0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Brown pour. Pure acetone, apple cider vinegar. Nail polish everywhere, physically painful to drink. Why on earth was this released?

Bottle. Burnt orange pour with no real head. Vinegar bouquet. Overwhelming vinegar and urine notes bombard you. Terrible mouthfeel. This beer is really bad.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
750 mL bottle poured into a wine glass. Slightly hazy. Orange body. No head. Vinegar aroma. Strong vinegar. Yikes. Taste has just a little bit of fruit before vinegar takes over. Finishes with some acetone. Low carbonation. Extremely sour. Really difficult to drink. I couldn’t even finish my portion of the bottle.

Bottle from the source. Clear golden amber color, scant coaxed white head. Aroma of rotted pears. Taste is very tart pear juice, acidic finish. Not good.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
750 ml bottle to taster. Looks decent; a somewhat cloudy caramelish orange with very thin white lacing. Smells semi-tart with notes of nail polish remover. Tastes like it smells, but more robust, which is worse. Mouthfeel is medium to medium full-bodied and vinegary. Garbage juice.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I’ve been drinking beer for well over a decade. I’ve had a lot of good beer and a lot of bad beer. Crime Of Passion is probably the worst beer that i have ever had. It smells like diapers, old Indian food and regret. It tastes like nail polish, water from Chernobyl, rusty nails and rigor mortis. Getting this down the hatch was difficult as i almost threw up, so i had to pinch my nose so i would not smell this death trap while drinking it. COP ended up in the dirt, and i feel sorry for that dirt, but i had to do what to do. This beer should have been dumped a long time ago and not sold to the public, so that is strike one for Bullfrog in my book, and this is a brewery I have a lot of respect for. I heard descriptions of this beer from my group consisting of ’ mothballs, ranch dressing, nail salon and probably the most fitting just downright awful. Avoid at all costs, do not trade for this beer, if you get it as a extra, extra it back to somebody else with a ’drink at your risk’ sticker on it. Chances are if you extra this beer out to somebody it will probably return in another box later down the line.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2015 Bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a hazy orange with no head. The aroma is vinegar and hairspray. Thin mouth, very acidic, very sour, vinegar, berries coming out as it warms but all around pretty bad.

[ Keg ][ ½ of 12oz ][ @Hunger n Thirst ][ $7 ][ Snifter ][ 9.25.14 ]
Translucent tea, tepid thin white ring. Stinging bbq nose, an acetic bomb that’s lightly vegetal and dusty. Oily profile is harsh, stinging acetic and buteric acids, super hot and slick, oppressive body given the weight and lack of carbonation. Definitely a crime.
