4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.

On draft at Capones. Pours a very dark brown cola color with a small light beige head. Aroma of brown nuts, hints of coffee, jalapenos and a touch of strawberries. Taste of cocoa powder, jalapenos, nuts and a slight hint of strawberries. Strawberries come out as it warms up. Tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Capone’s. Poured a deep brown with muddy lighter brown edges. Aroma of jalapenos, toast and chocolate malt. Flavor is very similar with notes of peppers, chocolate, toast and brownies. Medium bodied with strong carbonation and slight pepper heat throughout. Pretty good, I guess if you add peppers to almost anything I’m bound to like it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Canal’s. pours out a nice reddish hued brown color with a medium off white head with lots of carbonation. Aroma is of fresh strawberry jam, caramel, toffee, some earthy jalapeño notes and light brown sugar. Taste is well balanced, caramel malts, strawberry jam, jalapeño spice that lingers on the back end with a light touch of bitterness on the finish. Different but I kind of like it.

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

Bottle at MFF compliments of Taylor, pours reddish purple with light head. Aromas of strawberry, green pepper, Belgian spice. Taste is peppers, dark fruits, plum, wood, and malt. One of the most interesting beers I have had from them but nothing I would try again.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes: Poured hazy nut-brown, with a 3-finger light tan head. Aroma of jalapeno, with some sweet strawberry underneath. Body is medium and lightly oily. Lightly roasty, nutty flavor that gives way to some heat from the peppers. Didn’t get any of the strawberry in the flavor at all, which could have balanced the pepper if it was more notable.
