3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A- clear ruby in color with a two finger head. Very pretty.
S- smells like hot Tabasco and slight chile fruit. The aroma is dominated by the Anaheim chiles.
T- lots going on here. Slight hint of cinnamon, caramel, burnt sugar, ground coffee, even a bit of cacao some fresh green chile fruit. Bitter finish with a slight cheese aftertaste. Very complex.
M- medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Chile warmth in the back of the throat after a few sips.
O- like I said, there is a lot going on with this beer. At first my palate was bombarded with a bunch of different flavors, but after a while I was able to pick them out. So yeah, still tastes pretty good after a year. Happy Veterans Day!
Clear amber. Full body, moderately flavored, well rounded mouthfeel, high heat, average length.
Mildly bitter, a bit sweet, crisp.
Malty, caramel, hint of cinnamon and chiles as promised.

Deep brown colour on the body, quite hzy, murky even, with almost a finger of thick, beige head on top. Good foam retention.
The aroma has spices, cinnamon indeed, light chillie peppers, hint of caramel, belgian yeast, cookies.
Taste is mildly sweet with caramel and light toffee, cinnamon following, not much of the chillies on the taste, bready malts, cookies, cinnamon rolls, faint alcohol.
Medium thick body with good carbonation, sightly sticky on the palate.
Pretty good, it has held very well.

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish. lownote (585) - Austin, Alabama, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Version 2. Ah, fresh hops. This is really good. Nice sweetness hidden under a gentle but very present hop flavor. Nice carbonation that is a light body and lively but not intense. A bit overly cloudy. jandd1983 (4720) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle. It poured a reddish/brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of chiles, cinnamon, raisin and dark fruits. The taste was similar to the aroma with more chiles. malts and a spicy sweet finish. AWISLguy (3497) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2015
650ml bottle cellared 4 years and shared by all during the family Christmas vertical with the 08/09/10/11/12. Thanks for the help, bro, in acquiring these. Dark reddish pour. Cinnamon, chiles in the nose. Taste leads with that but the main player turns out to be a bit more of an amber. Sweet, wit h the other presence around the edges. Chiles mellowed out over the time? 13.4
