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 thereís definitely something going on.

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

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 (555) - 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.

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.

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. :-(
