Like sucking on the inflamed ass of a diseased skunk. HORRID smell, some kind of nasty mix between chilis and vinegar. Taste is, of course, worse than the smell. Was tart, sour, and harsh. I think I may have tasted garlic salt, but it’s quite possible my taste buds had simply surrendered at that point and thrown any flavor possible towards my brain in a vain effort to get the beer away from the mouth. Definite burn from the chili but it doesn’t taste like a real chili to me, seems nastily processed in some way. Just a bad beer masked by an even worse taste. Somebody, somewhere needs to have their fanny kicked for this one. The truly frightening thing is this was actually considerably better than I expected, and it’s STILL a .5 out of .5.

Hot Hot hot. Obviously a chili pepper in the bottle. This pepper has basically made an unremarkable beer a novelty. Without the pepper, this beer would really suck. With the pepper, it’s too damned hot to notice anything anyways. Poor quality brew, very thin texture, weak flavor.

I had to buy a six pack just to see how bad this beer is, it is pretty bad I can’t believe how nasty it is, pepper-water, I took one drink and dumped the rest of the bottle. I gave the other five to a weed dealer in a trailer park outside of the city. Him and his buddies loved it and asked if they could get more, go figure.

There are still a few bottles of this at the Union Lake liquor store, if any of you Michiganders are in search of a novelty. They have a great selection there, but didn’t really need to augment it with this. I, too, am a fan of fiery food, but am nonplussed by the octane of this brew. Peppers in gasoline. Wow. They weren’t fooling around.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2004 New rating: This beer is much more mellow than it was a few years ago. Now it is actually drinkable. Fizzy yellow with a sickly green pepper in the bottle hot pepper aroma, hot taste with some body. Still a bad beer, but not so hot you want to rip your tongue. Old rating: Yikes! I love hot food, and have had a great hot jalapeno beer before at a brewpub. This stuff is undrinkable. Flaming hot with no taste. Get one to give to your enemies. I couldn't take more than a couple of sips.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 Whew....what a beer! I tried this at a restaurant called the Satisfied Frog in Arizona. If that frog drank this beer, he would not be satisfied at all. A good non-chli beer afterwards did the trick tho. I gave high appearance points because the chili pepper looked damn cool in there. The deep fried pickles at the restaurant were good......

Looks nice, but the pepper overpowers all---just not very drinkable. My only advice is: Just eat a chili (and a better-tasting one) WITH the beer and dispense with the pretense.

Not good quality, but I thought it was funny. Try it once.

Hot Damn, this is like liquid fire. Have ya ever been at pizza hut and seen those peppers and put some in your mouth. Same effect as this beer. This is basically like combining the taste of st ides high gravity with the after taste of tequilla. An interesting combination, but as i progressed with my beer i started to find it kinda cool. I kinda like it, but only about one or two every now and then. Here is the secret to making this an enjoyable.. cut some slices off a brick of cheddar cheese and enjoy. They go excellent together.

This beer is truly undrinkable. I could not stand it. It burns! My least-favorite of all-time. The Champ!
