COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head.

drpimento (2421) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2015
Appearance does have a persistent creamy head, lace, and a clear orange amber color. Aroma is malt, spice, yeast , wine, caramel. Flavor’s like nose, fairly dry, carbonic tang up front, lots of spice in back. Great body; i think the warmth is coming from the chilies. Very good finish too.

Draft pour at Special Brews. Pours a dark amber color with a lasting head. For some reason, I always put this series of beers aside, and never tried one. Now I’m starting to wonder why. Solid beer so far. Sweet floral hops aroma. Flavor has some floral hops, a little spice to it, and some rye flavor in the finish. Unique for sure. Very tasty brew. Enjoyed this.
