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.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Draft from the Thirsty Monk in Asheville, first from a flight but then another pour as I had to go back for more. Pours black with a creamy sandy-colored head. Nose is pretty much a faceful of grape-flavored Big League Chew with added chocolate, berry, and slightly ashy notes. Taste is hugely acetic, bright but buttressed by the dark malts and char. A great, great beer.

hackobock (2037) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2015
April 15, 2015. On tap at The Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan.
Black with a small off-white head. Aroma is vinegar, thinner, faint notes of chocolate and dark berries. Taste is acidic, vinegar slight berries. Finish is very acidic, like pure vinegar but harsher...
Zero drinkability.
At least they got the name right...

Acidic and burnt aroma, vinegar-y taste. So Acidic that my jaw clenched, I felt like a baby tasting lemon for the first time. Behind all the acid was something fruity, but it didn’t matter.

omhper (20606) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2015
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?

Maxbier (601) - Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2015
Blind taste (this was quite the experience blind). Notes: black with no head, just some bubbles on top. Aroma is red wine like, licorice, and whiskey barrel. Also something in the aroma is burning my nostrils (turns out that was the chills). Taste- very very tart, lips burn a bit. The finish is like a sweet and sour desert wine with some slight burning of chili. This beer starts out as sour as can be and fades to a vineaus spicy sweet finish. Very interesting and enjoyable.

Mad_Ferret (715) - SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2015
Tap @ Bishops Folkis. Ugly blackish brown with no head. Horrible nail pollish aroma with some vinegar and black fruits behind. Very sticky and aggressively acidic flavour with balsamico, vinegar, salty dark fruit jam and nail pollish. Yeuch... Big sticky hot body no carbonation. Horrible beer.
