Poured on a Trappist glass. the aroma its very quite, very little notes of cinnamon, clove and some alcohol but not much going on. Small white head, brown gold appearance to a very clean and clear body. Up front the cinnamon its the first guest and an even stronger sour taste of the flanders yeast and at the back strong clove. I think the mouth feel its the best about this beer its solid, and oily. Over all a bit better than expected I was a bit disappointed with the lack of aroma on this one but the overall mouth feel gain some of my respect for it but considering that kind of beer and the $$$ for it not bad.

Clear reddish hue, good head fornmation. Dominant belgian yeasty clove aroma, mild peppery spice and toast. Sweet clove up front turns to banana bread with good amount of peppery spice, slightly roasted peppery chili as opposed to the mildness I expected from an Anaheim chili. Still not a big fan of chili beers but this one is definitely more than drinkable.

Bottle. Pours nice amber red. Aroma strong in spices, hops. Slight chili taste with some sweetness. Not Bad.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Aroma of red pepper, paprika, sweet red grapes. Palate is both cooling and warm at the same time. Sweet and hot, like sweet and sour, would pair well with Chinese food. Deep mahogany color, translucent. on tap at wino’s.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bomber. Pours a deep, but clear, garnet with frothy khaki head. The aroma is raisin and obvious peppers, hints of cinnamon and clove, some very distant notes of port and toffee. The flavor is raisin, toast, and a very savory pepper quality. I don’t get much heat, but a whole lot of roasted vegetable. The finish is woody and actually a bit vinous. There are some miscellaneous spicy notes in there, but it’s lost behind all the pepper. Not bad, but I’d rather it up the capsaicin content. Having just the roasted pepper flavor without the heat makes it kinda weird. I bet this would be great for cooking, though...

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.

Joakgust (1517) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle, 75 cl - Red amber beer with a large frothy disappearing head. Aroma is malty with notes of banana muffins, spices and apples. Flavor is malty with notes of minerals, pears and apples. High potential, although at this point it isn’t really quite finished maturing.

Begins with sweet caramel malt with a sweet n’ sour honey molasses flavor cutting in. It is nudged at the finish with a bittersweet peppery cinnamon overlay. Lots of movement here, with a multitude of flavors. Interesting the whole way through.

Draft. Beautiful ruby color. Smells of malt and slightly sour as it warms. Mostly chaulky yeast flavor and texture with a warmth from the chilli cinnamon and booze. Not super inviting but nice. Cinnamon is expressed subtly but is a backbone throughtout.

3.4
Scopey (16562) - 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.
