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 years 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.

Keg at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Black, small coarse head. Vinegary nose. Very acidic with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Sour vinegar meets blueberries and chili. What a total trainwreck!!! Weirdest beer alive?

Craft and Draft. Keg. Hazy brown beer, a few pale tan bubbles. Palate is light, dry and crisp. Very sharp vinegar. Some blueberry maybe - but who cares? Acid vinegar finish. Would even put this on me chips! God awful!

Last of the keg. Black color, fluffy and lacey brown head. Aroma of medicinal berries in a roasty background, very odd. Taste is fruity cocoa, coffee. Strange stuff. Not unpleasant, but the base beer is so delicious, why mess with it?

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Black in color with a small khaki head. Roasty, some blueberry, and a bit of nail polish remover. Some butterscotch, smoke, bandaid, and salt. Light lemon notes, too. The flavor is a bit savory. Some smoke, roast, and chocolate. Salty, a bit of blueberry, light tartness, and some burnt sugar. Not terribly enjoyable.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2013 Bottle. Pours pitch black. No head. Nose and taste of blueberry, aged balsamic, roast chocolate, muted chili pepper, oak and wild yeast. Finished mostly aged balsamic with hint of chilis and blueberry. The chlies are very muted and add more of a vegetableness than heat. Medium body.

Benzai (14282) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2014
Draught @ Beer Temple shared with Lothore. Pitch black color, brown head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is sourish but also a little bit roasty and indeed a touch of blueberry. Taste is incredibly sour, acidic and vinegar. There is actually blueberry detectable, but the vinegar spoils it all imo. Very dry finish. Not. my thing.

Tmoney99 (13615) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Tap. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy tart fruit, sour and dark malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & tart flavor with a medium to heavy tart bite & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.
