1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
In short: A burning hot spicy black ale with bourbon and booze. Brutal.
How: Bottle shared at post HF FoFA 2013 party.
The look: Black body with almost not head.
In long: Nose is burning hot chili spices, bourbon and alcohol fumes. Scary smell. In mouth the beer has a medium, syrupy texture and medium carbonation. Taste is bourbon vanilla, brutal chili spices, soy sauce, alcohol heat. Too boozy for its size and add to that the palate burning spices and you’ve got yourself a brutally unpalatable beer. Not only am I not a fan of this new trend of hot spicy black Ales but this one was one of the most brutal one I’ve had. In hell all beers taste like this and to make matters worse in hell they have a hell ratebeer and people give this beer good ratings unlike here where… wait a minute!?!

huge thanks to Kan for opening this gem. The chili peppers are strong with this one that I really like, rich and thick, the bourbon and chili combo really rocks, helps mask the inferior base beer that is dark lord.
