On draught at Petrol Station. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium off-white head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit and spices. Medium to full body with flavors of caramel malt, dark fruit, herbs and subtle chili pepper. The finish is fruity and malty, with the chili pepper all but nonexistent, possibly due to the age? Pretty good regardless. crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2012
It pours a reddish brown with a huge slightly sandy head that leaves some nice lacing.
The smell is good but the Belgian yest is far too upfront. Underneath the huge blast of yeast is some nice spiciness from the chilies and cinnamon.
The flavor is better. Nice chili flavor though not a ton of spiciness which would have been nice. It tastes like a hot pepper candy with a hint of sugar and fruit. The yeast s a bit more dialed-down in the flavor but still plagues it.
They messed up with the yeast. Rune (12738) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 19, 2015
Poured from a 650ml bottle. Bubbly fawn-coloured head over a bright mahogany coloured body. Drying aroma of herbs, old books and caramel. Rather strange and unusual taste of bread, spices, wood and, in fact, beetroot joined by some jammy fruits as well. Drying end with warming alcohol. Quite well bodied. Not sure what to make of it, anyway, not a great one (Tromsø 17.04.2015). hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2012
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. Camons (12440) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2012

Big Cinnamon beer, thanks Jason. Spicy, with heat in the finish. Brown with big lace. Interesting but also some astringency. OK drinkability, unique, but perhaps not the best of the vertical series. Pinball (12145) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
clear hazy brown, smooth white head.
aroma is malts, cinnamon, faint peppery
flavor is chilli, peppery note, malts, fruity notes, pretty well tasting. slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 7, 2015
old review - got lost when I transferred, apparently. This was one of my faves of the series. Chilli was light but present and the cinnamon spicing was just right. j12601 (11573) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a thin white to beige head. Soft chili on the nose, pepper fruit, hints of cinnamon and yeast. Malt, a touch of bitterness right away. Cinnamon, toast and very faint pepper fruit. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 8, 2012
650 ml bottle at Konttori, Tampere, Finland.
Clear reddish deep mahogany colour with small off-white head.
Ginger, malt, spices and mild fruitiness in refreshing aroma.
Ginger, chili, vegetable, spices and hops in balanced flavour. Alcohol warmth. Interesting and tasty.
