4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Blind Tiger Ale house, Manhattan 12-13-12.
I was surprised that i liked this as much as i do. Sipping on it now at the BT, the cinnamon flavor is slightly more pronounced on my palate than the chiles. I do taste the chiles though as subtle as they might be. Nice lacing forming in the tulip in front of me as this delicious gem slowly slips away.
A kind of Bayou mud-like appearance in the tulip...thin...difficult to say what color in the low light here.
Gosh...another Stone to add to the rotation. Quite delicious. If you like flavorful beers, and I’m a big barleywine lover, you might like this. I do!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark clear copper pour with beige head, quickly dissipating. Aroma of dark fruit, spices, cinnamon, honey and yeast. Taste of caramel, malts, yeast, dark fruit, cinnamon, iced tea and faint chili heat on the finish. Full bodied, nice carbonation, long hop syrupy finish. Tasty and interesting but became cloying by the end of the bottle.
