Brownish-red with a medium off-white head. Aroma is very sweet and malty, a distinct green pepper aroma from the Anaheims. Taste is medium sweet, mild bitter, and quite vegetal, with some spice and more of the Anaheim peppers. Finish is dry with more pepper coming through.

22 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount into a Duvel tulip. Amber and hazy with a small head. Aroma and flavor of light pepper, cinnamon, veggie, fruity esters, yeast, toasted malts and spices. It was OK.

Pours a hazy reddish brown with an off white head and lacing. It has a nice aroma of chiles, cinnamon, raisin and other dark fruit notes. The flavor is spicy chiles and sweet malt up front leading to a spicy sweet finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

11.11.2013. 22 oz. bottle opened 2 years after release. Pours deep copper with a small tan head. Sweet fruity aromas with malt and spice. The peppers still show though, but the cinnamon is gone which is great in my book. For a beer this old, mine held up pretty good and not as flat as I had expected.

Happy 11.11, the time has come to clear space in my cellar & drink this bottle of Stone’s Vertical Epic 11.11 I got it from Asahiya, 9.4%. Served in a Trappist glass, a beautiful mellow amber brown pour with a beige head. The aroma is malty sweet with some fruity notes of figs & chili heat. The taste is malty, nutty, sweet, figs, plums & a mild chili heat in the finish. This was made with cinnamon but I don’t pick up on that at all. A nice Belgian with some heat from the booze & the Anaheim chilies! I think I agree with others, it isn’t aging that well but is still ok.

Bottle - this was aged, but it has completely lost the chile heat or cinnamon character. I agree with the brother, meh.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle from Brusin’ Ales. Pours brown wih a thin khaki head. Has a slight pepper note on the note. Has some roasted pepper notes on the tongue but they’re faint. Hides its alcohol well. Did not exactly benefit by aging. Eh!

Bottle. I had this in 10/13 so it had been cellared properly for a while. I was not a huge fan of this brew. The chiles gave it an off flavor i think.

Pours a burn amber color with off white head. Malt, chili, yeast and spice aroma. Yeast, chili, spice and malt flavors. Medium body and astringent chili finish. Can’t say i’m a fan.
