In bottle .. this beer was just OK. Aroma at first while a little cold was not good (almost like wet dog), though as it warmed, the spice notes started to come out. The beer was quite light bodied, and the chilies were a little too subtle.
I hoped to enjoy this beer, but it was OK at best.

The aroma is solid with malt hops and fruit. The appearance is amber. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall good.

Really malty with a bit of spice and taste of husk and bread. Lacks a bit of hops and other bitterness but makes up in the other end

Bottle: Poured a deep copper color ale with a nice thick off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light spicy rye notes with some caramelized malt notes is OKish. Taste is also dominated by spicy rye notes with some caramelized malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation doesn’t’ really stand out and chilies notes are way too subtle.
