Pours a murky brown color with a quickly fading tan head. Smells of deep earthy notes that I canít really pinpoint because I donít have such a sophisticated nose just yet. Perhaps some chocolate or coffee malts in the aroma as well. Taste is threefold; the bitterness hits right away but rolls on smooth - almost reminds me of the Old Guardian Barley Wine in a strange way. The bitterness fades and the taste of the peppers comes through. I didnít LOVE the taste of the peppers, but I could appreciate it for what it is. The finish is warm with the alcohol peeking through. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy. Overall, interesting beer. I like its uniqueness, but I didnít think its features were as unique as the 12.12.12. which I think I like better.

Mild roasted chili flavor in an amber ale. Uses Belgian yeast for slight banana after taste. Second tasting was a bit different. More roasted chili flavor and aroma. Not as much banana as before. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 650 ml. 4 years old. Bronze-amber color with noisy cream foam. Aroma: pleasant,sweetness and port wine, malt, caramel, toffee, dried fruits, plums, raisins, cinnamon and other spices, light chilies. Taste: malt sweetness, port wine or sherry, caramel, toffee and dried fruits (figs, raisins, plums and apricots), spices, cinnamon. Finish rather dry with chilies and hop bitterness. Great brew, good balanced (thanks aging).

old review - got lost when I transferred, apparently. This was one of my faves of the series. Chilli was light but present and the cinnamon spicing was just right.

Poured a cloudy caramel color. Almost like a freshly pressed apple cider. There was a tall creamy dark tan head. The aroma was mostly yeast and bread. There was a hint of cinamon and some other spices. There beer itself had a thick creamy texture and a very unique flavor. There was a good amount of caramel sweetness along with some dark fruit flavors. There was a hint of cinnamon and some fall like spices, but it also had a bit of an unfiltered fresh apple cider bit of tartness. I didnít get much if any of the pepper aroma or taste. This beer was pretty interesting and I enjoyed it. It was definetely unique in flavor, but nice.

Pleasant chilli aroma. Nice deep red. Sticky malty taste. Spicy, but unbalanced. actually this is a mess. Mashy and sticky. Nope.
