ThreeCats (586) - ISRAEL - MAY 3, 2013
Hazy amber with a nice head. Aroma of alcohol and oxidation, raisins, caramel. Taste of lots of the same, very raisiny, some mango, nose that lasts into palate.

stangger (583) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2012
On tap at bradys. Ruby pour. Strong malty aroma, english yeast. Strangely fruity, tart, dark malts. Strong. Strange. I didn’t love this. Probably least favorite stone beer so far.

ADfan (578) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Deep reddish brown color in the glass. It has an aroma of roasted malts and spices. The flavor is smooth with banana’s and figs. The spice from the chile comes on the back end. Tasty beer. Definitely caught me off guard but it was good.

Tinco (568) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2012
Clear amber red color. Small off white head. Aroma is spicy, sweet candy, banana, bubblegum. Taste is banana, spicy belgian yeast, maybe a slight heat from the chilies but not much.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2012
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, aren’t they?

thooper41 (548) - BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2011
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 doesn’t taste all that Belgian.

cooplander (543) - Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2012
brown color, aroma of cinnamon and chillies, same flavors with caramel, slight roast, dark fruits, candy sweetness, interesting and worth a try

docsteigs (528) - Texas, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours red-brown-brown with nice creamy head. Aroma of sweet malt with mild cinnamon. Taste is smooth - nice Belgian ale with notes of banana - flavor of pepper minimal w no heat and cinnamon presence could have been subtler. Good brew without major deficits; OK for Stone.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Nice amber color with a medium white head. STRONG chili and brown sugar aroma. Strong plastic, chili and brown sugar flavor. I keep trying to like this, but I really don’t. I’m afraid this is my first Stone drain pour. :-(

brigg (517) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2011
(bottle) Chestnut body with a medium tan head. Rich aroma of roasted malt, lots of yeast, spice (pepper, clove), banana, bread, mild alcohol. Full-bodied, smooth, soft carbonation. Sweet, nice roasted malt flavor, noticeable alcohol, cinnamon, a little sourness (or is it the chilies?) that stays mostly under the radar.
