brown color, aroma of cinnamon and chillies, same flavors with caramel, slight roast, dark fruits, candy sweetness, interesting and worth a try

Pours red-brown-brown with nice creamy head. Aroma of sweet malt with mild cinnamon. Taste is smooth - nice Belgian ale with notes of banana - flavor of pepper minimal w no heat and cinnamon presence could have been subtler. Good brew without major deficits; OK for Stone.

Nice amber color with a medium white head. STRONG chili and brown sugar aroma. Strong plastic, chili and brown sugar flavor. I keep trying to like this, but I really don’t. I’m afraid this is my first Stone drain pour. :-(

Bottle and draft. Clear amber pour. Spicy pepper and basil. Slight burn on the nostrils from the pepper. Habanero? Thin body pepper more present in bottle. I like it better than others but its still meh.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 1, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 Draught. Pours a dark clear amber. Smells faintly of black currant and hops. Tastes of peppers, caramel and dark fruits. Finishes slightly spicy and bitter. Not well balanced. Medium bodied.

Pours a hazy medium re with minimal head. Aroma of light spices and brown sugar - and maybe a bit of banana. Lightly sweet taste in the mouth, and the carbonation explodes in small bubbles when the beer hits the tongue. There is a bit of a sour or bitter flavor as well. Fairly heavy flavor and the beer itself feels a bit heavy in the mouth.

3.4
benpickens (512) - Camarillo, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
Pours a clear amber with light carb and massive head that holds well. Sweet aromas of fruit, sugar, and chilies? Interesting finish: sweet then something then sweet... good but not great.

Interesting combination... belgian ale meets southwest cuisine. And it works. It packs a wallop, and has the same rich palate as their Double Bastard ale, but there is also a lot of complexity and subtlety. The cinnamon and anaheim peppers are used sparingly, and they mingle quite well with the belgian yeast. The aroma is weaker than I expected. Overall, Stone has really out-dogfished the competition with this innovative brew.

On tap at Kellehers in Peoria. Definitely some interesting aspects to this one, with the chile spice coming through decently, but the cinnamon fails to make a strong impression, at least for me. Bubblegum is prominent in the nose, along with sweet caramel candy, yeasty grains, minor booze, and chile spice and herb. The pour was with a small layer of starch white head, and medium caramel-amber body. Again, more sweet candy in the body of this one, with some booze and a slightly off-bitter coming through. Caramel is big in the taste, with yeasty cereals, sweet mixed fruit, spicy herbs, and earth. Overall, this was alright, and maybe just a bit too much candy sweet.

gpekar (497) - Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Poured a cloudy caramel color. Almost like a freshly pressed apple cider. There was a tall creamy dark tan head. The aroma was mostly yeast and bread. There was a hint of cinamon and some other spices. There beer itself had a thick creamy texture and a very unique flavor. There was a good amount of caramel sweetness along with some dark fruit flavors. There was a hint of cinnamon and some fall like spices, but it also had a bit of an unfiltered fresh apple cider bit of tartness. I didn’t get much if any of the pepper aroma or taste. This beer was pretty interesting and I enjoyed it. It was definetely unique in flavor, but nice.
