Aroma is caramel, malt, yeast and hint of spice. Lively mouthfeel. A slight heat (chilis or alcohol) mid palate, with a slightly bitter finish.

22 oz bomber pours a dark amber color with a small white head. Aromas of spice, chilis and cinnamon. Medium bodied, spicy, got better as I drank it. Interesting beer.

scarletfire65 (1066) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle at home. Deep amber, mahogany head. Aroma is sweet malt, cinnamon. Full bodied, tastes of strong cinnamon, smoky chiles, dry and well attenuated. A bit overpowering. Interesting.

spittle8 (126) - 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!

pablo951 (489) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Had it at World of Beer in Evanston IL. Pours a deep copper hue with a firm head and uneven lacing. Smells of musty hops and taste like puntang hops.

Mastelefish (91) - North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2013
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.

Bottle. I had this in 10/13 so it had been cellared properly for a while. I was not a huge fan of this brew. The chiles gave it an off flavor i think.

ajnepple (3059) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2013
22 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into a Duvel tulip. Amber and hazy with a small head. Aroma and flavor of light pepper, cinnamon, veggie, fruity esters, yeast, toasted malts and spices. It was OK.

Nische (1109) - SaltsjŲ-Boo, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2013
Brownish-red with a medium off-white head. Aroma is very sweet and malty, a distinct green pepper aroma from the Anaheims. Taste is medium sweet, mild bitter, and quite vegetal, with some spice and more of the Anaheim peppers. Finish is dry with more pepper coming through.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle from Midtown. Pours a nice copper amber with a dissipating beige head. Aroma of banana esters and candy red hots. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of belgian malts (chocolate, amber), but the chilies and cinnamon are pretty dominant, and blended well. Warming and very phenolic finish, heavy on clove and mustiness. The problem here is that the yeast strain, malts, and spices are not harmonious. Maybe a non Belgian yeast strain would tie everything together, but this beer is a perfect example that some things just donít mix. An odd, but not enjoyable beer. Worst of the series by far
