Mild roasted chili flavor in an amber ale. Uses Belgian yeast for slight banana after taste. Second tasting was a bit different. More roasted chili flavor and aroma. Not as much banana as before. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear reddish brown with big bubbly white head. Smell like chili right away. The cinnamon and chili is very easy to taste but fits in well with some brown sugar and floral hops. I think this is a very well done chili ale, hooray!

Great aroma on pour but left a terrible aftertaste almost like ink. A bit disappointing to me coming from the great Stone Brewery.

RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle to tulip glass poured a mahogany with orange hues, small off-white head, and good lacing. Strong aroma of chiles, clove, and hints of banana malts. First sip begins with toffee, raisin, banana bubblegum, raisin, followed by chile flavor and mild heat. The finish provides pleasant warming mouthfeel and slight spicy chile burn. Well balanced, smooth, and very enjoyable considering potentially overwhelming ingredients.

Bottle Brownish-red with a medium off-white head. Aroma is very sweet and malty, a distinct green pepper aroma from the Anaheims. Taste is medium sweet, mild bitter, and quite vegetal, with some spice and more of the Anaheim peppers. Finish is dry with more pepper coming through. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Meh.

I was kinda of caught in the middle on this one. It really didnít blow me away but I did enjoy it. The chilies donít make to much of an appearance here. They do show up in the end more and more as the chilies build up. Giving a slight burn. The beer is more cinnamon, cloves, and some banana. But even those flavors arenít to big. Itís a decent drinking beer. Nothing more and honestly donít see it getting much better in a year.

colinize (317) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Pours a ruby brown with little to no head. Malty sweet aroma with a little spice. This is a very smooth drinking beer. Light carbonation with a strong malt presence. The chili flavor is light and mostly comes through on the finish. A good beer but not 'epic'. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 Nut brown in color. Off white head in color. Good lacing. Nutty aroma. Cherry in the taste. Smooth finish. There is a slight creamy texture. Stone is a very good brewery and I will try another one in a heartbeat.

Poured a rich ruby red from a bomber bottle, with a very thin layer of yellowish foam. Aroma is heavy on spice and something close to overripe pumpkin/cinnamon. There is also a good bit of sweet dough. The taste is heavy on the cinnamon, a bit of spice and some belgian sourness. The chilies certainly stick around heavily on the aftertaste. The chili peppers, though present, are balanced out really well against what is expected of a belgian strong ale.
