TheEpeeist (3557) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2011
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 don’t 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 didn’t 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. I’m not liking this one too much.

Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Bomber. Cloudy reddish orange color with a tan head that lasts a minute. Chile peppers are prevalent. Aroma is yeast. I like the idea of a chile pepper beer but not as good as chipotle from rogue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
