2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - Malty toffee nose with chili peppers. Cloudy amber with a thin head. The flavor was dominated by chili powder, which tasted like it was dumped in. I found this beer to be out of balance and almost undrinkable with the way the pepper tasted. This may be due to the age of the beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright red/mahogany sort of colour, quite clear with a light head. Hot peppers and cinnamon on the nose with a really curried feel and some dark fruit in the back. Red licorice was my first impression on the palate with peppers and cinnamon. Thereís just too much spice in this stuff and I think itís the cinnamon more than the chiles. A little astringent and warm.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber, medium brown head, some lacing. Aroma and flavor of Chile, chocolate, cinnamon, caramel, dried fruit. Medium sweet, quite spiced. A bit of orange zest. Medium body, creamy, ABV well hidden. I enjoyed this one.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent beer. A bit sweet. No heat at all. Anaheim chilies don't really work. Won't have again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A quite nice, unique beer. Pours a beautiful amber red with a thick tan head. Smells great, some chili and chocolate, coriander, much more sweet then the taste. Taste is hard to describe, almost like bitter chocolate, a hint of bananas, and some heat from the chilis. Let sit for a while, and it calms down. Not as intense as many beers with chili. Very tasty! Had in the bottle.

Rich and wine like nose, plenty of fruit, a nice viscosity and a little spice, a little heat. Hops carry all the flavors to the top of their game, with a funky earthy floral spicy profile. Special beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Strong malt aroma, with the chilies in the mix. Deep amber, discolored head. I really donít care for this one, it is a fine beer, but it is not epic in any way. The chillies are pleasant, and the flavor complex, but I just donít care for this one particularly. It is remarkably drinkable for a beer that is damned near 10%, though! I could chug this beer, or just pound it. How they managed that, I donít know. Silver linings!

Bottle at home. Deep amber, mahogany head. Aroma is sweet malt, cinnamon. Full bodied, tastes of strong cinnamon, smoky chiles, dry and well attenuated. A bit overpowering. Interesting.

22 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma of malts, chili, citrus and grain. Taste is the malts, grain and a spicy finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Blue monk. Pours a reddish brown with an off white head that is very frothy. Sweet Aroma with brown sugar and some spice. Tastes sweet up front with a lot of brown sugar and belgian yeast. Not too spicy, but thereís definitely something going on.
