Tastes like a stronger Great Lakes Xmas Ale. I liked it and would recommend. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Oh dear, this beer didn’t 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.

Medium beige head atop murky copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, cinnamon, some chile pepper, light candi sugar. Taste is moderately sweet, candi sugar, some orange, cinnamon, light pepper. Butterscotch creeps in as it warms. Medium body, low carbonation, alcohol fairly well masked.

Rated based on notes taken 27 Dec 2011 -- Very good. Much better than the description lead me to believe.

Slightly hazy medium brown body with an average off-white head. The aroma is malty, peppery, spicy. The flavor is sweet, bready, spicy, peppery.

Danyel (1074) - Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle with Salmoniform for my first beer of my birthday (Nov, 11th) with the 11/11 vertical epic. Pours Amber with red hues, off white head. Aroma is strong figs, prunes, dark fruits, plums, vanilla, cinnamon. Taste has peppery heat, lots of dark Belgian esters, prunes, medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Overall, hmmmmm....

Salmoniform (1001) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Copper hue with creamy off white head. Aroma is straw, esters, peppercorn, earthy, prunes, tobacco. Mouthfeel is ok with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a spice astringentness. Overall this is an odd brew.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2014
On draught at Petrol Station. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit and spices. Medium to full body with flavors of caramel malt, dark fruit, herbs and subtle chili pepper. The finish is fruity and malty, with the chili pepper all but nonexistent, possibly due to the age? Pretty good regardless.

Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Amber pour with a small head. Nose has loads of pepper. Pepper all over this. Lime, some apple. Taste is peppers, chocolate. Cardboard. Knackered. Not great.

It pours with a dark amber color that is copped by a big, foamy head. At this point, I expected the aroma to be pretty muted, and it was save for some bread, caramel, and a little bit of the chile. There is still a good hit of spice still present in the flavor, however, which provides a little punch and a little added sweetness even. The additions raise this beer from a solid, malty amber ale without seeming gimmicky. Maybe some of the character has been lost with age, but I found this beer to be quite enjoyable.

radiomgb (2387) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
Rich mahogany in colour, beige head, light lacing. Aroma of cloves, cinnamon hearts, interesting mix. Flavour of light spice, some light sweetness, liquorice. Light spicy mouthfeel, med body, med carb. Finishes with some chilies, spice. Nice, good balance, Chili never overpowering as it’s really only noticeable at the end. Good epic ale.
