On tap. Pours very dark with brown head. Good roasty aroma with malt, cinnamon and was hard but I got a little bit of the chilli peppers. Taste was very strong and surprising with a light bitter tone.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Muddy golden brown unfiltered appearance with an off-white small head. Smells fruity, almost like bananas with a touch of spiciness (pepper?) and maybe a little smokiness. Initial taste of malt, alcohol and peppers -- it actually has some "heat". Some good hops in there amplifies it too. Fairly complex. A little abrasive in the mouth. Itís like a cajun style Belgian. Different. Nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from 99. Cloudy amber pour with an off-white head leaving moderate lace. Spicy, malty, chili nose. Medium body and carbonation. Belgian malts, burnt toast, roasted pepper and toffee. Finish is long with cheddar, chilis, cinnamon, tobacco and some soy umami. Probably not my favorite VE, but they are always interesting, arenít they?

22oz bottle: Appearance is dark brown with creamy off white head that lasts. Aroma is of cinnamon and raisins. Flavor is balanced nicely with again cinnamon and raisins along with a fair amount of malt. Decent brew but doesnít taste all that Belgian.

Deep reddish brown color in the glass. It has an aroma of roasted malts and spices. The flavor is smooth with bananaís and figs. The spice from the chile comes on the back end. Tasty beer. Definitely caught me off guard but it was good.
