2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow gold pour with a white head that dissipated quickly. Chili beans, Korean chige, miso, chili oil. Peppers and spices. Very raw and spicy. A bit more body to balance out the spiciness would be better

330ml bottle (thanks Franck). Lots of peppers and chilly and beans in aroma. Coffee, plenty of peppers, chilly in taste. Yeah there is plenty of heat in this one. Extreme, but I like it. Gonna shit tears tomorrow.

355ml bottle - Thanks Frank!
Chilli bean aroma. Paleish, a bleeding hemeroid redishness. Pure fucking chilli heat taste. Not as hot as the chilli bean I tasted before before popping several of them in my stew. Brings a redness to my cheeks. A bloody stupid idea, but remarkably drinkable given the insanity.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. Very earthy vegetal notes dominate the palate. Not a pleasant one to look at. Burns and burns and burns like nothing else on the market. A novelty, yes, but few beers do *exactly* what they are advertised to do like this beer does. I wasnít wondering what its ABV was in the slightest - surprised to see it so low, but really, do the technical elements of this beer matter whatsoever? Drink it, wimp.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
SF5. Pours pale yellow. Aroma spicy pepper, deceptively faint. Burns like a mother fucker. Didnít get much in the way of flavor, just burn. A chili ingredient, not a beer. Too bad, these are flavorful peppers that are only being used for heat as opposed to flavor.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy copper, white head that Is gone immediately, no lace. Nose smells like a spicey Mexican dish, obviously hot peppers. Tastes awful to be honest. Itís hot pepper, tobasco, chilli pepper, turns my stomach. I love hot food, but Iím not a fan. No reason to drink this other than a dare.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy golden yellow. Small head. Immense chili aroma supplemented with malt perhaps? Honestly, Iím incapable of recognizing anything save for chilies. Mid bodied. Slightly salty. Absolutely gargantuan chili flavour. Itís difficult to discern any other tastes. Tongue burning sensation several moments following each sip. Iím glad I finished this, but it certainly wasnít delectable.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Twisted Pineís ďGhost Face KillahĒ is not a beer, it is an alcoholic gag gift. A beer would imply itís drinkable and has elements of malts and hops. This is essentially just carbonated hot sauce. It really has no redeeming qualities since itís extremely difficult to drink more than an ounce of it because it is so ridiculously hot.
I poured a 12oz bottle into a shaker glass. There was no freshness date and it cost $3.99 ($0.33 per ounce).
Appearance: Ugly carrot-orange color over a hazy/cloudy body (I can see some carbonation, though). Pours to a miniscule, orange, soapy head which fizzles away immediately.
Smell: Extremely pungent pepper aroma, not unlike hot sauce. Slightly smokey. No ďbeerĒ smell at all.
Taste: Iím no stranger to peppers. Iíve grown my own jalapenos, habaneros and Trinidad Scorpion peppers and eaten them raw. Iíve even brewed with these peppers and was able to use them to impart gentle warmth. Twisted Pineís ďGhost Face KillahĒ is most definitely not gentle, nor is it warm. In fact, ďhotĒ doesnít really describe it. As soon as it touches the tongue and lips the body parts are on fire. It has the taste of raw peppers as it goes down Ė a nasty earthy/soil-like flavor. After a while, thereís a slight smokey aftertaste, not unlike that of a Chipotle pepper, but by that point itís too late. I canít imagine anyone other than a pepper enthusiast being able to get through more than 4oz of this. Thereís nothing to taste, itís just liquid fire.
Drinkability: Quite simply, this is undrinkable. Itís just too intense and the capsaicin lingers in the mouth for quite a while afterwards. It upset my stomach a bit, too.

This beer is stupid. It smells like vegetables and maybe some smoke. Itís one note, hot and peppery. Would be good mixed with tomato juice but on its own itís a bit much. Still worth trying as a curiosity and is devoid of any of notes so nota total loss.
