Pour was chestnut brown with an off white colored head. Aroma of spices and fruits and bread. Flavor was the same with strong bready bitterness amd ginger type notes finishing with definite peppers, coming off almost medicinal. Mouthfeel was moderate to full with light carbonation. Meh, not a huge stone Belgian fan, although normally liking stone!

Poured from a tap. Very sticky head. Dark brown/reddish pour. Chilies and a weird kinda ginger, medicinal nose. No hint of cinnamon. Flavor is more medicine and weird ginger. Not sure how one would age this. Not my style.

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of metal, alcohol, banana, clove, orange peel. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic, metallic. Generic, boozy, and quite metallic.

hmm.. .. Pours a deep tree copper .. . medium head, medium lacing .. . cinnamon, monkey wrench, spice, and very light pepper skin .. . way to much cinnamon, derails this completely. . . abv is masked quite well, until it hits the belly .. . probably the weakest of the vertical series, but if you like spice in beer, you might be odd enough to like this . . . . You accuse me of everything around here! "Who put slippers in the dishwasher?" "Who threw a cane at the TV?" "Who fell into the china hutch?

[4411-20120504] 1pt6floz bottle. Spicy paprika allspice aroma has a bit of toilet bowl cleaner. Slightly hazy, amber orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Spicy allspice cleaner flavour. Medium body. Weird, just not that into it. (6/3/5-/3-/10) 2.7
Overheard: "Have some bottom juice." "I beg your pardon?"

More cinnamon than chiles, but chiles definitely present in the slight bite at end of sip. This beer didnít do much for me and was fairly unremarkable.

22oz bottle (had this during a full 020202 - 121212 vertical). The description alone on this does not sound appetizing to me. Cinnamon, chilies, yeast, and some brown sugar.

Får lite associationer till ingefära. Att det skulle vara chili i känner man inte ett smack av

Had this at a tasting. Couldnít taste any of the cinnamon or chilies. Like the 12.12.12 this one was just off from Stoneís normal God status.

Pours a dark reddish-amber with a modest but tenacious off-white head. Nose is fairly typical for a strong darker belgian (brown and candied sugar, fruit, yeast, light floral hops) with just a hint of spice and the much-discussed pepper. Flavor is a little weird and earthy; front is abrasively funky but without much depth or character. Backside is quite bland and difficult to describe, frankly, but Iím not a fan of it. Neither the chilis nor the belgian qualities of the beer come out much on the flavor, instead leaning toward a boozy, bland herbal ale. This is probably the most disappointing brew Iíve had from Stone.
