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 (940) - 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 (7062) - 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 (795) - 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.

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.

RSRIZZO (1933) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2011
22oz bottle poured into a Tulip at 41°. Color is a murky amber with mellow carbonation and a small tan head. Aroma of caramel and green chilies. It has a medium body that gives a crisp mouth feel. Flavor comes in with toffee and a touch of yeast, then the chili pepper shows followed by a mild bitterness. After taste is an odd sweetness mixed with more chili. Overall its a very odd flavor blend, the mix of chilies and sweet just doesn’t work for me.

drfabulous (6184) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 23, 2011
22 ounce from Good Foods. Caramel. Burnt sugar. Sweetness. Followed by the slightest pepper taste. Dominant yeast aroma and taste. I’m glad the pepper is subdued.

Ratman197 (12826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bomber poured a clear reddish amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of burnt carmel, cinnamon and light chilies. Palate was medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of burnt carmel, cinnamon, toffee and a hint of chilies with a crisp lingering burnt carmel finish.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Pours a deep clear amber color with a moderate bubbly khaki colored head. Nose is sweet malts and fruity, pears baked apples with light hints of cinnamon spice. Flavor is complex and interesting with sweet malts and almost strawberry like fruits, apparent Belgian yeast and some cinnamon spice. Not bad.
