This site has info and images on all 450+ species of Aloe. It is a great site....just a bit tedious...grin
Those Kalanchoes, "Mother of thousands", do not have the white "teeth/barbs" that this plant has. The plant above is either a species or hybrid or cross of an Aloe.
I don't know why I have such trouble with sideways photos, but I find them incredibly distracting and difficult to make sense of ... any way to right them? I tried to right one
Definitely an Aloe... from my personal experience it looks most like Aloe fibrosa, which is actually a fairly rare species, so it is likely I am wrong. Possibly a more common plant (though I have not seen one in person) is Aloe x delaetii, some weird hybrid whose origins I am unfamiliar with, but which many others have come across as I see many photos in the plant files .

I don't know why they come up side ways for you because when I enlarge them they come up right...so I'm not to sure why that is happening.
Thanks for your help it is with out a doubt a aloe at first I thought it was a aloe ciliaris but I don't think it is and I'm not to sure about the suggestions been given but thank you.
