COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Routes des épices (French for "Spice Route") is a rye beer brewed with both black and green peppercorns. Initially, the beer reveals flavours of fresh grain and malt, which give it notes of chocolate, caramel, and fruit. The pepper flavour and aroma is fully revealed in the finish, which leaves a pleasant, spicy, tingling sensation on the tongue.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2018 Bottle. Pours clear chestnut with huge offwhite head. Aroma is caramel, ripe fruit, figs, dates, raspberry and cream. Taste is medium to very sweet, light bitter and light acidic. Body is milky with light carbonation. Finish is long and mostly sweet with distinct notes of black pepper (slightly hot).

Pours a light mahogany coloration with an amber tinge and a medium, fizzy head. Smells of light caramel malt, rye grain and and a certain green pepper note. Taste is dominated by caramel malt, and dark bread crust, with a strong rye grain character that is complemented very nicely by a mellow pepper note. A hint of dark fruit and toffee in there as well. Finishes bittersweet, with quite a bit more pepper coming through in the aftertaste that pleasantly lingers on the tongue. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation. One of the better pepper beers I've had, I think the pepper complements the rye character very well here, which already has peppery undertones. Notes of toffee and dark fruit create additional complexity.

An interesting attempt, it is supposed to be spicy, it is. You really taste the peppers. Tasteful, but not my type.

From Bierkraft. In Teku glass. Playing Cafe 0. The peppermint, although not excessive, its still too tiresome and hot for me. In any case, it can be finished without disgust but slowly

Bottle. Amber with one finger head. Mainly caramel in the body with light rye. Some spice, especially peppercorn. Not my favorite offering from these guys, but as usual, it's a well brewed beer with no technical flaws at all.

A pepper bomb. Artisanal. Bottle, Jug Shop, San Francisco. Plenty of malt goodness. Wouldn’t drink more than one.

stantheman (1173) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Small bottle from Liberty on The Drive in Vancouver. A brownish orange beer with moderate whitish head and faint vegetal nose. A curious mix of aromatic spices not unlike pumpkin spices; i.e. clove, cinnamon, nutmeg. No hop or malt detected. A bit of a hot and peppery aftertaste. 3.4

3.7
Arcanor (421) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2017
On tap at Boswell and a couple of bottles in the past. Brownish color with minimal foam. Aroma is spicy, pepper and caramel notes. Same for the taste. Medium body and low carbonation. Slick with a long spicy mix finish.
