Fire and Blood is a murky deep red brew with a thick persistent head of off white active bubbles. The nose is very reminiscent of a belgian tripel. Hops, floral esters and maybe a faint hint of ancho chilies. Taste is mild at first. broadens on mid and really blossoms on the finish. very strong vegetable type presence. medium malt. hops are restrained. a bit of heat. good bitters and dry finish. a very interesting and different beer. Body a bit active and fizzy on the tongue.

Brown pour but in dark bar. First sip was more bitter than expected but fruity flavors more noticeable with time. Noticed no chocolate or clover flavors and definitely not stale.

Fire and Blood has a deep, dark red hue with a persistent, creamy off-white head. Aromas of ripe fruit, raisins, malt and slight spice, followed by a slightly floral and spicy hop character. A fruity, sweetish malt taste gives way to faint drying provided by the hops and rye. Underlying flavors of raisin and prune from the ancho chilies give way to a balanced malty and spicy finish.

750mL corked and caged, got the one with the fire on the label. Nose is spicy and phenolic, clove leaking into stale air and plastic, with a fruity and slightly floral background. Better once its in the glass, some chocolaty and earthy character reminiscent of dubbels and Doppebcke, touch of yeast, and the floral character is more easily identified as buckwheat or spelt rather than hops (just as fruit is narrowed to stone fruit). Pours deep, dark red-brown with a rocky, solid and dense beige head. Lightly airy medium again a little vegetal and stale, sweet but not cloying, low bitterness but a gradual drying helps expose a little bite. Yeasty despite my careful pour, with some grit. Heat from the peppers arrives late and is extremely mild (to the point I wouldnt have guessed they were here, maybe said there was a grains of paradise addition); given the complaints I just made about vegetal and airy qualities, it probably would have been better to leave the peppers out if they were going to be used in such small quantities. Moderately creamy and a little slimy. Additionally: black peppercorn and light lavender, the previously suspected malt backed off and lost most all of its complexity, but there is light fruit and lighter citrus. Disappointing.
