2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From notes. Tasted on 12/12/12 from a capped 22oz bottle with Curtis, and the Nashville crew. Pours hazy orange/amber with an average off-white head that leaves thin, bubbly lace. The nose is full of malty caramel with some chili pepper and cinnamon underlying. The flavor is sweet caramel malt up front, moving to cinnamon and chili pepper spice, pretty simple. The body is full and sticky with average carbonation and a long sweet caramel and spicy chili finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Oh dear, this beer didn’t work for me. Over a cloudy amber body, nose is green bell pepper, jalapeno, light strawberry, some fruity yeast and dough. Flavor is awash with simple Belgian amber notes with that lingering green jalapeno waxiness. It lacks a pleasing balance of flavors.

Bottle with Salmoniform for my first beer of my birthday (Nov, 11th) with the 11/11 vertical epic. Pours Amber with red hues, off white head. Aroma is strong figs, prunes, dark fruits, plums, vanilla, cinnamon. Taste has peppery heat, lots of dark Belgian esters, prunes, medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Overall, hmmmmm....

Poured from bottle to glass. Copper hue with creamy off white head. Aroma is straw, esters, peppercorn, earthy, prunes, tobacco. Mouthfeel is ok with a medium light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a spice astringentness. Overall this is an odd brew.
