|I mean figuratively big|
The flavors are caramel malt and a huge hit of the Anaheim Chili with which it is brewed. It is also brewed with cinnamon sticks but I didn't really notice that, which I don't consider a very bad thing. There is a strong bitter note which sticks with you.
As you can see, it pours a cloudy, dark reddish amber. There is very little head.
This beer is not for the faint of heart and I can see it not being for just anyone's palate. Now, where I probably went a bit awry was drinking this now instead of letting it age for the recommended year. This is my problem. I want to cellar some beer, but I just have to pop one and try it first.
What were my thoughts? Ummmm, it didn't overly impress me. It was good, but didn't make me say "wow". The pronounced flavor of the chili takes some getting used to. I'm sure I could learn to like it, but there isn't any left at the store. :)
Recommend served with chili, steak or something that the beer will not overpower in flavor.
