mmmbeer (1291) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2012
22 oz. in a shaker it went. Letís hope that this one didnít get on the FAILBOAT just like the last one- seeing chiles and cinnamon isnít so reassuring though. Poured a solidly murky darkened amber color with shades of brown, white ring for a head, liquid sits very still. Aroma of old caramel, faded cinnamon, and thatís about it. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, malt is only so slightly sweet, faded chilies in the middle, finish is slightly degraded and falls apart without a definate feel. Real odd one. I shaved my balls for this?!?!

Marduk (3622) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2015
660ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Cloudy, deep amber color. Very malty, chilly peppers, sweet, caramel in aroma. Malty, red chilly, bit of raisins, grassy hops, plums in taste. Spicy grass in aftertaste. Not so shy chilly peppers everywhere.

martjoobolut (1370) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 18, 2015
Bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks!). Pours hazy amber with beige head. The head stays. Aroma is fruits, pears, caramel, malt, chili. Flavor sweet, fruits, malt, some chili. Overall: nice brew.

gpekar (476) - Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Poured a cloudy caramel color. Almost like a freshly pressed apple cider. There was a tall creamy dark tan head. The aroma was mostly yeast and bread. There was a hint of cinamon and some other spices. There beer itself had a thick creamy texture and a very unique flavor. There was a good amount of caramel sweetness along with some dark fruit flavors. There was a hint of cinnamon and some fall like spices, but it also had a bit of an unfiltered fresh apple cider bit of tartness. I didnít get much if any of the pepper aroma or taste. This beer was pretty interesting and I enjoyed it. It was definetely unique in flavor, but nice.

Pleasant chilli aroma. Nice deep red. Sticky malty taste. Spicy, but unbalanced. actually this is a mess. Mashy and sticky. Nope.

Rune (9076) - TromsÝ, NORWAY - APR 19, 2015
Poured from a 650ml bottle. Bubbly fawn-coloured head over a bright mahogany coloured body. Drying aroma of herbs, old books and caramel. Rather strange and unusual taste of bread, spices, wood and, in fact, beetroot joined by some jammy fruits as well. Drying end with warming alcohol. Quite well bodied. Not sure what to make of it, anyway, not a great one (TromsÝ 17.04.2015).

AskForJenny (1033) - Ontario, New York, USA - APR 2, 2015
22 oz cellared - Iíve been sitting on this one. The time was right. Nice ale, gold color, froth. I really had no sense of the chiles or the cinnamon.

fraternie (893) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Amber body, tons of caramel, brown sugar and cinnamon spice on the nose. Lively carbonation, malty but innovative, as sweet, sugary cinnamon stick flavors pick up a blast of chili pepper as it lingers with a touch of heat and residual sweet caramel malt, banana and clove. This would be a perfect pairing with my chili recipe. Booze and spice linger.

Hopmaestro (405) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2015
Aroma of this beast is sweet malts with cloves and cinnamon. Thereís a yeasty tone in here but not overwhelming. The taste is like a big plate of figs, prunes, raisins and other dark fruits. Actually, I catch a kind of marzipan untertone also. The cinnamon is there a little bit, but the chili thatís supposed to be in here is long gone. I would have loved to try this one when fresh for comparison, but thatís impossible so Iíll have to stay true to what I know from this one.

SlackerMads (2013) - DENMARK - MAR 7, 2015
Bottle. Light hazy brown with a large beige head. Spicy and earthy nose. The chilies take a lot of place in the flavour, but no heat. No cinnamon. So basically there is a pretty soft and pleasant malt base with some caramel, brown sugar, light dark bread and on top of that the chilli flavours. Some dusty cocoa, wood and earth and light over ripe banana. Big bodied, soft carbonation, well balanced. Pretty mellow and soft, integrates the alcohol well.
