1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured into a pint glass, pale yellow with nice head. The nose is heavy on spice, and immediate smell of jalapeno. Wow this is hot! Immediately burned the back of my throat and I can handle spicy food.... The burn is so intense, there is really no way to finger any flavors, just burn. The beer presents itself well, but no way I could take another drink. My throat is literally on fire! Had to try, but would not drink another, considering I can’t even get past 2 oz. of one.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at the Porch, Key West. Pours a mostly clear, golden color with a small white head. Aroma is intense and very nice, like a good chili sauce, pepper, chilis, Jalapenos, habenero, corn chips, damn this smells spicy but pretty good. Taste is a punch in the face of hot, spicy heat, lots of peppers, Jalapeno, habenero and serrano flavors are noticeable before the sheer burning heat takes over and scorches your mouth. Burning is left in your throat and esophagus.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz twist off.
It pours a slightly hazy gold with a fizzy white head that recedes with no lacing.
The smell is nice, I guess quintessential for a CHILE BEER. Nice fresh pepper aromas. Lots of Jalepeno and Anaheim with spicy hints of habrenero. It even has a dried characteristic, not sure how many of the peppers in here were fresh or dried. It doesn’t really make you sneeze or anything. Not much hops or malt in the smell.
The flavor is mildly malty but mostly dominated by peppery heat. It isn’t mindblowingly hot but pretty blunt, mainly just hot. There is some pepper flavor but it isn’t savory nor sweet, just vegetal. I think maybe adding some smoked malts and salt or a good bit of malt it might have more character. But it does highlight the heat aspect.
The mouthfeel is medium carbonated with a spicy aftertaste.
Overall not bad with a great smell but the flavor could be better.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours with a clear golden hue with a white head that fades fast (oils one would assume kill any chance of head retention). Aromas of fire, earthy, peppery, vegetal, chipotle, green, tea and tortillas. Flavors show some mild fruity esters up front, bready malt, then a good amount of burn, chipotle like smokey qualities, earthy, big pepper burn. Mouthfeel: burn, low bubbles (I think...its hard to tell). Managed to finish the entire bottle. Not a bad novelty, but not the hottest beer I’ve had.

12 oz. bottle via trade with smith4498 - Pours a hazy golden color with a one finger thick white head. Faint lacing. Aroma is roasted chili peppers. Flavor is hot peppers. Finish is spicy HOT and lingers for some time after. I wish I would have saved this for cooking. Thanks Jason, I think.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear gold with about a finger of white head. Aroma of burning. Taste is also mostly burning. After drinking the pint, I immediately got a stomach ache for like 10 minutes. Interesting, but not something I would ever drink again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow color with virtually no head. Aroma instantly smells of hot sauce and peppers. Flavor is very similar with the pepper dominating the profile. The mouthfell is actually pretty nice with a slow building, but lingering burn. An interesting one.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma is of roasted chili and sweet malt. Flavor is at first of sweet malt, roasted chili and then intense burn.... I am not too big a fan of hot stuff and this sucks. However when the heat subsides you are left with an ok flavor. The body is light and eehh hot? Overall an ok brew, but only for the novelty. Not something I will be picking up again.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours an average orange with an aroma of straight-up heat. Flavor is peppery with the heat factor of a good batch of tobasco peppers. Average mouthfeel. Good beer; to heck with the dissenters. Reminds me of PaPa’s homemade tobasco sauce.
