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.

Squat bottle. Pours turbid gold with 1-finger spotchy white head. Nose is huge habanero, chili pepper, malt, hops. Tastes fucking intensely spicy. Jesus H. Christ,, this one must have a 5-figure Scoville number. The heat continues down the throat (thatís what she said), and never lets up. There is malt here and hops here, but the intense peppery spiciness drowns out most other palate receptors. I would honestly buy this by the case just to use as a sauce/marinade. Intense, incredible stuff. As a beer, just mediocre, but these guys do hot pepper beers well, and have my respect.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2012 12 fl oz bottle shared at the RBSG 2012 Grand Tasting. Didnít really pay attention to the appearance. Aroma is, surprise, very chili dominated with lots of fresh, green chilies and a bit smoke from the weaker chilies. Taste is nothing but chili burn and green chili taste. Just a centiliter or so burns for quite a while. I expected this to be worse, just pure burn but it also has quite a lot of that nice chili taste.

Pours amber in color with a white head. Nose is rather ominous. Intense pepper aroma which is very fresh and green. It smells quite spicy and actually stings the nose a little bit. The flavor is certainly hot and spicy, with some lingering heat, but not as bad as I was anticipating. Tons of pepper and really not much else that you can taste. Maybe some toasted malt if youíre lucky. Not awful, but about an ounce is plenty.

Recommended by Chris at Hawthornes in Philly. Iím torn over this one. The aroma was great. Peppers dominate with a crisp fresh scent that is quite enticing. The flavor though was a bit too much of the peppers. A ton of heat overwhelms the tongue. Strange brew to say the least but Iím glad I tried it.

Bottle courtesy of Max at a tasting at Andyís the day after doing a tasting at Paulís. Pours a somewhat hazed gold with a thin white head. Spicy pepper heat on the nose, a touch of smoke as well. Smells painfully delicious. Medium bodied, big heat right away, lots of heat, but in small sips itís not horribly painful. Lots of burning heat, all through the beer, light crisp grain behind it all. Long chili heat, pepper fruit and long smoky heat, and a bit of sweetness. A touch one dimensional, but itís still interesting. Not sure how to score this.

Pours gold with no head. Aroma is overwhelmingly chilies. Taste is just heat. This was just like advertised very hot. Split one bottle with a buddy fun to try no reason to do it again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BIG thanks to antlerwrestler19 for hooking me up with this one from his recent LIF! Poured from 12oz bottle to pint glass, with a glass of milk on the side. Pours like many other chiles beers that Iíve sampled - a sort of hazy, silent red gold with a short lived half finger of head that amounts to really no lacing at all. Obvious pepper qualities in the aroma. Not that basic vegetable profile that you find from other beers of this style. Thereís obvious heat that showcases that signature BBQ type burn that the ghost chile is known for. There are some subtle malt bits used to support the bite of the peppers. Up front, it drinks like a lemony, light lager. The thin body makes it reminiscent of an easy drinking wheat or something. But just a few seconds after that first taste you get a big wave of heat. The ghost pepper doesnít dominate the same way in this regard. Itís a tasty balance of the serrano/jalapeno against the habanero. The anaheim and fresno flavors are (unsurprisingly) lost in the heat of the bigger players. I wish there was a bit more of that ghost pepper bite that I have come to really love. But there is still plenty of heat here to satisfy. Overall, this is the best beer Iíve had from the style. Itís nothing to look at, but the tastes and aromas that it produces represent everything I look for in an aggressive chile beer. My guess is that the lower ratings come from those certain vagina babies that just canít hang with the heat. If you like chiles, this is a must-try.
