COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein außergewöhnlisches Bier, der Wolf im Schafspelz. Freundlich und harmlos im Antrunk, dann jedoch kommt sie - die gewisse Schärfe - und macht den Abgang zu einem besonderen Erlebnis.
Note: ABV from 5.1% to 4.9%.

Gurthnar (2639) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 28, 2015
Bottle. Aroma malty, sweetish caramelly. Hazy golden colour. Quite a lot of chilli in taste, however it finishes rather quickly which makes for rather drinkable chilli beer. However it overpowers everything else.

HammerTroll (704) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 16, 2015
A bit hazy pale yellow color, small to medium sized white head. Some sweet notes in aroma, yeast, a bit bready and wine. Taste reveals some orange, but mostly chili hotness. A lot of chili hotness. Thin bodied, watery, soft carbonation. Maybe it doesn’t have much to offer beside hotness, but I still think the rating is too low.
(Handbrauerei Forstner 0,33l bottle)

Werckmeister (564) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - DEC 12, 2014
yellow, hazy color. off white head which disappears quickly. quite sour / yeasty smell, hints of banana, quite a lot of carbonation. medium body, the hot chili taste overwhelms very quickly and too soon, that is why I wasnt able to identify any other tastes. very long very spicy finish.

MichaelAwesome (5176) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2013
Flasche mit McTapps. Etwas laff und wässrig, dafür mit einem leicht pfeffrigen touch. Brühe spielt auch noch eine Rolle. Geht so.

McTapps (5194) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle from trade with Geiserich - thank you, Michael! Beer pours out in a clear yellow colour with unsteady low head and thin body. Aroma of chili and broth. Taste of the water which is to be found in the cans or glasses with chilis in it which has to be drained, dull peppers, broth and hops. Not really nice or easy to drink.

heavy (2265) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 17, 2013
16/04 A 0.33 l bottle from Ammersin liquor store, Vienna. It poured hazy golden body with small had and ton of yeast floating. Weak red mild pepper aroma spiced up with lemony and herbal hops. A bit hot flavor, earthy, fine chilli notes felt now, and as it usually gets, they become stronger towards the finish. Nothing too hot, really pleasant, well blended with herbal dryness and weak bread malts. Medium bodied. Sure, if not the best, then one of the top chilli beers around, nothing excessive like these can get.

Koelschtrinker (12031) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 14, 2013
Wässriger Antrunk mit angenehmem Chiliaroma. Danach wird das Bier schärfer aber geschmacklich langweilig. Laff bleibend. 9/8/5/5/7/5

Marko (4175) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle, heavy’s. Poured a misty golden body with a small white head. Nice dusty herbal aromatic hop with some peppers in the nose. This actually struck a fine balanced between a nice herbal hopiness blended wonderfully with the pepper flavors, ending in a burn that’s anything but excessive. This must’ve been reformulated, the ABV change might prove that. Now, it’s actually one of the better chili beers around.
