3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at little Italy location. Pours clear deep amber. Head eventually completely dissipates. Aroma caramel and chili peppers. Taste is sweet and quickly becomes spiiiicccy. Still a clean beer even with the chilies. A full pour of this would be difficult for me so most people would probably despise the beer. I liked it though.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is amber in color with a thin off white head.
S: Right from the beginning there is a very strong and very green/fresh/raw pepper aroma. At first, just a moderate spiciness with a light fruitiness and earthy aroma. Pretty much, this just smells like peppers.
T: At first, there is a mild toffee sweetness with some toasted bread. After that, the peppers come through at full strength. There is a strong lingering heat/burn on the back of the throat to accompany the big time pepper flavor.
M: Medium in body with a medium carbonation.
O: This is an interesting experiment and it was nice to try, but after a few sips, I had a really hard time drinking any more.
