Odysseyalien (71) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2012
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!

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of fruit, and some other hints, maybe some spices, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and a hint of hops with a nice bittersweet finish.

Version 2. Ah, fresh hops. This is really good. Nice sweetness hidden under a gentle but very present hop flavor. Nice carbonation that is a light body and lively but not intense. A bit overly cloudy.

Bottle. It poured a reddish/brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was of chiles, cinnamon, raisin and dark fruits. The taste was similar to the aroma with more chiles. malts and a spicy sweet finish.

650ml bottle cellared 4 years and shared by all during the family Christmas vertical with the 08/09/10/11/12. Thanks for the help, bro, in acquiring these. Dark reddish pour. Cinnamon, chiles in the nose. Taste leads with that but the main player turns out to be a bit more of an amber. Sweet, wit h the other presence around the edges. Chiles mellowed out over the time? 13.4

Mild roasted chili flavor in an amber ale. Uses Belgian yeast for slight banana after taste. Second tasting was a bit different. More roasted chili flavor and aroma. Not as much banana as before. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alex_leit (1582) - Minsk, BELARUS - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle 650 ml. 4 years old. Bronze-amber color with noisy cream foam. Aroma: pleasant,sweetness and port wine, malt, caramel, toffee, dried fruits, plums, raisins, cinnamon and other spices, light chilies. Taste: malt sweetness, port wine or sherry, caramel, toffee and dried fruits (figs, raisins, plums and apricots), spices, cinnamon. Finish rather dry with chilies and hop bitterness. Great brew, good balanced (thanks aging).

slowrunner77 (8991) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 7, 2015
old review - got lost when I transferred, apparently. This was one of my faves of the series. Chilli was light but present and the cinnamon spicing was just right.
