3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy white head. Aroma is full of pepper, earthy spice, some sharp, fruity esters and a bit of cereal. Flavor is black pepper, earth, floral and planty notes and lots of doughy yeast. Medium body with a velvety entry, leading to a slightly chalky, but still creamy finish with a light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation and noticeable black pepper heat that lingers and warms the throat and stomach a bit. Good, but not really much going on besides the pepper. I really wish I would have though ahead and bought a nice juicy ribeye to accompany the rest of this bottle. That seems to be the best use for pepper heavy beers.

Bright honey colored pour with a small ivory head. Spicy black pepper, yeast, buttermilk biscuit, caramel, and grassy hops. Medium mouthfeel. Nothing earth-shattering.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up at Hokus Pokus in Gonzales, LA. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma is full of peppercorns with some wheat and yeast. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of pink peppercorn notes as well as some yeast, light floral notes, light heat and biscuit malt. Very nice mix of spice and malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

The taste is very spicy, with peppercorn and white pepper. The white pepper attacks from the back of my tongue and up into my nasal cavity. Citrus flavors are of lemon and subtle orange. The finish is very spicy with grassy notes and lingering citrus. An interesting take on the style.

Sampled at esbls. I had this right after some really hot pepper salsa. A clear bourbon colored beer. Thin foam. Peppers all over this one. Not much else that I can get.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy orange tinted gold. Aroma is interesting and pleasant, with elements of biscuit malt, light yeast, dusty peppercorns, and hibiscus. For me, the hibiscus really came to stand out over the duration of this beer, but on the palate, it shared equal billing with cracked peppercorns. Interestingly, even though the peppercorn character was unmistakable (and very pleasant), there was not a lot of heat in the finish other than a transient tingling in the soft palate. I refined and tasty pepper beer.

From a bomber. Pours hazy orange copper with a thin white head. Smells like sweet citrus hops. Slightly malty and musky. Light body and medium carbonation. Tastes like malty grapefruit and light hops.

Bottle. Pours mostly clear, bright amber with creamy white head. Aroma is cereal and cookie malts, light grapefruit, light spicy and floral hops, peppers, and some grassy notes. Flavor is chewy bready malts forward with floral and fruity notes, faint hop bitterness, and light pepper spice; dry finish with a nice subtle spiciness that lingers. Medium body and carbonation.
