COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A special one time creation that truly lives up to its name. The base is a Stout brewed with hot chili peppers that has been aged for almost 2 yeasr with blueberries & pediococcus. It is opaque black in color in with just a touch of carbonation. Quite acidic & tart along with very intense flavors and aromas. This nightmare is sure to leave a lasting memory.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; undercarbonated though. A fairly opaque dark cola with no real carbonation or lacing. Smells of heavy lacto and some blueberry. Tastes like it smells with what seems to be a touch of roast and/or smoke. Average on the palate. Not my favorite, and heartburn central.

Little dicker bottle from PUB’R, I’d estimate 330 cl. Pour is chestnut with minimal tan head. Nose is earthy acidity, hot pepper, blueberry, funk. Tastes very funky, very wild, with blueberry, some pepper, a bit hard to fathom the intent. Gets vinegary late, with blueberry, but was hard to finish. Gets funky and feety in the flavor and nose, and I must declare this one as a semi-failed experiment.

Pretty hilarious. Pour is brownish/purple with no head at all. Aroma is balsamic vinegar, blueberries, wet cardboard, paper mill, and more vinegar. Taste is insane salad dressing vinegarette and soy. Jesus this isnt right. Cant drink more then a few sips. No carbonation oily and straight vinegar. wow.

Bottle. Brown pour with some hint of tan lacing. Light fruit, acetone, balsamic aromas. Sour tart blueberry, balsamic, nail polish flavors. Not really seeing the peppers or stout here.

Bottle at home with friends. Pour is dark brown with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Huge balsamic salad dressing, aceitc, metallic, shitty vinegar aroma. Taste is like drinking pure balsamic vinegar and soy sauce, nasty acid that burns your throat like sulfur. Wow this shit is offensive and I can’t believe anyone has rated this over 1.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 At Stephens House with Stephen, Aaron, and Dave. Pours shit colored toilet water. Aroma is ammonium, soy sauce, oil, burnt paper bag...with shit in it, figs picked out of horse shit, raison turds, tree bark that was used as toilet paper, and other shit notes that I am having trouble putting words to. Taste is vomit, I am 100% serious when I say I gagged from this beer. Fuck you, I will never drink another beer from this brewery. Fuck you. 0.0 Second rating: (actually occurred before the first, was in backlog). At Marcus’ place in December 2013 for a weekday tick-a-thon. Pour is black wine. Aroma is dark perfume, musky, fake blueberry, Taste is horrible mold, musky, lake water. Probably the worst beer I have ever had. I would rather drink my worst homebrew gone wrong with 3 years of disgusting age on it than this shit. 0.0

Bottle @ Steve_0, thanks to Steve_0. Black appearance with no head. Soy sauce, whiskey, chocolate, garbage aroma. Really fucken nasty flavor. Worcestershire sauce, meat dripping, boozy, balsamic flavor. Fuck you.

Bottle. Batch 2 322/4000... yep, I agree with the description - ’creation that truly lives up to its name’ ... this one was a true nightmare. What a mess. Plastic beach balls, nasty tastes that made me cough and choke with every sip. Straight to the drain ...
