Dogbrick (11641) - 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.

crossovert (11424) - 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.

Rune (11372) - 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).

kermis (11263) - Where the wild whales are, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle from bier Koning. Hazy brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma is overwhelmed by cinnamon and spice. Flavour also has the same qualities with some malt and a pepper finish. Interesting to try, but I wouldn’t go back for another bottle.

Sammy (11248) - 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.

rosenbergh (10696) - 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.

hopscotch (10657) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2012
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.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with medium creamy beige head that leaves sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a bready malt with cinammon and spice. Medium mouthfeel with a sugary malt with light spice and cinammon with a nice lingering sweet finish. A good Belgian strong ale from Stone.
