sweet grains on the nose but overwhelmed by the spicy peppers. Flavor was similarly overwhelming with plenty of spice from the peppers and just a slight grain undertone.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample @ MBGSF. Pours a hazy amber brown color with a small white head. The aroma had caramel malt sweetness, an earthy note and spicy peppers. The flavor had a strange maltiness, a big spicy pepper component, a hint of smoke and light fruits. Interesting and worth trying once.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at MBGSF. A pepper beer. A barleywine. Not exactly the combination one is looking for during a 97 degree outdoor festival. This is heavy and harsh, and all the intense bitterness and sweetness that comes with a big barleywine is exaggerated here by the chilis. On another day, I may have enjoyed this more.
