Deep brown relatively opaque, white head, great lacing and retention... definitely has some chili, not offensive, but spicy, very apparent in the flavor, belgian yeasts, some fruits, some spice, but i dont get any cinnamon... aroma also has the chilis, some spice... like a decent double that gets muddled an addition, in this case chilis, quite interesting... medium full bodied..

NachlamSie (2809) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bottle from McScrooges. Pours dark brown with a small head. The aroma is a bit much. I can tell this is going to be a sticky son of a bitch. Cloves and bubblegum are huge in the aroma along with a blast of cinnamon. The first sip is thick. Spices and sticky esters are ruining my palate. The finish is too much to handle between the overdone Belgian yeast and the boat loads of cinnamon. Tone it down guys, tone it down. And btw, I can’t tell there are chilies anywhere in this for all the cinnamon.

IrishBoy (3888) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bomber from Imbibe Wine. Nose is cinnamon, cloves, candi sugar, and a very light vegetal chilie note. Clear rust copper with a medium beige head. Flavor is lightly peppery, lightly sweet, caramel, and cinnamon. Finishes with light peppery warmth.

DialSquare (2919) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bomber from Liquor Loft. Brown pour with a thin light tan head. Belgiany aroma of banana, yeast and spice. Tastes are vegetal - chilis, spices, smoke, leather, clove, pepper, cinnamon, and caramel malts. Everything kinda flies at you at once leaving a yeasty metallic quality in the finish. Strange brew... not totally unpleasant, just strange.

Bottle to tulip. Dark copper pour with medium beige head. slight cinnamon aromas with a bit of earthiness. Not bad. i think I need to reflect on this beer a little more

smaynard6000 (661) - Apopka, Florida, USA - NOV 24, 2011
On tap at O’Niell’s. Dark red with small frothy off-white head, significant lacing. Aroma is average caramel malt and hoppy. Somewhat spicy flavor with some booziness. Medium bodied with sticky mouthfeel. This was enjoyable.

bottle. clear ruby under a large, foamy beige head. grassy, herb garden, earthy, green pepper nose. flavor is mildly spicy with chillies but more herbal like green bell peppers and fresh grass. even chives sometimes. light bodied. the 9.4% is well hidden. what a surprise. i never saw this coming from stone. the pepper addition is well done, especially with the nicely sweetened malt backbone.

PorterPounder (5709) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, bubbly-beady off-white head, light lacing. Aroma is slightly muddled - some light cinnamon, a hint of pears. Bold flavor, fruit forward - pick up some nectarine sweetness, some caramel nuttiness, and just a hint of the advertised peppers. Peppers compliment - do not overpower or distract. Mouthfeel is sufficiently sticky

ddemmingjr (721) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Excited to give this a try. pours clear amber, off white head that fades quickly. Clove, banana, typical Tripel nose with Belgian yeast and then that distinctive additional cinnamon, spicy chili vegetable notes on the nose. bready malts, esters, spiciness that is unique. medium carbonation, syrupy texture and stickiness on the lips. dry, astringent long finish. interesting but not my thing.

TheBeerGod (5341) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle. Mahogany with a short, foamy tan head. Strong yeast, herbal notes, caramel, sweet malt, dried fruit, and spices in the aroma. Taste is herbal notes, soft floral hops, spices, caramel, dusty yeast, sweet malt, soft grains, light cinnamon and fruit notes. Soft heat from the chilies and a prickly, bubbly carbonation. Medium bodied, overall. Ends with more spiciness, dusty yeast, caramel, soft cinnamon, grains, big yeast notes, floral hops and dried fruit.
