COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Six kinds of hot chili peppers go into this fiery-ass beer including the infamous ghost pepper. Serrano, jalapeno, habanero, fresno & anaheim also lend their rich flavors to make for a taste-sizzling good time. Keep away from children and the tepid of tongue.

2100th rating. Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy orange with small paperthin white head that quickly diminishes to nothing. The aroma is chili pepper and strong spice. Thin mouthfeel with a palate wrecking pepper and chili. Hard to drink, why?

Bottle thanks? to my secret Santa! Pours a hazy earthy orange with a white head that dissipates immediately to the edges and barely remains. Aroma has an intense pepper note that covers anything else coming out. Flavor is intense heat that remains on the tongue well through the after taste. Not refreshing at all. Why oh why?

Pours hazy burnt orange into the glass, with no head nor lacing of which to speak. The nose is of serrano peppers and jalapeno skins. Flavors are pepper skins, which show a little vegetal citrus note, but all of this compares nothing in the slightest to the heat that the cayenne capsaicin unleashes on the palate. Unlike many before me, I did not drain pour this one, as I quite like hot spicy foods and a challenge (to get through this bottle in a sitting). But I wouldn’t categorize this as a "complex" brew at all. This is all about peppers, heat and novelty. As my lips burn and tongue feels numb, it’s hard to talk about body and palate when the only mouthfeel available scorches the taste buds and leaves skin raw. In all honesty, I’ll live to tell about it in an hour, it was a cool offering to try, and a complete novelty brew all the way.

Been (not) looking forward to this in awhile. I love very hot chiles (serrano, habanero) in savory cooking, not in beer. Smells just like a fresh serrano pepper. Taste brings the heat! Freshly picked chiles dominate everything else; this is honestly a much better beer than most pepper-forward brews. Pretty hot, but not as hot as I expected. If you can handle habaneros in normal dishes, this will not pose a threat to your intestines. Overall this isn't a particularly good beer, but it's quite nice compared to most other chile-focused beers.

Aroma is spicy chili peppers. Amber colored. Flavor is subtle at first before finishing really spicy. First sip or two is good it, but becomes overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottled shared with my in-laws today, merry Christmas! Clear yellow pour, little carbonation and an aroma of hot pepper extract. Flavor is very hot vinous green and hot peppers with a long lingering aftertaste. Hot? Yes, although I expected it to be a lot hotter due to the ghost chili’s. Good if you like pepper beers, but not for much else.

!2oz bottle 12/20/12 (Whole Foods-Lamar AUS)-40° in Lager Glass-Pours a clear light golden with no head. Aroma of peppers. Taste of peppers and more peppers. This light bodied brew fits the bill for what it is and I have to say if you want a "pepper" style brew then this is the one. This beer rocks.

Bottle to taster (thanks John). Looks fine; a transparent gold with razoe-thin white lacing. Smells peppery. Tastes of scalding peppers. Awful on the palate. Glad I knew to use this in a pot of chili after I opened it, or it would have been a total drainpour; but instead, it’s a key ingredient :)

Bottle shared towards the end of the night at Campground Brewdown. Poured a gold body with a smaller bubbly white head. Aroma is pure pepper, green pepper, crushed red pepper and some ground black pepper. Medium body with average carbonation and lots and lots of heat. Flavor is the same as the aroma and just dominated by peppers. Meh total gimmick on this one.
