Bottle shared at a local tasting, thanks Brad! Pours a clear dark brown with a really thin head, the aroma has a subtle amount of spice with some yeast mixed in too, the flavor has a yeasty front end with a spiced finish, light mouthfeel, was pretty meh.

Pours hazy red.. Smell is pepper forward, with some banana. Some bread. Taste is malty with a red pepper background that eventually takes center stage. Finish is clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - this was aged, but it has completely lost the chile heat or cinnamon character. I agree with the brother, meh.

Medium beige head atop murky copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, cinnamon, some chile pepper, light candi sugar. Taste is moderately sweet, candi sugar, some orange, cinnamon, light pepper. Butterscotch creeps in as it warms. Medium body, low carbonation, alcohol fairly well masked.

Draft. Oh dear, this beer didnít work for me. Over a cloudy amber body, nose is green bell pepper, jalapeno, light strawberry, some fruity yeast and dough. Flavor is awash with simple Belgian amber notes with that lingering green jalapeno waxiness. It lacks a pleasing balance of flavors.

22 oz bottle. Hazy brown with off-white froth. Nose is banana, clove and green chili. Hints of cinnamon and plastic. Medium body with a sharp tingle. Taste is green banana, yeast, bitter grass, bitter spices and earthy chili pepper. A nice inclusion of spicy heat is about all that makes this brew worthy of consumption.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2012 This beer leaves me with a confused look on my face. The spices they used in this beer seem to have worked very well. The base beer however, seems a bit dull, especially when combined with the interesting chili notes. The initial taste that I get is full of the spice from the chili and cinnamon that is quickly followed by waves of yeast and belgian beer characters that frankly donít work to compliment the spice at all. I feel that these spices may be better served with a beer that has a deeper malt background instead of one where the yeast character is fighting with the spices. Altogether this is not as good as 10-10-10 and I didnít love that beer. The aroma is quite perplexing with the chili spice taking the place of the hop characters on the nose.

Pours clear copper color with off white head. Over ripe fruit aroma with some bread dough. Weird vegetal flavor with some cinnamon and toasted malts. Medium body with average carbonation. Iím not liking this one too much.
