Bottled 0,66 ltr (Beer Hunters)
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours clear and sparkling mahogany with a large, frothy and creamy light tan head, long retention with light excellent lacing. Aroma is honey and caramel malt with notes of light toast and biscuit malt, dates and figs, cinnamon notes, huge fruity esters with some cooked banana notes and faint vanilla and peppery alcohol. Flavor is artificial sweetener and Belgian yeast esters, medium sweet malt, light spice/pepper, notes of cinnamon, and a sweet, near cloying finish. The flavor goes downhill after this initial impression, with warmth not helping at all. I am not sure what was meant here, but I hope this was not it. The closest thing I can come up with is dates topped with Sweet-N-Low to describe this - what a horrible mess. I suspect there are some Anaheim peppers in there because the flavor does finish slightly spicy, but the heavy residual sugar masks it. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.
