tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - NOV 12, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 On draught at OíNeillís on 12 Nov 11. Pours a clear and impressive deep dark amber with lasting tan head. Medium to full body. Rich malty flavors with subtle spices and a slight warming note. A bit filing but nice cold weather sipping beer. 11/12/2011 On draught at OíNeillís Stone Beer Dinner. Pours a dark amber with a white head. Full-bodied. Even match between chile and slightly dry malty flavors. Late bump from chile heat. Belgian yeast character comes out when paired with clam chowder. Cinnamon spice not pronounced.

Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of burnt carmel, cinnamon and light chilies. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of burnt carmel, cinnamon, toffee and a hint of chilies with a crisp lingering burnt carmel finish.

Tap. Interesting. Can definitely get the chili in both the flavor and aroma. Not sure if Iíd consume mass quantities but glad I tried it.

flatmatt (1400) - Northville, Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2011
22 oz bottle. Pours a red amber with a yellowy off-white head. Aroma has red grape, a little yeasty banana, a hint of tartness. Flavor has some dark fruit, cocoa powder, earthiness. An interesting flavor that I canít place until I remember seeing the note about Anaheim chilies. I also get the cinnamon a little. Seems pretty well done, but I just donít think I can get totally into this.

Pours a nice reddish brown and has a very interesting spice character that got worse as time went by for me.

Bomber. Dark brown and clear with a very small head. Nose is a bit winey and herbal with little malt or hop presence. Taste is bit herbal/perfumy, with some mild peppery flavors and a sticky sweetness. I donít get this as a Belgian strong ale, which I always assume would have much more maltiness and a firmer body. Overall a decent beer but for a vertical just average.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle.
Pours a rich brown with a nose of earthy jalepeno and light cocoa. Flavor is a quick rush of chocolate quickly tempered by an organic pepper and dirt essence that leaves a leafy aftertaste. Average mouthfeel. Intentions were good but it misses the mark.

topherh (1919) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Pours dark amber with a khaki head. Aroma is cinnamon, caramel and spice. Flavor starts sweet with cinnamon, then becomes earthy and bitter with a little spice, finishing with a little heat you can feel in the back of you throat.

Pours a amber to brow. Generous white to off white head. A sour raisiny malt carries into an interesting jalapeŮo note.
