Rune (9661) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - APR 19, 2015
Poured from a 650ml bottle. Bubbly fawn-coloured head over a bright mahogany coloured body. Drying aroma of herbs, old books and caramel. Rather strange and unusual taste of bread, spices, wood and, in fact, beetroot joined by some jammy fruits as well. Drying end with warming alcohol. Quite well bodied. Not sure what to make of it, anyway, not a great one (TromsÝ 17.04.2015).

22 oz cellared - Iíve been sitting on this one. The time was right. Nice ale, gold color, froth. I really had no sense of the chiles or the cinnamon.

fraternie (947) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Amber body, tons of caramel, brown sugar and cinnamon spice on the nose. Lively carbonation, malty but innovative, as sweet, sugary cinnamon stick flavors pick up a blast of chili pepper as it lingers with a touch of heat and residual sweet caramel malt, banana and clove. This would be a perfect pairing with my chili recipe. Booze and spice linger.

Hopmaestro (848) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2015
Aroma of this beast is sweet malts with cloves and cinnamon. Thereís a yeasty tone in here but not overwhelming. The taste is like a big plate of figs, prunes, raisins and other dark fruits. Actually, I catch a kind of marzipan untertone also. The cinnamon is there a little bit, but the chili thatís supposed to be in here is long gone. I would have loved to try this one when fresh for comparison, but thatís impossible so Iíll have to stay true to what I know from this one.

SlackerMads (2354) - DENMARK - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle. Light hazy brown with a large beige head. Spicy and earthy nose. The chilies take a lot of place in the flavour, but no heat. No cinnamon. So basically there is a pretty soft and pleasant malt base with some caramel, brown sugar, light dark bread and on top of that the chilli flavours. Some dusty cocoa, wood and earth and light over ripe banana. Big bodied, soft carbonation, well balanced. Pretty mellow and soft, integrates the alcohol well.

Beerdedone (3062) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours amber with a small off-white head. Aroma was malty with caramel, cinnamon and had a hint of peppers. Flavor was quite sweet with caramel, toffee, yeast, cinnamon and some subtle chili peppers. Medium body, low carbonation, warming dry finish.

charule (1821) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle from some bottle shop out in the middle if nowhere. Poured dark amber with thin cream head. Aroma sweet candy citrus fruity spices. Light carb med bod. Taste starts to show the cinnamon and chili pepper still sweet

wedgie9 (2528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 16, 2015
From notes. Tasted on 12/12/12 from a capped 22oz bottle with Curtis, and the Nashville crew. Pours hazy orange/amber with an average off-white head that leaves thin, bubbly lace. The nose is full of malty caramel with some chili pepper and cinnamon underlying. The flavor is sweet caramel malt up front, moving to cinnamon and chili pepper spice, pretty simple. The body is full and sticky with average carbonation and a long sweet caramel and spicy chili finish.

elihapa (1533) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Draft. Oh dear, this beer didnít work for me. Over a cloudy amber body, nose is green bell pepper, jalapeno, light strawberry, some fruity yeast and dough. Flavor is awash with simple Belgian amber notes with that lingering green jalapeno waxiness. It lacks a pleasing balance of flavors.
