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.

Deep red hue with a light creamy head. Nice fruity character that finishes with a surprising amount of hoppy flavor. Doesn’t have the chili I was expecting but still an excellent beer.

JStax (3446) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2015
750 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a darker red with a creamy head of foam. The aroma has dark fruits, raisins, a bit of leather, and then there are some floral hoppy notes. Taste is sweet mostly, but dries out nicely. Medium carbonation and big body. Not bad.

Fritz123 (1274) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2015
Had a bottle last Sunday with GOT on HBO. Pours an amber with a solid two finger head in a snifter. Aroma is prunes, raisins, some Belgian yeasts, and some dankness. The taste was mediocre at best with some light prunes, raisins, an acidic aftertaste, and Belgian yeasts. I think my bottle may have been somewhat infected. Had to end up dumping the second half of the bottle. Very rare for me. Heavy carb, light body.

Bottle from craft. Nice notes of raisin, spice, rye, caramel and hop. Nice sweet and spiced flavor...a bit warming.

maxwelldeux (4097) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 13, 2015
Draught. Pours a somewhat hazy dark brown color with a moderately large tan head on there. Nose is toasty with a bit of rye and Belgian yeast to it. Taste is toasty and a little crisp. Not bad, and like the rye notes.

Bottle together with the season premiere. Murky deep red liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of dried fruit, raw sugar, light chocolate, biscuit, floral hops and earth. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with notes of dried fruit, light chili, raw sugar, toffee and earth. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty decent.

drpimento (2402) - 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.

Poured an amber red color with aromas of light caramel, peppers, a touch of hops and malt. Flavors match the aromas with some light vegetables and earthiness.
