Bottle. Pours a hazy mahogany red with a short lived off white head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Flavor is big and malty with a spicy background with just the right bite. The finish leaves a little burn in the throat from the chiles. This would go well with flame grilled red meat (especially bison). TIP: Let this beer warm a little after pouring to bring out the full flavors.

A nice brown body with a tan head, retention was good and the lacing was minimal. Aroma had a great banana note, but the cinnamon and chillies seemed hidden. There was a slight brown sugar note in the background. Flavor had a little more balance the banana was there but i could get a little more of a spice note. Nice esters. Alcohol was present. Carbonation was great.

On draft at the Holy Grail in Plano, Texas. Spicy, hoppy and boozy. What else could a man want?

Really unique. Sweet flavor comes through from the peppers, and the spice is all from the hops and cinnamon, not spicy hot, just spiced. Sweet malty flavor carries it home.

Deep reddish brown color in the glass. It has an aroma of roasted malts and spices. The flavor is smooth with banana’s and figs. The spice from the chile comes on the back end. Tasty beer. Definitely caught me off guard but it was good.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2011 Bottle via StateLine. Light red in color, decent head. Nose of belgian candy sugar...yeast notes. Taste is ehh.... Initially a sweet candy sugar taste followed by some spices, cinnamon and chiles... But it doesnt blend well together at all... A sweet holiday ale with some spices. I wanted to like this beer but just cant... dissapointed. I poured 95% of this beer out

JaBier (4532) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine on 12/10/11. Pours a clear reddish copper with a thin beige head. Aroma of cherry, banana, phenolics, a bit of vanilla and some spiciness. Banana and pepper flavor with cherry and caramel before an herbal, peppery and sweet finish.

Bottle. I was pretty impressed with this one. It is kind of like a Beligian strong ale, mixed with a German Doppleweiss, with a kick. The palate is what was mindblowing to me. At first, it makes the tounge tingle, as it warms and as I adjusted to it, the cinnamon really came out and almost burned, but quickly subsided.

Pours a reddish brown with thin mocha head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, cloves, chilies and some malt. Taste is exactly as advertised; a Belgian strong with chilies. While it’s not as harsh or hot as some pepper flavoured beers I’ve sampled of late I don’t think it’s a variation I love. The heat is subtle and lingering but, like with chocolate, I don’t really want spice heat in my beer. Overall well made but loses points for the chilies.
