Hazy red/brown pour with a white head sweet malt aromas with cinnamon and subtle pepper notes. Flavor is similar with the pepper character being just enough to add some nice complexity to the beer. Abv is well-hidden. This one was very easy to drink. Aged very well. Props to StFun for the bottle!

Lots of credit to make a beer this far out of the box, but it doesn’t work for me. The Belgian Strong Ale community is littered with the remains of those that don’t rise to the top, and although most don’t work due to compromised ingredients, this doesn’t because of the actual ingredients. Nice try.

Vignale (2850) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2013
Flaska delad hos Petrus. BBD feb-14. Väldigt kryddig doft där enskilda kryddor är svåra att plocka ut. Chilin är väl integrerad, kanelen likaså. REjäl kropp med viss toffeesötma och lite åt dubbelhållet. Grönpeppar, grön och röd chili med lite sträv men ganska rund hetta, kanel, nejlikor, muskot, örter, gräs, lite sträv pepprig beska. Lite som att dricka en överkryddad mjuk pepparkaka. Hur som helst riktigt god, men kropp är kanske lite platt för att bära alla kryddor.

A: cherry red with a finger of transient yellow foam. Spotty lace.Excellent clarity. S: cloves, bananas, chillies, cinnamon, just enough chili to make me interested. T: tastes like a Belgian tripel with cinnamon and chili essence. Wrong yeast for this beer. M: medium bodied with Smooth velvet carb. O: meh. Cool idea. Want less yeast, more chili. Serving type: bottle 11-11-2011

Bomber. Nose is sweet with some yeast to start but really takes on the shape of fresh, meaty green chillies. Some mild toffee/caramel malt character, approaching a dubbel. Deep orange brown that settles into a murky chestnut brown, a large rocky and creamy tan head, oily on the sides of the glass and collapses much more quickly than expected. Taste lightly sweet, not really bitter at all, slightly-built toffee and yeast character as mentioned before, with mild Anaheim chillies that don’t burn in the mouth and are only felt in the chest if one moves too rashly. A very interesting combination of flavors, and not really clashing at all, as I had expected; aided by restraint in chili proportioning, and that the flavor they give is really hearty/delicious. Full but flattish body, malt character goes down straight, hops are as hidden as the (impressively hidden) alcohol. Brown sugar? Aftertaste smacks of sticky Munich with extra melanoidin development. Smooth, clean. On the whole, this is a little bland compared to its brothers, or perhaps overly mild, but dignified and drinks dangerously easily.

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.
