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.

i was scared to buy this, but the outlandish things added to this beer really turned out to be balanced into a nice amber malt and belgian yeast strain. a good beer...

Pours dark amber worth beige ish head. The aroma is musty and grainy with a light yeasty fruit. The taste is rich and heavy on barley with a light Belgian strong ale character. There is an up front chili spice with an intense cinnamon to cover the strong grainy beer. There is a little Belgian fruity taste, apples and sort of a cherry tint. Overall interesting, not amazing but unique.

Beer is clear medium brown with a light tan head. Aromas are sweet banana and spicy from the cinnamon. Taste is sweet Belgian yeast and cinnamon on the front end, but as the flavor lingers some warmth from the chilies, and some vegetable taste. The bitterness also comes in on the back end. Body is medium. ABV is disguised well. A good one in this great series.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with thick tan head. Aroma of bananas, spices, chilies, and dark fruits. Taste of bread, spice, and Belgian yeast. Medium mouthfeel. Reminds of a Dubbel . Kind of bland. Zero chilies or cinnamon in the flavor. Just OK.

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.
