Wow this is quite a unique beer. The chiles, cinnamon, red wine all combine to make one fun beverage. I do enjoy this more than the regular 11-11-11. Some caramel and toffee notes, toasted grain. A bit of tartness. Cool stuff.

Murky amber pour with a small off-white head. Nose is chili pepper, oak, wine, and sugar. Somewhat grassy, quite sweet, cinnamon, black pepper, and caramel. Weird flavor to this. Chili pepper, lots of wood, cinnamon, black pepper, and very sweet sugar. A bit of toasted bread, grass, and moderate amount of red wine. Not a big fan of this.

Big thanks to Sparky for sharing this. It pours hazy copper with a gold edges and a thin light tan head. The aroma has spicy white oak, mild red wine notes and then faint coriander and clove and just a dash of anise like spiciness. The taste has an odd mix of malt sweetness and dry red wine that has a Sangria wine sort of sensation. In the background are mild spiciness noted in the nose. Very interesting mix of flavors that work pretty well for me.
