Bottle from Triangle grocery. It very well may have been purchased on 11/11/11. Aroma-is banana, slight clove, nuts, sunflower seeds, a lil peppery. Flavor: Sweet flavor, but relatively dry mouth feel-good. Begins with some fruitiness-cherry, and yeasty. Nicely phenolic in the finish. Dries out quite a bit in the finish-some caramel nuttiness there too. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Bomber. Cloudy reddish orange color with a tan head that lasts a minute. Chile peppers are prevalent. Aroma is yeast. I like the idea of a chile pepper beer but not as good as chipotle from rogue.

Bottle consumed on 11/11/11 moFO. clear ruby pour with nice white head. Very pretty beer. Aroma has some Belgian presence with some cloves, spicy fruit esters and a touch of cinnamon. Taste is sweet at first then i get a hint if chilies with a little bit of cinnamon and a mid bitterness. Lots going on here....very unique but couldn’t drink it alot.

Rated based on notes taken 27 Dec 2011 -- Very good. Much better than the description lead me to believe. Steasy66 (1158) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Deep amber. 2 inch tan head. Malty aroma. Strange acidity with some boozy notes. Very nice beer, quite malty.

The pour is a hazy, crimson ruby color with a moderate, off-white, pillowy head which settles to a thin layer and leaves drippy, Belgian lace. The nose is very faintly cinnamon, very mild chile peppers, a thyme or rosemary herb note, light esters, and some bready yeast. The flavor is very similar with chile pepper notes and mild cinnamon, still a prominent rosemary note, estery, bready, and subtle toasted caramel. The palate is lively, more than medium, and velvety. The finish is herbal with a peppery bitterness, rosemary still, and cinnamon on the tongue. I guess it is something I have not tried yet which is always something to expect from Stone but fairly boring for Stone standards. The ABV was almost negligible for a nearly 10% beer. I expect more from this brewery. Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bomber. Pours clear dark red and orange with a foamy 1.5-finger orange and beige head. Aromas of Belgian yeast and candi sugar, smoky chilies, banana and esters, and some spices. The flavor is cinnamon and chili, smoky chilies and earth/dirt, Belgian yeast, and sugar. The finish is slightly spicy with some earthy notes. Medium carbonation and body. Good; different, but the smoky/spicy notes work here.  Bricks (1150) - Delaware, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Muddy golden brown unfiltered appearance with an off-white small head. Smells fruity, almost like bananas with a touch of spiciness (pepper?) and maybe a little smokiness. Initial taste of malt, alcohol and peppers -- it actually has some "heat". Some good hops in there amplifies it too. Fairly complex. A little abrasive in the mouth. It’s like a cajun style Belgian. Different. Nice. TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
Pours clear copper slight carbonation and thin head. Nose is candy/cinnamon. Sweet fruit, cinnamon and strong spiciness. Has a jalepeno-pepper like afterburn in the finish. taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Amber with a full head. Lots of spices and flowery sweetness along with the feel and flavor of honey or caramel. Surprisingly nice given that the style is not one of my faves.
