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.

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

stantheman (1079) - 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

AssKicker (534) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - DEC 9, 2016
Couleur rouge/brune bien propre, mousse onctueuse qui tient le coup. Au nez ça fait un peu penser à du bâton de cannelle. En bouche les poivres viennent directement chatoyer les papilles pour ensuite leur donner de bonnes grosses bouffées de chaleur. C’est assez dingo comme sensation pour une bière, et ça donne envie d’en boire en compagnie d’une bonne viande. Pour le reste, c’est pas amère pour un sou, c’est relativement rond et légèrement malté avec une petite note de caramel en fin de bouche. Une bière bien surprenante.

Dark amber/cider color; Medium body; Aroma of malt, caramel, some fruit, & spice; Flavor of slight sweet malt, caramel, fruit, peppercorns, and spice; Fairly well balanced; Pretty aggressive pepper flavor - but I enjoyed it.

3.6
chinchill (5075) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 16, 2016
11.5 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Pour is hazy dark brown with an off-white head that is not durable and leaves just small spots of lacing. Aroma: dark bread, peppercorns and surprisingly strong toffee/brown sugar notes. Flavor: mildly bitter overall. Lightly spicy grains and sweet upfront. Peppercorns and spicy rye kick in lightly in the fine finish and aftertaste. Overall: well crafted ale featuring sweet malts, rye and pepper.
