COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is an experiment gone horribly right. David smoked jalapeño and habanero peppers at home on his Big Green Egg, enough to add one pound of peppers per barrel as a dry-hop for this bad boy. The base beer is a strong brown ale made with a touch of brown sugar. The result is a refreshing, lighter-bodied beer with a sneaky spice component that creeps in during the aftertaste, rounded off by a quick sweetness.

Had on tap at Edmunds Oast. They did not hold back on the jalapenos in this one. Like a decent beer that has been overpowered by heat. There is balance there, and some nice malt flavours but one is simply left with a burn. Good if you are ready for it. Subtle, no.

jkwood04 (3394) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 12, 2014
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of darker malts, some chocolate, a little roast, some dough, hints of pepper, and light bitterness. Flavor of a good brown ale followed by a good amount of pepper spiciness. Average texture. A well done brown ale that works with the peppers, but I’m just not in the mood for a spicy beer tonight.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Draft. 2012 version. Aroma is pepper spice, malt, and a hint of cinnamon-like spice. Smooth, well balanced, with a heat that hits mid palate and lingers pleasantly through the finish. By far the best pepper beer that I’ve had. Definitely a burner, and likely too spicy for some, but just about perfect in my books.

22 oz. bottle served in a COAST snifter. Bottled 3.15.13. Thanks to rnorgart for the bottle. A: Pour a dark brown with some sienna highlights. A light khaki head forms on the pour and has some amazing retention. It sticks around for quite sometime and leaves sticky sheets of lace down the glass. Great looking beer. S: Dark fruit with a crystal malt base, slightly sugary, with some caramel sweetness. A little cocoa with light piney hops and a little spice note. T: Caramel malt and cocoa with a little brown sugar. Light piney hops with a mild espresso bitterness. The heat comes in waves towards the finish, almost like crushed red pepper. A very dry heat with out the vegetation-like flavor that is imparted in some chili beers. M: Medium to light bodied with a medium high carbonation. Sweet and spicy finish with a high drinkability. O: I enjoyed this one as a chili beer and as a brown ale. The base showed through while providing heat which is definitely the byproduct of the dry-hopping technique used with the peppers. A must try for any chili beer fan. Serving type: bottle

Brewvival Trip Beer 104. Draft at Brewvival. Pours a hazy copper color with a thin frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel malts and peppers. The taste is the same. Medium bodied, a bit too hot.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Draft. Hazy brown color, medium tan head. Aroma of caramel and light spice. Taste starts off with nutty caramel, then the peppers slide in at the end.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle... Murky caramel-colored ale with a mid-sized, frothy, off-white head. Terrific retention. The nose provides restrained notes of toffee and chili peppers - jalapeno and habanero. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor presents caramel sweetness with only a hint of the chili peppers. Finishes lightly sweet with only a trace of chili pepper warmth. Bottle courtesy of Elliesbrown!

scottyshades (130) - Parkland, Florida, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle from GBX. A brown ale with smoked jalapenos (chipotle), habaneros, and brown sugar A: Pours a light semi transparent brown color. Decent foamy head, retention is decent S: Light semi-sweet malts back and a caramel/ burnt brown sugar backing balanced with a delicate hop profile. Definitely pick up on the pepper aromas T: Delicate and balanced with a subtle pepper flavor (especially habanero) but with even subtler heat. Definitely a pepper kick to it. You definitely pick up the pepper flavors more than the heat, but the finish you get a little heat. The brown sugar isn’t really detectable to me but provides a little balance to the peppers and hops MF/O: Creamy and smooth feel. A light body for sure with perfect carbonation, and a lingering peppery finish. For those interested in the heat - there is definitely some restrained habanero kick to this one. Another winner from the brewery that has yet to disappoint me

blipp (5646) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle at James’ place. Pours amber with a beige head. Sweet and roasted malty aroma with lighter peppery notes. The flavor has sweet malts and peppers, with some lingering heat. I tend not to like pepper beers, but this one wasn’t that bad.

jtclockwork (7103) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours reddish amber brown. Nose/taste of smoked pepper, toasted malt, caramel and light pine. Pepper comes out stronger as it sits in the glass but never overpowers. Medium body.
