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.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2013
22oz bottle, shared. Big body. Lighter, crisp carbonation. Mildly sticky finish. Mostly clear darker red color. Minimal off-white head. Good chile nose, but taste is more astringently sweet. Light chile kick, but Iím not sure that it works with the candy sweetness of this brew, though. Light chile and belgian candi sugar aroma. Decent, wish it was less sweet, though, with more pronounced chile

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Didnít like it...sweet beer with too much peppers, balance was off. Peppers didnít seem to mix with the rest well, and it really just plain didnít taste good

Hazy amber with a nice head. Aroma of alcohol and oxidation, raisins, caramel. Taste of lots of the same, very raisiny, some mango, nose that lasts into palate.

A: cherry red with a finger of transient yellow foam. Spotty lace.Excellent clarity. S: cloves, bananas, chillies, cinnamon, just enough chili to make me interested. T: tastes like a Belgian tripel with cinnamon and chili essence. Wrong yeast for this beer. M: medium bodied with Smooth velvet carb. O: meh. Cool idea. Want less yeast, more chili. Serving type: bottle 11-11-2011
