Bottle at the BNA 8 party at World Cafe Live Philadelphia
Huge over carbonation issues from the bottle pours mostly foam. Strawberry tartness light caramel malt and some jalapeno heat. Muddles flavors almost work together but Iím not sure if this is the way it was ment to taste or not.

Not sure why this isnít classed as a fruit or an herb/spice/vegetable, but to begin this has a vegetal aroma. It pours an opaque ruddy brown, with no head. The flavor is more jalapeno than strawberry, with a touch of heat in the finish. Not really able to detect much else besides the jalapeno flavor, very little roasted notes, and almost no sweetness. Itís an interesting one, not sure if Iíll be going out of my way to get this again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark brown with a huge tan head...sediment throughout. Aroma has notable jalapeno...vegetal...mild strawberry. Flavor is very vegetal too...strawberry is lost...jalapeno taste with minimal but present heat...faint burnt/roasty notes. Mouthfeel is medium with a roasty jalapeno/vegetal finish. I guess this is what they were going for but it just doesnt taste very good...i wouldnt drink it again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown color with aroma of jalepeno and caramel with a hint of strawberry. Caramel and fruit up front but dominated by the jalapeno ending. Actually, liked this beer though huge quantities of it would be difficult with the jalapeno

[PJ Whelihans] Brown color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of light caramel, some light strawberry, toast, and some spicy jalapenos. Taste of caramel, vanilla, light strawberry, and spicy jalapeno in the finish.

You can barely taste the strawberry, which to me is a good thing. The jalapeno character comes through but not at all spicy. I adds more of an earthy/doughy character that works well with the brown ale style, but with a peppery aftertaste.

Had at varga in south philly. Pour was a dark orange caramel color. Aroma was dark malts with not much of the strawberry and no jalapeno. Flavor definitely had some spicey undertones that complimented the sweet malts well.
