Bottle from Kihoskh. Clear brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel, dark malts and cinnamon. Flavor is quite sweet and moderate bitter. Sweet and moderate bitter finish with a little warming alcohol. 150815 rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle. Amber/copper beer, small offwhite head. Cinnamon aroma, sweetish, the spices kinda kills the rest of the aroma. Cinnamon flavor, chilli, yeasty, some fruits. Very odd.

22 oz. bottle, split many ways, pours a dark reddish amber / brown with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted hazelnuts, dark fruits, caramel, candied sugar and some spices (cinnamon, coriander, and some other undetectable ones). Flavour is quite spicy and sweet, with a melange of spices, sweet, candied sugar / caramel malt, toasted nuts, with burnt sugar / cloying sweetness on the finish. Nasty medicinal finish. Not impressed with this series, least of all this latest installment. Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
Draught. Dull chestnut with a hint of amber colour. Faint amber malts and light chile on the nose. Light chile taste with sweet, slightly raisiny amber malts. Clean, maybe a little bland but decent. TBone (17987) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2011

Deep ruby color, small beige head. Berryish, banana and cinnamon aroma. Medium-bodied. Sweetish (US-)Belgian yeasty, fruity flavor has banana, cinnamon and clove - Christmasy taste! Mild chilli burn in the aftertaste, just tickling a bit and then even less when you have drinked more. Ok package, but wouldn’t order another one.

Pleasant chilli aroma. Nice deep red. Sticky malty taste. Spicy, but unbalanced. actually this is a mess. Mashy and sticky. Nope.
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Murky red - red brownish color, medium to full sized dense beige head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, sweetness, a touch of herbs or spices. Taste malts, again quite sweet, alcohol or liquor, some herbs or spices, but slightly hops and a very nice bitterness as well. Medium to full body and carbonation. Ferris (16268) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle - Malty toffee nose with chili peppers. Cloudy amber with a thin head. The flavor was dominated by chili powder, which tasted like it was dumped in. I found this beer to be out of balance and almost undrinkable with the way the pepper tasted. This may be due to the age of the beer. bhensonb (15601) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis, CA. Pours clear ruddy copper with a 4 finger creamy/frothy beige head. Aroma is clearly chili. Nose is now clearly clear. Cinnamon? Med+ body. Frothy carb. Flavor is very chili, not obnoxiously hot like ghost, but chili. There’s a bark aspect, powdery wood aspect, which I think is the cinnamon. But start to finish it’s the chili. Love anaheim chiles. Use them in anything. Works pretty good here. Finishes dry, chili, and dusty/woody/cinnamon. Too bad it’s not TexMex tonite. Scopey (15427) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2012
Tap at Churchill’s, San Marcos. It pours deep amber, with a decent beige head. The nose is banana, chilli pepper, earth, cinnamon and caramel. The taste is caramelised banana, caramel, toasted malt, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, some chilli pepper, wood and earth, with some bitterness in the finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. An interesting brew for sure, but I just don’t thing the balance is quite right.
