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

Draft at Blue monk. Pours a reddish brown with an off white head that is very frothy. Sweet Aroma with brown sugar and some spice. Tastes sweet up front with a lot of brown sugar and belgian yeast. Not too spicy, but theres definitely something going on.

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.

Scubatrip (604) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2012
From the bottle, pours a deep dark red with an off-white foamy head, nice lacing. Deep sweet malty aroma with hints of alcohol and a bit of yeast. Heavy flavor, earthy, dark malt, some cherries, alcohol, cant find the cinnamon. Quality as always from these guys.

dogfishho (599) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2012
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

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
