Gorgeous beer, a deep, rich, cloudy copper. Strong cinnamon on the aroma, brown sugar, chiles are lurking, spice... well-made, great mouthfeel, assertive flavors, nicely balanced, alternately bitter & sweet, tinge of heat, really well crafted beer, delicious.

julieimagery (182) - Coconut creek, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2012 Smells very strong of spices, chilies, and cinnamon. Sweet and very spicy with a strong chili taste and cinnamon backbone. Not too bitter, but very spicy. Gets a bit tiring to the palate after the first 12 oz.

Very malty cinnamon flavor. Sweet rate with veer common sweety finish. Unbelievably good and complex beer.

VRBJG (159) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 9, 2011
UPDATED: APR 8, 2012 Dark reddish-brown with a medium tan head. Smells of the peppers and clove. Taste is nice. The heat of the cinnamon and pepper don?t overpower the rest of the brew.

Aromas of sweet malt and subtle raisin and chile. Taste is dark malty sweetness, uncooked chiles, a little rasin and nice spice. Chile lingers in the finish, but is not spicy.

01.27.2011 - Houston, TX Bottle Interesting ale. Strong background of cinnamon and chilies that is a little unsettling. Nice to have once but not my favorite. Unique for sure.

Fatalstrike (130) - Cerritos, California, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Pours a dark orange with amber hues. Offwhite foam that rims the glass. Aroma is filled with yeasty esters of bananas and spice. Some vegetal notes as well. Flavor is very spicy. Bananas, cloves, peppers. The spice from the yeast, cinnamon, and chiles really blends together nicely. Great improvement over last years release. Curious to see how this ages.

spittle8 (124) - California, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Strong malt aroma, with the chilies in the mix. Deep amber, discolored head. I really donít care for this one, it is a fine beer, but it is not epic in any way. The chillies are pleasant, and the flavor complex, but I just donít care for this one particularly. It is remarkably drinkable for a beer that is damned near 10%, though! I could chug this beer, or just pound it. How they managed that, I donít know. Silver linings!

Pours a dark amber that still letís some light through. One inch head that disappears even after an aggresive pour. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, alcohol, some spices. Taste is a bit muddled. The lable says that itís based on a Belgian golden ale but it seems like the base is a Belgian strong dark ale. There are spices in the taste but not to sure about the chiles in there. It was worth a try once. Not sure if I would go for it again.
