~Bready banana aroma and perfumy clove spiciness, light green chilies ~Pours a murky reddish brown with small lasting yellowish head. ~Can taste the chili flavor, but it isn’t hot. Peppery spiciness, clove, Yeast phenolics are fairly strong. ~Med body, med high CO2, harsh spicy finish, bitter lingering is not pleasant. ~Not really a fan of the yeast on this one. Too spicy and some harshness. Interesting beer. On border of being something good and something I don’t like..

22 oz bomber, this thing is a mess. The nose is pretty good, actually smells pretty good. Taste is way too much of the chili. This is certainly my least favorite of the vertical epic series.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of joergen. Pours a hazy amber with a beige, lacing head. Distinct dusty chili aroma atop some sweet caramel AND cinnamon. Solid body, sweet caramel and a little roastiness with a malt bitter finish. Sweet caramel and again cinnamon. What an odd mixture - why? 200312

rlgk (10061) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle. Amber/copper beer, small offwhite head. Cinnamon aroma, sweetish, the spices kinda kills the rest of the aroma. Cinnamon flavor, chilli, yeasty, some fruits. Very odd.

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

drank 1/22/12 from notes. Good foamy head, amber red color, smell citris-y, taste is bitter but not strong despite 9.4! But it was too bitter for me.

(Draught) cloudy deep ruby-amber, little head. Nose is sweet, fruity, spicy chilies, pepper jam. Very underwhelmed by the taste, spicy, celery, raw grain, cocoa, dark fruit, well carbonated, lightly spicy linger.

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.

Bottle sample at a Vertical Epic tasting at Mastikim. Thanks Dagan. Pours murky amber with tan film. Grass, chili, capsicum aroma, red pepper, sweet, slightly smokey and spicy taste. Light body, soft fizz, long sweet-ish finish. Alright but doesn’t go to 11.

Bottle shared at a local tasting, thanks Brad! Pours a clear dark brown with a really thin head, the aroma has a subtle amount of spice with some yeast mixed in too, the flavor has a yeasty front end with a spiced finish, light mouthfeel, was pretty meh.
