2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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?!?!

Interesting brew. Decent malty background, caramel with quite intense spiciness, quite herbal, dried fruits, bit wood. Sweet all the way with light bitterness. Feels bit messy, but pleasant and enjoyable

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark clear copper pour with beige head, quickly dissipating. Aroma of dark fruit, spices, cinnamon, honey and yeast. Taste of caramel, malts, yeast, dark fruit, cinnamon, iced tea and faint chili heat on the finish. Full bodied, nice carbonation, long hop syrupy finish. Tasty and interesting but became cloying by the end of the bottle.
