2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Saw this bottle and I couldn’t resist giving it a try.
I was not a fan.
Pours reddish brown with an off-white head.
Smells peppery but also some fruitiness.
Taste-The habanero tast is not subtle. Its not overpowering but you can miss it. It was kind of one note though as the I didnt get any after taste.
MF-The beer would be pretty refreshing but the heat hangs around between sips.
Overall- I personally didnt like it but the beer delivers exactly what it promises so if it sounds good to you will probably like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
July 28, 2015. Bottle, tasting at jtclockwork’s, thanks for sharing!
Light hazy amber with a small frothy white head. Aroma is toffee, sweet spicy floral agave notes, citrus and fruity peppers. Taste is light to medium sweet, smooth soft chili heat with fruity hints, light spiciness. Slightly dry finish. Light to medium bodied, average carbonation.
Nice use of habanero, the fruity notes are there but the heat is very soft.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
750 bottle. Pours a amber/brown color with small sudsy tan head. Aroma was all pepper and rye. Smelled like a mild hot sauce. Flavor followed the taste and was just overpowered by pepper. Not really spicy or hot, but like I said, basically like drinking a mild hot sauce. Doesn’t burn you, but doesn’t really taste good either. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, slight bite on the end. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big bottle. Sweet gift. This pours into the goblet to reveal a murky, near-brown body with a tall white head. I do like the assertive pepper character in the nose. That sweet fruitiness I associate with habanero is pleasantly prominent along with earthy and fruity yeast. The body is pretty robust with healthy carbonation. Persistent, but not overpowering, heat is in the flavor with notes of bubblegum, dark cherry, earth, rye and agave. The finish even brings out a little cacao. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark amber with off white head. Rye, roasted malt, dark fruit and Belgian yeast. Light pepper burn lingers in the background throughout but is never overwhelming. Medium mouthfeel. Good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Long Island, NY - A slightly opaque dark amber body with a beige head that had great retention and nice lace. Aroma had a nice peppery rye presence initially. There was a hint of bitter hops and a slight hint if hot peppers. No real sense if aguve. Flavor was good. The spice note was restrained. It complemented the rye malts. Although there was a nice presence of hops they were not a main player. There was a slight sweetness in the finish which I can only assume is the aguve nectar. Good beer

On tap at Lord Hobo. A deep golden amber brew. Off white head. Huge aroma of sweet and spicy peppers. Flavor is mild and somewhat sweet at first, but the pepper really hits on the finish. Spice becomes more apparent with each sip, and takes over by the end. Very interesting stuff, but not something I’d try again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle shared by a friend after installing brakes on my car. Pours a murky brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have pretty sizable peppery heat, but not offensive, some agave nectar sweetness, mild Belgian character, I got a tea note toward the finish, not something I would revisit, but I think as a pepper beer it’s decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep red pour with mahogany and peack tones. Aroma of grain, fruit, and of course peppers! Flavor is awesome. Very spicy, but also with sweet notes of dark fruit and honey. Full, firey and fruity. Good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours cloudy, rich gold with a fine, white cream head. Dried green chilies in the aroma with hints of citrus. Light-medium sweet flavor with quick, up-front chili pepper heat, then some doughy bread and hints of brown sugar. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Sturdy chili pepper finish with mild yeast and rich, lightly doughy bread, some toasted sugars, hints of cocoa. Pretty decent chili beer. Hot, certainly, but not outrageous. I thought it was good.
