This beer is different! I’m not sure what fruit they added but its not good. First taste was awful but after two or three more out was ok. Doing think I’ll try again NeuroPliny (247) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 19, 2013
Pours orange-amber. Subtle spice aroma with hints of cinnamon. Sour mash up front with a complex lambic-esque finish. kindacold (235) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Pours beautiful amber with white head. Neutral smell. Tastes like peppers, cinnamon, caramel, malt, and hops. A bit sticky on the finish, with a very bitter aftertaste. kenwall17 (232) - new york, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Nice looking copper pour with good white head. Somewhat similar to an xmas ale, due to the spice level. BeerBoxer (232) - Sacramento, USA - JAN 24, 2012
pours a hazy amber with a light fizz. Aroma is smoky and earthy. Flavor is full of chilli and malt.

Bottle courtesy of Dale. Sweet, spicy, malty, pepper, cinnamon. Medium body. Low drinkability due to the odd flavor profile. Misstep. CarlJonas (231) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2014
Slightly cloudy, light brown liquid with a small off-white head. Drapes aplenty. Robust malty aroma of dark fruits with a hint of hot spices. A bit underwhelming, medium sweet taste, some almost medicinal bitterness towards the finish, a little alcohol. There is definitely chilli and cinnamon there but they feel kind of tired like an old spice jar left on the rack though the best before date passed years ago. Some chilli heat in the aftertaste. Medium to rich mouthfeel, low carbonation. Think I held on to this one a bit too long, but still pretty good. Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours reddish-brown with very thin head. Sweet malty aroma with pronounced chile notes. Flavor is all chiles up front, with a smooth malt finish with hints of chocolate. It certainly isn’t for everyone, but if you like the taste of chiles (no heat here, just flavor) this one’s a winner. emeinz (220) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bottle to tulip. Dark copper pour with medium beige head. slight cinnamon aromas with a bit of earthiness.
Not bad. i think I need to reflect on this beer a little more 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.
