22 oz bomber, this thing is a mess. The nose is pretty good, actually smells pretty good. Taste is way too much of the chili. This is certainly my least favorite of the vertical epic series.

MarinaMarket (233) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Aroma of chilis, sugar, alcohol, spice. Pours well with beautiful head, red/brown reminiscent of Insanely Bad Elf. Unbalanced in flavor, with chilis, sharp vegetal hop flavor, Medium bodied, strong carbonation, and a bit of tropical note. Warming for sure, and needs a bit of time IMO. Tasted from the bottle @ 58F.

Nice looking copper pour with good white head. Somewhat similar to an xmas ale, due to the spice level.

NeuroPliny (232) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
Pours orange-amber. Subtle spice aroma with hints of cinnamon. Sour mash up front with a complex lambic-esque finish.

Bottle courtesy of Dale. Sweet, spicy, malty, pepper, cinnamon. Medium body. Low drinkability due to the odd flavor profile. Misstep.

kindacold (230) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Pours beautiful amber with white head. Neutral smell. Tastes like peppers, cinnamon, caramel, malt, and hops. A bit sticky on the finish, with a very bitter aftertaste.

This beer is different! I’m not sure what fruit they added but its not good. First taste was awful but after two or three more out was ok. Doing think I’ll try again

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours reddish-brown with very thin head. Sweet malty aroma with pronounced chile notes. Flavor is all chiles up front, with a smooth malt finish with hints of chocolate. It certainly isn’t for everyone, but if you like the taste of chiles (no heat here, just flavor) this one’s a winner.

CarlJonas (228) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2014
Slightly cloudy, light brown liquid with a small off-white head. Drapes aplenty. Robust malty aroma of dark fruits with a hint of hot spices. A bit underwhelming, medium sweet taste, some almost medicinal bitterness towards the finish, a little alcohol. There is definitely chilli and cinnamon there but they feel kind of tired like an old spice jar left on the rack though the best before date passed years ago. Some chilli heat in the aftertaste. Medium to rich mouthfeel, low carbonation. Think I held on to this one a bit too long, but still pretty good.
