This is not Aloe vera, which makes yellow flowers and does not get nearly as big. To me it looks like Aloe ferox, a tree aloe with a multi branched inflorescence. Compare with this image:

If you agree, would you like me to move the aloe to the ferox page? Or would you prefer the image be moved to the generic aloe page?

This one was posted by a member who's no longer active on the site, so I moved it to the generic Aloe entry.
