Peppery and cinnamon aroma is pretty light, and the pour is a cherry red with lace head. Earthy chili flavor with clove and cinnamon. Overall a real nice brew. TreborWhip (393) - Reading, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle pours mahogany with frothy tan head. Aroma of dark fruits and breaded malts. Flavors of dark cherries, toast, and candied sugar with a nice spicey finish. Nice Belgian ale from Stone. CarlJonas (392) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2014
Slightly cloudy, light brown liquid with a small off-white head. Drapes aplenty. Robust malty aroma of dark fruits with a hint of hot spices. A bit underwhelming, medium sweet taste, some almost medicinal bitterness towards the finish, a little alcohol. There is definitely chilli and cinnamon there but they feel kind of tired like an old spice jar left on the rack though the best before date passed years ago. Some chilli heat in the aftertaste. Medium to rich mouthfeel, low carbonation. Think I held on to this one a bit too long, but still pretty good. SimonRoller (390) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle, pours copper with medium head. Aroma is toffee, pepperskin, some gingerbread, dark sugar. Medium mouthfeel, medium sweetnes. Bit weird, didnt really suit me. GODiSSOUTHERN (390) - Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Very interesting beer. Up front there is a ton of hatch chili flavor. There are a lot of things going on here, but not the type of beer you can drink a lot of.

Big thick light brown head and sticky lacing, murky deep amber colour; Big spicy nose - cloves and cinnamon, not really getting the anaheims; sourish and very bitter even astringent; heavy body, long finish, spritzy carbonation, a tad creamy. I like it. It is big LamarBurton (376) - California, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle pour. Slightly hazy brown sugar pour, not much head, not much lacing. Aroma is belgian yeast, slightly smokey, slight peppers, but not much. Taste is lots of belgian yeast notes, a bit of smoke, quite a bit of chile pepper taste with light lingering heat from the peppers. Pretty darn nice. coolfunnj (374) - Margate City, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2011
aroma of sweet malts,apples yeast earth and cinnamon/spice...reddish brown color with half inch tan head plenty of lacing..complex flavor of cinnamom spice caramel malts apple citrus yeast n pepper perhaps a bit like wine at the end..fairly full bodied and thick in texture,light carbonation..long bittersweet finish..overall a top notch curiousity with plenty of winter warmth mcmisko (362) - New York, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Pours a clear reddish brown with big bubbly white head. Smell like chili right away. The cinnamon and chili is very easy to taste but fits in well with some brown sugar and floral hops. I think this is a very well done chili ale, hooray! tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Mild roasted chili flavor in an amber ale. Uses Belgian yeast for slight banana after taste.
Second tasting was a bit different. More roasted chili flavor and aroma. Not as much banana as before.
