2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No retention and no lacing. Smells of spicy, hot peppers. Tastes of hot peppers and nothing else. Not as hot as others were posting. Maybe because I love super spicy food. I really enjoyed it to be honest, but nothing special.

So bad. That’s all I need to say. Smell of awfulness. Taste is even worse.

Bottle. Pours murky garbage. Aroma is hot, how does that happen? I’m afraid... Taste is hot, hot, hot. Why? I don’t get it. I want my money back.

Pours a hazy copper from the bottle with minimal head or lacing. Aroma is pepper on pepper on a hint of wood. Taste is just heat, no way around it, burns your mouth, burns your throat, burns your esophagus, burns your gut. Why.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: (possibly made from surplus Space Shuttle tile)
Cloudy amber with a short,off-white head.
Aroma is strong pepper juice/extract.
Taste is...well....I’m not sure taste is an actual consideration in this situation.
Are pain and discomfort acceptable descriptors of flavour?
This is simply brutal...searing, ascending, biting hot.
Far more intense than it’s wussy cousin Crime.
Once again, I have to give a Stone creation a few higher points just for the sheer madness of it all.
FUN FACT: Interestingly, 12 ounces of Keystone Light taken internally via shotgun delivery at just above freezing temperature is an effective nullifying agent. Administering plain water is most definitely contra-indicated.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pepper and bready caramel malt aroma - peppers dominate but malt comes out more as it warms. Cloudy amber with small head. Light toffee malt flavor initially but this is quickly overwhelmed by the pepper burn. First sip set the back of my throat on fire and the burn didn’t fade. Second sip lit up my tongue and took a couple more sips to get to the lips. Each subsequent sip was like a mini-flame thrower in the tongue and throat. Didn’t think they could beat Crime but they did. However, can’t tell if there was much more than the peppers though - only a masochist could handle much more than a few ounces.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2014 Bottle. I am all for experimentation in the brewing process but the bottle we had was bad. Myself and the other 6 people i tried this with just dumped out our glasses. I?m not really sure why they would bottle this and charge people $20 a bottle. I am glad I was not the one who bought it.

750ml bottle. Hot sauce beer is what this is, very peppery and fruity flavor up form, medium to high burn in the backend. Finally beer with actual heat.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Got a snifter of this from a friend who stupidly paid for it. Nose of chilis, black pepper, caramel, orange, tabasco sauce. PRetty red-brown-orange color with lace. The one good thing about this. BIt of sweet caramel in the mouth before the burn. This is bullshit. Offensive and disgusting and has no business being marketed or sold. Shame on them for making this.

This was a very bad beer. Too hot to enjoy, just really shitty. I don’t know how anyone would drink this and think it should be bottled and sold.
