Bottle shared at the 6th annual Richmond Industry Gathering, 11/27/11. Pours a clear amber color with a thin frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of peppery, earthy notes, stone fruits, toffee malts. The taste is peppers, stone fruits and pale malts in the finish. Medium bodied. Shaftie (218) - , Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2011
On tap. Didn’t get any of the chiles. Got some barrel, got lots it actually. Barrel dominated and thru me for a loop. Certainly not what you’d expect...again. Least this time it doesn’t taste like flower petals. pjtakacs (8) - - NOV 27, 2011 does not count
Bottle.... Pours a deep reddish amber with an off white head. distinctive cinnamon taste in the beginning followed by the Anaheim chili at the end.. the spiciness is unique. An interesting beer but nothing i’m craving anytime soon. just ok. tia (2226) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Tap. Interesting. Can definitely get the chili in both the flavor and aroma. Not sure if I’d consume mass quantities but glad I tried it. jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours copper with a large beige head. Aroma of funk with a hint of pepper. Flavors of caramel malts, artificial sweetener, syrup, a funky yeast flavor and peppers starting in the middle to the end. Don’t taste the cinnamon. Overall the flavors combine to give the beer a taste similar to dirt. Not good.

Draft. Clear amber color, massive tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of Christmas - light, sweet spice. Taste is similar. italianjohn (3138) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Clear chestnut pour thin off white head light lacing great looking color .... aroma is of cinnamon and fruity yeast, little syrup and some of the pepper .... taste is spicy you definitely feel the heat and a tingly spice of the pepper on your tongue from start to finish but the flavor is mostly sweet fruity yeast, some caramel malt, little candi syrup and cinnamon .... finishes dry and warm with a tingle of the peppers ..... abv is hidden well not a bad brew just wouldn’t say its epic or anything AirForceHops (7238) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Draft in a snifter @ Sunset Grill and Tap, Allston, MA. It pours dark brown, having thick off-white head. Mild retention. Nose of toasted malt and some light yeast. Not sure where in the world the chilies are? I don’t get it in the nose or flavor. No heat at all. Some caramel sweetness, some cinnamon, lots of sweet bread. Yeast and strong ale Belgian note’s but… not really anything as good as I was expecting. A let down on draft. dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle from kegs and barrels. Pours a deep reddish amber with a tin iff white head. The aromas are black pepper, cinnamon. The mouthfeel is spicy, slightly bitter and dryish with a medium body. Cheers! adrian910ss (2575) - Doylestown, PA, USA - NOV 26, 2011
22 oz bomber. Pours a clear deep ruby red mahogany color with a medium sized creamy beige head. Aroma of chillies, cinnamon and candied malt. Taste of candied malt, chillies and cinnamon. Interesting.
