COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Q: “What do you call it when Greg takes his entire harvest bounty of chili pepper varieties from his own personal garden, take half of them and add to…and thus ruin…an otherwise beautiful oak barrel of Double Dry Hopped Lukcy Basartd Ale?” A: “A Crime!”

Pours a mostly clear deep copper with a frothy off white head. A weird herbal spicey funk......

Smell is pepper. All pepper. Not good. So bad. Is this a joke? I’ve never tasted anything this crazy. My mouth is on fire. So bad! Who would buy this? Unfortunately me.

Tasted at Greg’s beer gathering, thanks for sharing Carter. It poured a slightly hazy reddish copper colour with thin white ring of bubbles. Intensely spicy aromas and flavours, but amazingly, it didn’t completely overpower the maltbill, there were still some great grainy, caramelly, toffee-like, fruity aspects underneath. I liked Stone Punishment even better, but this was delicious too.

Hazy, muddy, deep amber color, creamy off white head. Aroma is huge pepper, vegetal, spicy, more vegetal and gross rottenness. Huge pepper note, sweet, vegetal and a huge spiciness, way too much, intense and ridiculous. Why on earth would you do this?

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2014 Bottleshare thanks to Keith. Pours a cloudy amber. Aroma is pepper spice. Taste us the same, pepper, spice, hot, more hit, lots hot. Second try in a week. Aroma still hot as balls, my tongue knows what is coming. I’m afraid to try it. But... Taste is worse than I remember, so much worse.

Bottle shared by Keith. "Thanks" I guess. Aroma makes my eyes water. Pour us hazy light brown. Taste is Gawd Awful. Just bad and burning. Just hot for hot’s sake. This is bad. Bad. Bad.

Pours reddish bronze with a small off white head. The aroma has lots of pepper heat, some caramel, sweet syrup, pepper meatiness and lots of toasted malt. It has a fairly full body with light smooth carbonation It starts with pepper heat, toffee malt, light berries and fleshy pepper meat. The finish has a spicy bite that lingers for quite a while. Nice novelty type beer,

Strong caramel smell. This is confusing. Lots and lots of pepper but not overwhelming. Total novelty.

Underneath the searing pepper heat lie elements of a great ale. Bourbon barrel takes some of the edge off but heat still lingers on the lips and tongue.

Anytime you read reviews of something high on the spiciness scale, you have to assume some people will shoot it down solely because they can't take the heat. In this case, the first sip is the best. My reaction was: this isn't mealy as bad as the reviews. By the fifth or sixth sip (and note that I can take the spice, as intense as it is), I was thinking: that chile pepper *flavor* does not meld particularly well with the otherwise awesome Stone beers. I'm going to say: I appreciate the attempt, and would like to see more spicy beers, but this one doesn't really work. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to glass. Pours very deep amber, color, copper color with a hint of white lite head. Very tasty and brunt goodness. Hard to finish.
