COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fire & Blood is a 6.8% ABV Red ale, brewed with pilsner, Cara-60, Midnight Wheat, flaked rye and spelt. Assertive hopping includes CTZ, Styrian Golding and German Tettnang hops. Spiced with de-seeded Ancho chilies. Fire & Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy, off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt & slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops & rye.

From bomber. Pours a reddish brown with a healthy slightly off-white head. Has that nice aroma of a good red ale (Belgian yeast?). That same flavor carries through to the taste, with a touch of sourness/bitterness hanging around for the aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Light reddish brown pour with a thick light tan head. Malty nose with a slight hint of vegetables. Taste is ok - fairly muted considering there are Ancho chilies in this. Pretty nice spicy rye finish.

Poured from bottle, had a dragon on it, pretty sweet, pours a clear dark brownish red with a thick off white head and lacing in the glass, aroma is pretty nutty with a decent amount of spice and fruit mixed in as well, the flavor has a sweeter front end with a lot of spice in the finish, almost too much, a little potpourri like for my taking, meh.
