Draft… Pours a clear, dark, deep Longhorn-orange with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Fantastic, creamy retention. The bouquet is a melange of banana and toffee with whispers of chili pepper and clove. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced and presents notes of banana and light toffee. Finishes crisp, spicy and lightly sweet with lingering mineral bitterness.

Dogbrick (10422) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2014
On draught at Petrol Station. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit and spices. Medium to full body with flavors of caramel malt, dark fruit, herbs and subtle chili pepper. The finish is fruity and malty, with the chili pepper all but nonexistent, possibly due to the age? Pretty good regardless.

Sammy (10327) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2012
Big Cinnamon beer, thanks Jason. Spicy, with heat in the finish. Brown with big lace. Interesting but also some astringency. OK drinkability, unique, but perhaps not the best of the vertical series.

crossovert (10314) - Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2012
650ml bottle. It pours a reddish brown with a huge slightly sandy head that leaves some nice lacing. The smell is good but the Belgian yest is far too upfront. Underneath the huge blast of yeast is some nice spiciness from the chilies and cinnamon. The flavor is better. Nice chili flavor though not a ton of spiciness which would have been nice. It tastes like a hot pepper candy with a hint of sugar and fruit. The yeast s a bit more dialed-down in the flavor but still plagues it. They messed up with the yeast.

adnielsen (10312) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark amber brown appearance with a small light brown head. Wow- actually pretty spicy chili, spicy cinnamon, mild veggie, toasty malty aroma. Toasty caramel malty, floral hoppy, green veggie, moderate chili pepper, light cinnamon, Belgian yeasty, sickly sugary flavor with some of the chili burn on the finish. A little too much veggie flavor for my taste. Actually, I’m not all that impressed by the flavor- kind of a bland, sugary malty flavor with some spices and green veggies.

Rune (10006) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 19, 2015
Poured from a 650ml bottle. Bubbly fawn-coloured head over a bright mahogany coloured body. Drying aroma of herbs, old books and caramel. Rather strange and unusual taste of bread, spices, wood and, in fact, beetroot joined by some jammy fruits as well. Drying end with warming alcohol. Quite well bodied. Not sure what to make of it, anyway, not a great one (Tromsø 17.04.2015).

Ferris (9806) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle - Malty toffee nose with chili peppers. Cloudy amber with a thin head. The flavor was dominated by chili powder, which tasted like it was dumped in. I found this beer to be out of balance and almost undrinkable with the way the pepper tasted. This may be due to the age of the beer.

DSG (9563) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle sample at a Vertical Epic tasting at Mastikim. Thanks troubles/avrashi. Hazy amber. Aroma of malt, yeast, caraway bread, spices (chili pepper) and a bit of alcohol. Sweetish malty flavor with some chili peppers spiciness, caramel and a bit of fruitiness. Medium-bodied.

rosenbergh (9510) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2012
650 ml bottle at Konttori, Tampere, Finland.
Clear reddish deep mahogany colour with small off-white head. Ginger, malt, spices and mild fruitiness in refreshing aroma. Ginger, chili, vegetable, spices and hops in balanced flavour. Alcohol warmth. Interesting and tasty.

DrSilverworm (9465) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2013
22oz bottle, shared. Big body. Lighter, crisp carbonation. Mildly sticky finish. Mostly clear darker red color. Minimal off-white head. Good chile nose, but taste is more astringently sweet. Light chile kick, but I’m not sure that it works with the candy sweetness of this brew, though. Light chile and belgian candi sugar aroma. Decent, wish it was less sweet, though, with more pronounced chile
