look: 1.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a strange dark brown but see through like soda. Had a strange carbonation fizz that went away instantly leaving no head at all and no carbonation bubbles at all. The smell is of cinnamon and all spice, reminds me of an apple pie a lot. No cocoa smell at all. After a minor spillage incident we will get to the tasting. Very harsh on the tongue, and by that I mean the carbonation bubbles are very intense and unpleasant. Like the smell the taste is a lot like cinnamon and other spices but in an unflattering way. This might be my least favorite of the lips of faith series and may not be finishable. The mouthfeel is very light and unpleasant. I apologize for giving this beer such a bad review but I think there was a lot to be desired after drinking this beer.

I did not like this beer at all.

I saw it, liked the bottle, read the ingredients and thought that could be good. I was wrong.

Had a nice light brown color.

Poured almost flat with no head at all.

The taste was spicy chocolate in a bad way. Burning alcohol aftertaste.

I normally like all of New Belgiums creations but do not recommend this unless you wanna play a joke on someone,

This was a huge letdown for me. As an avid Mexican food fan, I was looking forward to something complex, flavorful, and spicy. The bottle design is intriguing and colorful. The initial nose is nice, with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. The appearance was a little thin, with very little lacing and a weak head.

This was shared with a few mates at a tasting party. We all came to the same conclusion...it wasn't worth finishing our glasses. The remainder of the beer was poured down the sink. I rarely dispose of mediocre beer. But, I couldn't bring myself to finishing this one. Very disappointed.

22oz bottle poured into an Idle hands tulip.

A - Pours a deep brown/mahogany color with a short cap of fizzy off-white foam that falls off almost instantly fizzing away in manner resembling but not quite matching soda. Settles in to a somewhat odd muddy/hazy body that I can't quite describe, but gives a bit of an "off" appearance in the glass.

S - Lots of cinnamon up front, blending into a green and vegetal aroma of peppers, caramel, sugary sweetness, light sprinkle of cocoa, a touch of smokiness. Peppers seem a bit funny to me...so far, 2 for 2 - something in the appearance and aroma that seems a bit "off" that I can't quite put a finger on.

T - Quite sweet up front and loaded with ground cinnamon flavor. A fruity flavor reminiscent of berries quickly joins in with the cinnamon for a distinctly non-beer experience to start each sip. From there the flavors fall into some caramel and cocoa eventually finishing with some peppery flavors and a mild pepper warmth that lingers and grows after the swallow.

M - Thinnish medium body with a matching carbonation. Beer has a little life with a slightly foamy tingle forming in the mouth on each sip. Odd fruitiness that becomes more fruit punch/Hi-C/Hawaiian Punch like as I progress (slowly) thru the glass. Mild peppery burn into and past the finish.

O - This beer really isn't for me. This is just plain odd. The fruit punch aspect is disturbing, the cinnamon is overpowering and the peppers don't add much flavor, just heat/burn in the throat on the swallow. Maybe this is a bad bottle (I can only hope it is)...it was odd looking, smelling and tasting. Drainpour.

Bottle to tulip.

A - Medium brown; very slightly translucent. A small amount of cream coloured head formed on the pour and immediately disappeared.

S - Roast, spice and spicy chillies. Not much chocolate at all in the nose.

T - Roast, chocolate and chillies with a bit of a kick. Some cinnamon is present in the finish. The chillies completely dominate and drown out the other elements of the beer. I couldn't get through more than a few sips of this one.

M - Light body. Moderate to high carbonation.
