3.3
argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 20, 2013
22oz bottle. Medium beige head atop murky copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, cinnamon, some chile pepper, light candi sugar. Taste is moderately sweet, candi sugar, some orange, cinnamon, light pepper. Butterscotch creeps in as it warms. Medium body, low carbonation, alcohol fairly well masked.

2.4
BeerandBlues2 (14027) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear and sparkling mahogany with a large, frothy and creamy light tan head, long retention with light excellent lacing. Aroma is honey and caramel malt with notes of light toast and biscuit malt, dates and figs, cinnamon notes, huge fruity esters with some cooked banana notes and faint vanilla and peppery alcohol. Flavor is artificial sweetener and Belgian yeast esters, medium sweet malt, light spice/pepper, notes of cinnamon, and a sweet, near cloying finish. The flavor goes downhill after this initial impression, with warmth not helping at all. I am not sure what was meant here, but I hope this was not it. The closest thing I can come up with is dates topped with Sweet-N-Low to describe this - what a horrible mess. I suspect there are some Anaheim peppers in there because the flavor does finish slightly spicy, but the heavy residual sugar masks it. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

Rune (13760) - 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).

3.8
Desverger (13727) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle from Toft Vin, Copenhagen - dark amber brown coloured pour with beige head. Medium sweet malty aroma and taste, toasty, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, dried fruity and nutty, some cinnamon spice on the palate, good mouthfeel, warming dry finish.

3.9

3.5
j12601 (13304) - 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.

2.7
hopdog (13258) - 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.

3.6
bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2011
(Draught) Pours a clear copper body with a medium beige head. Aroma of dates, raisins, Peeps Easter candies, leather, Belgian yeast, cinnamon, banana, caramel, and rye. Flavor of dates, raisins, wood, cinnamon, mild chilies, banana, vanilla, and herbs.

4.1
slowrunner77 (13206) - 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.

3.4
Sammy (13013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 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.
