3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Definitely different than your average beer ;-) ... this concoction brings a bit of sweet with a peppery bite at the end that lingers in the back of your mouth and down into your belly. It's not over the top, but I prefer when spicy foods aren't just spicy but also has a great flavor from the source of the pepper/spice. For me, whatever pepper is used is lacking only slightly in flavor and mostly just bringing the heat.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is the third bomber Iíve had of this beer. It is exceptional.
Pours a cherry hued brown with little foam formation and no lace. The nose on this beer is insane, probably in my top five noses. cinnamon, cocoa, chili, sugar, coffee (just the slightest), grain, malt; these come together and honestly remind me of cinnamon toast crunch cereal - fucking awesome. Great cinnamon and cereal flavor with a good sharp burn at the rear of the palate. Really dig this beer. Iím worried about itís aging potential, so Iím drinking the shit out of it while I can. Medium bodied with prickly carb and an off dry finish. Really hope this becomes an annual release, they really hit it out of the park here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Jís in Thomasville. Clear deep brown pour with a bubbly tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of smoked ancho chiles, cinnamon spice, peppers with lighter notes of chocolate and roast. Flavor is pretty similar with a medium body and a decent amount of peppers shinning through and hiding everything else. Not bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours clear brown with no head to speak of. The aroma has tons of chocolate, tons of cinnamon, clove, more spices. The taste is a nice mix of chocolate, cinnamon, nd then a spicy, pepper finish.

Brown sugar toasted wood molasses. Spicy chipoltle. This could go on and on... My taste buds are on fire. A meal? Maybe some dessert? A fine ale for any occasion.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Murky brown with a two-finger-wide head that sticks around. Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, pepper, and spice. The flavor is much like the aroma with notes of gingerbread and other spices thrown in. Finish seems subdued but the spice builds up on you. Interesting.
