Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Strong malt aroma, with the chilies in the mix. Deep amber, discolored head. I really don’t 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 don’t 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 don’t know. Silver linings!

Tap at Rattle n’ Hum. Beer pours a murky medium brown with close to zero carbonation. Aroma is honey sweet, offset by a touch of spicy pepper. Flavor is sweet malts, apple, cayenne. Chili or habanero flavor is notable, though not intense. A trace of heat and vanishingly bitter on the finish. Not my favorite

Cloudy, orange appearance. Fruity. Slightly sour, finishes sweet. Quality brew.

Lots of cinnamon. First thing on the palate. But the bitterness of the hops takes hold and never let go.

Found a bottle at a local liquor store. 22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip. Deep copper color with a small head. The cinnamon really comes out in the aroma as well as some heat from the mixture of chilis and alcohol. Taste is a little bit sweet with almost a ginger bread flavor. I could only taste the chilis after eating some spicy food but even still they’re very subdued. Mouthfeel was nice and silky making it a pleasure to drink. Going to purchase another bottle and age it for a year or so, this one definitely needs to mature. All around very good, definitely prefer it to the 10-10-10, but definitely needs to mellow out.

Poured a dark red brown from a bottle. Thick head with a good bit of lacing. Smell does not let on cinnamon taste and is rather boozy. Tastes like a cider and strong ale combined. Cinnamon after taste. Not bad overall.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured on a Trappist glass. the aroma its very quite, very little notes of cinnamon, clove and some alcohol but not much going on. Small white head, brown gold appearance to a very clean and clear body. Up front the cinnamon its the first guest and an even stronger sour taste of the flanders yeast and at the back strong clove. I think the mouth feel its the best about this beer its solid, and oily. Over all a bit better than expected I was a bit disappointed with the lack of aroma on this one but the overall mouth feel gain some of my respect for it but considering that kind of beer and the $$$ for it not bad.
