Poured on a Trappist glass. the aroma its very quite, very little notes of cinnamon, clove and some alcohol but not much going on. Small white head, brown gold appearance to a very clean and clear body. Up front the cinnamon its the first guest and an even stronger sour taste of the flanders yeast and at the back strong clove. I think the mouth feel its the best about this beer its solid, and oily. Over all a bit better than expected I was a bit disappointed with the lack of aroma on this one but the overall mouth feel gain some of my respect for it but considering that kind of beer and the $$$ for it not bad.

Mastelefish (80) - North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Poured a dark red brown from a bottle. Thick head with a good bit of lacing. Smell does not let on cinnamon taste and is rather boozy. Tastes like a cider and strong ale combined. Cinnamon after taste. Not bad overall.

Lovely aroma to this beer. Cherries, a bit of licorice, cinnamon come through. A great appearance. Crimson color with a good head and nice lacing. Nice taste! A bit on the sweeter side. Sour cherries, a bit of bitterness. The heat of the chillies come through nicely at the end but I was hoping for a bit more of. Cinnamon is naturally there and balances it out well. Good beer! Savoring every sip! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle a medium brown with a tan head. Aroma of cinnamon, booze, slight floral and clove notes. Tastes of cinnamon, a bit of heat from the chiles, some floral, and malt.

NateBarnett (69) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Pours dark red-brown. Smells sweet with light fruits, banana and spices. Taste is very sweet with fruity tartness and spicy cloves. Add a hint of chili to the mix and youíve got this bizarre concoction... Unfortunately, Iím not digginí it.

Kind of a different Belgium strong with an odd finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Skakapa (52) - MalmŲ, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2012
Dark amber, thick yellowy crown. Fruity floral aroma with notes of red cinnamon, more like candy than the actual bark. Green chili aftertaste. I look forward to seeing this age.

tambrico (50) - New York, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Pours a murky brown color with a quickly fading tan head. Smells of deep earthy notes that I canít really pinpoint because I donít have such a sophisticated nose just yet. Perhaps some chocolate or coffee malts in the aroma as well. Taste is threefold; the bitterness hits right away but rolls on smooth - almost reminds me of the Old Guardian Barley Wine in a strange way. The bitterness fades and the taste of the peppers comes through. I didnít LOVE the taste of the peppers, but I could appreciate it for what it is. The finish is warm with the alcohol peeking through. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy. Overall, interesting beer. I like its uniqueness, but I didnít think its features were as unique as the 12.12.12. which I think I like better.

22 oz bottle. Pours a dark amber, thin head that dissipated quickly. No real lacing, though Iíll note that Iíve had this on draft and it had a much better head/lacing. Spicy aroma - the chiles come through nicely. First sip tastes like a belgian amber, hint of cinnamon, light bitterness and little hop aftertaste. As it warms up, the chiles come through, adding a somewhat salty, "olive brine" flavor. I missed out on the early vertical releases, but this is by far my favorite thus far. Very unusual.
