theisti (3856) - Kansas, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Pint draft at Surly Brewing Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The pour is a clear yellow golden with small, well formed white head. The aroma is herbal, spicy vegetal, cereal grain along with a bit of sweetness. The taste starts with some earth straw, spice pepper right behind, and finishes with the traditional cereal grain sweetness of the base beer. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation and lingering sweet spicy finish. Fun beer, well executed, though I didn’t finish the full pint.

Draft @ the brewery. Poured clear, yellow, with a nice white head. Aroma is herbal and spicy (Pepper) aroma. Taste is bread, malts spices and LOTS of hot pepper. Fun interesting, but however really hot and more of a novelty than anything else.

Clear golden pour with a thin single finger head. Aroma of a little caramel and hints of grain. Medium bodied. Taste is full of cereal and grain, slightly sweet. Peppers have a nice heat on the finish with a lingering burn. Not too hot though. No lace present.

Bherg (1) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2016 does not count
"I give it a ten. A MFing ten." I tell folks it has a Tabasco taste going down. Not a chugging beer but one that will make you crave it weeks later (If you enjoy spicy food ect.)

solidfunk (7354) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Mostly just a regular lager vibe until the kick at the end. Decently spicy. Golden pour with ok head and lacing. Spicy finish. Decent grain profile. Tap at Churchkey.

nuplastikk (5749) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Tap at Blue Moon. Filtered amber-orange body. Thin, oily white head. Deep juicy pepper tones. Serious heat. has a nice berry tinged pepper tone. The oak smooth this out, but still a peppery beast all the way. Very cool beer, but intense. Palate destroyer.

Travlr (21196) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Draft. Hazy yellow color, white head. Aroma of straw, hay, fresh black pepper, light pepper flesh. Taste starts with peppery straw, then the heat gradually sneaks up on you and takes over. Nice one if you like the heat.
