amber pour, white head. This one is bourbon and spicy hot peppers. Too much heat. not one I would enjoy drinking again.

500 ml bottle brought back by brew3crew. Pours a clear deep amber color with very little head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of peppery heat, caramel, some bourbon, wood, roasted pepper with some lasting burn and a touch of bitterness. More hot pepper than Crime.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle. Poured dark reddish copper color with an average fizzy white head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate sweet & roasted pepper aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy hot spice sweet flavor with a medium sweet & hot finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

DrSilverworm (6366) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2013
500ml bottle, shared by brew3crew. Clear amber color, light brown. Lots of sediment particles in my pour. Minimal head, couple dots of lace. Great aroma... Big chile pepper in the smell, wow... Very spicy chile pepper flavor, some peat. Bigger body. Very light carbonation. Lightly sticky. Long, super spicy aftertaste, but with a nice malty complex backbone. Really impressive stuff. Pretty much as hot as habanero ruination, but more complex and delicious

500 ml bottle to snifter (2012 vintage; muled by brew3crew). Looks good; a semi-transparent caramel orange with razor-thin off-white lacing. Smells spicy hot; jeeze... Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not my thing.

2012 bottle brought back from Stone. I cannot believe how few ratings there are of this beer. Perhaps the price point was too high? Pours to a red body with a white head. The aroma and flavor of malt and spice was much like the Crime but more balanced and a better base.

Ughsmash (7135) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Thanks to Blake and Jenny for sharing! Poured clear (at least initially) deeper brown with a short-lived beige head. The aroma picked up a lot of hot, fresh peppers with warm caramel beneath.. hefty doses of citrus and peppery hops, too.. aggressive on all fronts, but there was a lot of good stuff going on. The flavor found caramel and nutty malts at the core, with hot, fresh peppers and peppery bitterness around.. toasted oak and a splash of citrusy hops rounded out the finish.. hot, but tasty. Medium-plus bodied and very spicy on the palate.. I enjoyed this a lot more than I expected to.

peteinSD (1374) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 23, 2013
Bottle. Clear red pour with no head and the smallest ring of tan foam on the edges of the glass. Minimal carbonation. Aroma is leafy green pepper, spice heat, and dry oak with light scotch but the barrel influence is very background on the aroma. Taste is raw spice with lingering pepper heat and thin, oaky booze notes. Lingering alcohol and legitimate this is getting a bit hot pepper heat after each sip. Clean but thin mouthfeel. Very odd beer but it’s nice in small doses. Would probably be great fun with a cigar.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle. Hazy reddish brown with no head. Peppery aroma with some sweet notes. Smokey peppery scotch tastes up front and a big burning capsicum finish. The aging mellowed it a bit and helped to give some nice dimension and depth lacking in the original version.

MIBRomeo (2559) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2012
murky off mahogony pour a fair amount of sediment, not much head to speak of. Hot peppery aroma on top of a well mellowed beer that had a clear heavy hopping to begin with as some still shows through the peppery skin along with a light touch of oak. Avg palate. Flavor is sweet and spicy at the same time. Raw pepper skins that are a bit sharper than they need to beover a good amount of hops and a warm alcohol swallow with hints of wood. Ok..
