Hmmm ... chili pepper + beer = disaster. I took a sip and it just burned my lips, tongue and throat. I couldn't drink more than the first sip. My first completely terrible rating ever.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2004 My god what twisted mind came up with the idea to put a chili pepper in a beer?! I thought the Forisgaarden Chocolat was bad, but this beats all. One sip caused my throat to be on fire for more than half an hour. From now on i praise the German Reinheitsgebot...

skunky and chili in the nose. serrano-ish. the gray green chili bubbled ghoulishly for half an hour. flavor is almost all heat. i was hoping for something mucilagenous or milky or otherwise way more nasty from this brew. The brewer dropped his name from the label - darn.

Nasty!!! I had to give it a try, with the cute little chilli inside the bottle. Clear pale yellow color with absoulute no headl Very skunky. The only good thing was the hottness.

Finally got the nerve to try this. Aroma is similar to pickle juice. Yellow/green color with no head. Flavor of pickles and chilli pepper. Hold it the drain is calling.....

No, no, no, no, NO! Not so much hot as it is horrible. Corona with a chili in it. Heart burn in a bottle.

I never thought I would drink a worse "beer" ( I use the term beer loosely) then tequiza. I was wrong. Once when I was in 8th grade, I was dared to chug a bottle of Tabasco and it was better than Cave Creek's Chili beer.

Looks like a corona and tastes like crap. Smells like chili oil mixed with coors light. Tastes like spicy, skunky beer. The chili oils cling to the back of the throat and kicked up my gag reflex each time I tried it. Drain Pour. Fairly warned, be ye, says I.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2003 Poured a boring light yellow color with an unnatural looking white head...large bubbles...soapy looking. The jalapeno pepper in the bottle looked disgusting. The aroma is jalapeno and vommit. I just decided to dive right in and take a big chug of it...big mistake. The flavor is more along the line of that vomit aroma, but the aftertaste is pure fire hot jalapeno juice...really painful. The first thing I actually thought was, "they sell this in six-packs!" I mean, how long do these six-packs usually last? Surely nobody could possibly drink more than one of these a day...I could not even get 1/4 the way through the 12 oz. bottle. Like many others, I always thought to myself that it couldn't possibly be that bad. Well, it is that bad. I would have rated it higher if it wasn't so damn hot. There are no other discernable flavors to pick out of this thing. Also, they need to do something about that horrible vomit aroma. How do they afford to keep producing this?

WOW! This beer has a past with me. Ever since joining the site, my brother and I always saw the poor ratings this beer received, and the novelty of a chili pepper in the bottle turned us on to it. Not being available in Texas we always tried to find it when going out west but had no luck. Prior to going on my west coast road trip last month, I told legion and gusler that CCCB was among one of the few beers I wanted to snag. They pleaded with me, saying that it is that bad.....not even worth the novelty...."hogwash" I thought to myself. I found some singles of CCCB at AJ's in Phoenix. I was so excited that I got two of them, for some reason forgetting that one should be ample. So, two bottles of CCCB made it to my bro's fridge. One had a floating pepper, the other had a sinker (reminiscent of a pair of unflushed toilets). We cracked open the "floater" on 6-Mar-2003....when deciding my favorite thing about the beer I was torn between the image of the floater trying to force its way out the top of the bottle, but getting stuck....it resembled a dog's penis emerging from its sheath.....of course it would be a green penis, and I also am partial to the fizzing sound the chili pepper gave off when I "bit" into it over the sink. The actual beer itself is like fermented ballpark jalapeno juice.....seriously, I should have listened to Gus and Legion......it IS that bad. That is all I have to say about the beer itself. We called a number listed on the website at 730 CST....I asked for Ed (the brewmaster). The lady said he wasnt there, but I could reach him in the morning. I asked if she could give a message to Ed, she said I could so I said, "Tell Ed that his beer is really bad". She says, "Im sorry you feel that way"....we both hung up on eachother. What an experience this beer was....I will give it a 2 overall because of the memories it yielded my brother and I. The next question is: What to do with the "sinker"? Any suggestions? Oh, and I strongly disagree with Grant 410's desription that it is like "purified ass extract".....there is nothing about this beer that made the word "purified" come to mind. "ass extract" does ring a bell though.
