Interesting spice (sweet cloves especially). thick mouthfeel. Light brown and cloudy in color. One taster said he tasted cinnamon.

On tap at Bad Apple, Chicago. Murky ruby with just a dusting of head. Medium bodied. Maybe the best chili beer Ive ever had; its a full, lasting flavor thats more than just a spicy overtone. Belgian base is a nice counterpoint, with over-ripe fruits and a hint of sweetness to start. The spice dominates the rootsy finish in a very nice way. Very well made. Not an instant favorite, but glad I had it.

Draft at mad mex willow grove. Pours a hazy gold with a slight head. Aroma is sweet and thin. Taste is very refreshing but not very Belgian. Cant taste the chiles.

Bomber from... somewhere. Pours the flanders red cinnamon deep amber color, decent amount of foam initially, but its thin in constitution and fades away within a couple of minutes, leaving a thin, persistent film on 75% of the beers surface. Aroma is all sweet malts, like candi sugar and cinnamon. The only pepper burn comes through literally as a burn to the insides of my nostrils. Taste is malt-forward, followed by a touch of the dark hint of heat from the Anaheims, with a resounding cinnamon and red-hots finish. Funny, hadnt thought of that candy in years, but here it sort of is in beer form. Cool. Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation and a long finish. Nice beer. Not great, and not as good as most of the others, but still fun and high quality.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy mahogany red with a short lived off white head. Aroma is malty and fruity. Flavor is big and malty with a spicy background with just the right bite. The finish leaves a little burn in the throat from the chiles. This would go well with flame grilled red meat (especially bison). TIP: Let this beer warm a little after pouring to bring out the full flavors.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - NOV 13, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 opened on 12-12-12, cellared at exactly 55 degrees since its release. Much more malt, and Belgian yeast aroma. Hints of a cherry cinnamon aroma. More of those in the flavor. A little touch of heat and pepper flavor, but much more malt and Belgian character than when it was fresh. Has aged nicely though. This beer pours a dark copper. Aroma of malt, and almost fruit. It isnt as harsh in the mouth as one might think, but it isnt a smooth beer either. Malty taste, but the peppers really shine through without being abrasive. It hides the 9.4% well, until you get about halfway through. Should be an interesting beer as it ages.

Dark copper color. The chiles dominate the nose. The palate is a balance o sweetish malt, the anaheims and some hops. The cinammon just disappears among everything else. Very good.

stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2012
On tap at bradys. Ruby pour. Strong malty aroma, english yeast. Strangely fruity, tart, dark malts. Strong. Strange. I didnt love this. Probably least favorite stone beer so far.

Tinco (615) - Linkping, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2012
Clear amber red color. Small off white head. Aroma is spicy, sweet candy, banana, bubblegum. Taste is banana, spicy belgian yeast, maybe a slight heat from the chilies but not much.

Hoprider (614) - DENMARK - MAY 1, 2016
Pours mahogony deep red. Light film of foam N: vinous and with hints of peppers T: sweet old ale taste. Great old Dusty caramel. Perfect spice, coffee aftertaste getting dry and slightly bitter in the finish
