Rating #9000
Deep ruby color, small beige head. Berryish, banana and cinnamon aroma. Medium-bodied. Sweetish (US-)Belgian yeasty, fruity flavor has banana, cinnamon and clove - Christmasy taste! Mild chilli burn in the aftertaste, just tickling a bit and then even less when you have drinked more. Ok package, but wouldn’t order another one.

Draught. Dull chestnut with a hint of amber colour. Faint amber malts and light chile on the nose. Light chile taste with sweet, slightly raisiny amber malts. Clean, maybe a little bland but decent.

bhensonb (10803) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours clear ruddy copper with a 4 finger creamy/frothy beige head. Aroma is clearly chili. Nose is now clearly clear. Cinnamon? Med+ body. Frothy carb. Flavor is very chili, not obnoxiously hot like ghost, but chili. There’s a bark aspect, powdery wood aspect, which I think is the cinnamon. But start to finish it’s the chili. Love anaheim chiles. Use them in anything. Works pretty good here. Finishes dry, chili, and dusty/woody/cinnamon. Too bad it’s not TexMex tonite.

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Draft. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and chilli peppers aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet & hot flavor with a medium to heavy hot & sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Not sure if my expectation where met.

rlgk (10112) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle. Amber/copper beer, small offwhite head. Cinnamon aroma, sweetish, the spices kinda kills the rest of the aroma. Cinnamon flavor, chilli, yeasty, some fruits. Very odd.
