COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is that terror in your eyes? Fear not fellow beer drinker, for the flame is contained. Follow your curiosity, grasp the wonder, and venture into the mystique that rests beneath this cap. Journey into the mythical Blue Ridge mountains and find the 6-row barley and red wheat of Riverbend Malt, and the raw wildflower nectar of Haw Creek Honey. Do not cower beneath the fiery blaze of Belgian crystal malts and the endless abyss of mystery found within the well-aged staves of Bulleit Rye Whiskey casks. Harness the glory of patience; find solace in savoring, for the spectacle of the Firebreather amplifies with every passing moment.

djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle. Pours a light brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is yeast, dark fruit, pure sugar. Medium mouth, rye, light spice, boozy finish, good.

chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Large shared bottle. Looks and smells great but the flavor is a bit of a mess. In fact, the flavor is more disappointing given the aroma than any beer I’ve had lately.

Bottle shared at Crooked Stave, courtesy of Greg. Pour is clear mahogany with a small tan head and great lacing. Tangy, dark fruity, yeasty, bready, light pepper, and grapey aroma. Taste is light spice, cherry pit, grapes, toffee, caramel, light figs, and raisins with a light alcoholic burn on the backend. Full mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not bad.

GTAEgeek (2338) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2014
750 mL bottle from Ale Alpharetta. Pours a slightly hazy, reddish-orange, with a small beige head. The aroma is candy orange slices, caramel, cinnamon, vanilla, and some light earthiness and some resin. Very sweet and malty, with a fairly significant savory spiciness. Heavy body, sticky, and syrupy. Overall, this is a big, boozy, malty beer. Not very subtle, but delicious, spicy, and thick.

4.6
Cybercat (6017) - Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours an appetizing clear mahogany with a thick, frothy, pale buff head. Strong, fruity aroma has a decided whisky overtone plus malty and woody notes. Lip-smacking flavor starts with fruity and whisky notes, then adds oak and subtle malty tones to the mix, finally tossing in a dash of hops. Texture is firm, smooth, and rather fizzy, leaving a finish that is fruity sweet but not cloying, and has a little kick of whisky at the very end. Breathe a little fire.

3.7
