Pours a reddish brown with yellow hues on the outside. Thin head with good lacing. The aroma is full of typical Belgian sugars and yeast. The flavor is rather ordinary, but there are cool spices... cinnamon, maybe anise, that really make the beer pop. I found it to be more enjoyable than several others in the vertical line.

mikesaum (596) - Newark, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Pours dark amber with khaki head, aroma is strong belgian yeast and a bit of cinnamon, no chiles, the yeast is spicy in aroma. Taste is complex, semi sweet with a deep rich flavor, nice belgian spice from the yeast, some heat from the chilies and a dash of cinnamon, abv is masked well, very good, would love to see how this ages

ADfan (594) - 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.

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.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Bomber pours dark copper with a nice rocky khaki.head. aromas of cinnamon some chillies some funky yeast and heavy malts also candied sugars and a bit boozy. Flavor is mixed sweet and funky from the chillies also yeast comes through. Body is medium full and finish leaves a weird chilly flavor

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.

Tinco (572) - 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?
