look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Added from notes I have finally gotten around to adding that I took over thanksgiving weekend last year.

A: Half finger white head on a murky crimson body.

S: Peppercorn, oak notes and mild chile/habanero.

T: sweet caramel malt with herbal and spicey notes overlying the malts.

M: light to moderate carbonation with a moderate body and of course a warm chile aftertaste.

O: Nutty notes are there but like so many others including chile peppers, these distract from the flavor and that is why this is one of my least favorite genres.

A: Slightly cloudy yellow/orange. With a half finger white head.

S: A bit sweet and woody with chili pepper.

T: Cashews, bourbon, sweet malt, a touch of chili pepper heat in the finish.

M: Creamy, mild carbonation with a slight chili pepper burn.

O: I really enjoyed this. It had just the right amount of heat to enhance rather than distract from the other flavors. I don't know what barrels they used for this, but it has a touch of Cashew Mountain Brown taste.
