brigg (593) - 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.

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

thooper41 (556) - 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 doesnít taste all that Belgian.

TheRealMGD (552) - 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, arenít they?

pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Aroma: Very spicy--cinnamon and clove--almost like a cookie. Appearance: Dark amber, cloudy, with minimal head. Palate: Medium body, slick texture, long spiced finish, minimal carb Taste: Medium sweetness all the way through Overall: Nice, deceptively sweet and spiced beer. Not getting a lot of the chiles, but itís still quite solid.

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 (542) - 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 donít. Iím afraid this is my first Stone drain pour. :-(

stevencon (518) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle and draft. Clear amber pour. Spicy pepper and basil. Slight burn on the nostrils from the pepper. Habanero? Thin body pepper more present in bottle. I like it better than others but its still meh.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 Draught. Pours a dark clear amber. Smells faintly of black currant and hops. Tastes of peppers, caramel and dark fruits. Finishes slightly spicy and bitter. Not well balanced. Medium bodied.
