Rating #1191. 19.07.2014 On tap @revolutionyeg Pours a golden yellow with a white foam that bubbles away quickly. Aroma is cascadey-citrusy hops and still roasting peppers. Taste is quite smooth, lightly hopped, mild sweetness and the smokiness/heat from the chilis lingers into the finish, but is not unpleasant. Predictably spicy and delicious. ametras (1630) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2015
22oz bottle. Clear amber with a frothy white head. Flavors are toasted cereals, Belgian yeast, pepper flesh and orange with fruity and spicy notes. Slight heat in the finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation, oily texture. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2015
66cl bomber, BB 11/2014.
De couleur orangée-ambrée, col épais crémeux blanc/beige.
Arôme offre un bouquet discret des piments, je m’attendais à un peu plus, peut-être que l’age y est pour qcq chose. Le cèdre est minimaliste et loin de ce que on avait l’habitude de voir chez CCB sur pour une bière de 8%.
Palais offre une fine note épicée avec ce ôté levure NB assez reconnaissable. Malt du côté carapils, pâle, léger cara, sec en bouche avec une sécheresse boisée du cèdre. Le pimenté monte un peu sur la fin mais sans plus. andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2015
Pours a hazy amber with an average white head and a little lace. Aroma is sweet malts, herbal, spices, and lightly vegetal. Flavour is lightly spicy, sweet malts, herbal, faint alcohol, citrus, and mild bitterness. Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2015
Pours a clear golden orange with a big frothy white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, light vegetal nose with some spicy chilis. Taste is a big sweet malty body balanced nicely with moderate citrus hops, light wood flavor and light chili’s for further balance. This beer doesn’t have as much chili as I’d like but it’s super balanced and easy to drink for 8.5 percent.

Boring hard candy amber ale. Chilis are non existent until it warms considerably. Aroma is candy sugar, caramel, grains, white bread. Taste is moderately sweet and boring.. not good. Bricks (1126) - Delaware, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Not much aroma. Tastes something like a light Barley Wine. Somewhat bitter, can taste the peppers. Not bad. Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Bottle was rather old from a few years back. Poured into snifters at home. Light golden yellow with a mostly transparency. Some active puffy white head. Aroma was light fruits like pear and apples, very slight cedar plank, cereal, and sugar. The taste was...rather old. (My fault,) A little oxidation. Chilies were non-existent, cedar was nearly gone as well. The fruit was OK but I missed out. Light body, nice carb. PartyFowle (954) - - APR 19, 2015
Amber-gold, brilliantly and perfectly clear. Outstanding clarity. A full inch of off-white head is gummy, stocks together in clumps and hangs out for a long while. Light and sweet aroma. Pear, a hint of banana, lavender. Very lightly toasted crackers, a hint of chile. I’ve had a cedar aged beer from Cigar City before. It was like licking a cedar plank, and it was glorious. There’s zero wood in the flavor of this beer. There is, however, a sweet, soft blend of banana and pear, along with chile fumes. Intriguing. Chile heat settles in about halfway through a glass -- it has to build but never gets very intense.
Medium-light body, mild fizz. A gentle, pleasant heat - "very mild" at the Mexican restaurant salsa tray. Clean finish. A decent brew, though not as complex as I expected. madmitch76 (24807) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015

Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and a little dry. Grainy pale malts, creamy sweetness as well. Mild floralness and tangy fruits. Mellow chilli warmth before the light dry finish. Really not that much going on here.
