Pours yellow, with a biscuit aroma. Based on the smell, you wouldn’t expect the spiciness, which hits you a little late on the back of the throat. It’s pretty similar to Hell, but with the spice. Bready, slight banana, but lots of spice.

On tap. Straw colored with basically no head. The burn hits you late in the throat. This gets uniqueness points, but I’ve had better pepper beers. Wouldn’t recommend much more than 5 ounces or so of this at a time though...

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at Muddy Waters. Pale gold pour with no head. Good lord is this hot! Chili pepper and black pepper stand right up and punch you in the throat. Super fun but chase it with water.

Tap @ Stub and Herbs on Darkness Eve. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with a small white head. Kind of spicy, chili, grassy, herbal nose. Mango, tropical fruity, rich chili spicy, pepper, a little smoky, herbal flavor. Ok but it’s just a novelty.

on tap at Muddy Waters 2Oct2012, Looks like hell, but smells peppery, the taste is exactly like hell on the front of the tongue, but the back of your mouth top of throat catches the heat and warms quite well.. pepper dominated (duh) perhaps this would have worked better with Darkness or a more heavy beer. The burn doesnt last long and didnt stop me from enjoying my food or other libations.

Aroma - Smells like weak hell. Appearance - looks like hell. Taste - Hell with nicely added chili’s! The chili’s are really worked into the Hell its just not on top or mixed in. Palate - still thin Hell. Overall - not bad just not all too much of it at once!

At Surlyfest 5. Looks very similar to regular Hell but the aroma has some pepper/heat to it. Taste is initially very good with a lasting pepper burn at the end. Possibly a bit too hot to drink 16oz’s but would be good in smaller quantities. It wasn’t hot enough to ruin my other beers (or day) so I am glad I had it.

Sample at ABR. Really nice pepper flavor on a neutral base. Little aroma. Heat is just right, hits you hard but still drinkable.
