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.

Bottle, screw cap. Nose on cap removal is fresh, earthy green peppers, accompanied by that oily sort of warning signal that says to go slow, capsaicin ahead! Lightly hazy orange-golden body with a noisy and very brief off-white head, looked oily and soapy. Fizzy medium body is hot right from the start, a tiny sip led to my tongue being immediately coated with good, hearty heat, no big thing for anyone who can manage, say, the habanero level, but for those who donít continually have chili on the brain, would be an immediate turn-off. There is some medium-strong sweetness here that comes out just before the heat kick, but really, the particulars donít matter to anyone, do they? After taste and warmth are just lovely, if a little vegetal for my taste. This is superbly well-made for what it is, and is probably exactly what it wanted to be, but the larger question remains: can we still call it beer? If it were served in an opaque plastic cup, perhaps even one the size dentists used to use, would an uninformed subject notice anything beery about it? Or even be able to tell what it was?

I can heartily recommend this to anyone who knows what heís getting into (i.e., has had ghost pepper sauce or somewhat cooler varieties in great quantities), because this is a vibrantly flavorful and palate-stretching innovation, and thankfully clean (Iíve had dirty chili beers that had dingy, depressing, or even soapy character). It does operate a little differently than when solids are consumed: no part of my mouth or throat escaped the coating, thereís no hiding a side corner or switching sides or anything of the like. Best for challenges, dares, initiations, and cooking, of course!

A: Hazy Deep Orange Hue, Passes Some Light, Mild White Head that quickly disappates, No Lacing S: Jalapenos, Habanero, Tabasco, Black Pepper T: Habanero, Green Chili Peppers, Black Pepper M: Mediocre Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Hot Overall, it is definitely a chili beer with a lot of heat. I highly recommend sharing a bottle with several people, you dont want the killer heartburn that I got with this beer...and I made it through almost 9oz before I had to submit. This beer would be great to use for a spicy beer cheese soup.

Not sure how to rate this. It is very hot. So there's that. But it makes it tough to get the taste. Probably won't get again. But worth it if you like hot. Skunky otherwise ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nsanders (484) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle. Deep yellow with a white ring atop. Green pepper, hot peppers, and light smokiness. Taste is spicy and spicy. Body is medium heavy with a peppery burn. A properly spicy beer, definitely borderline as to whether it can be drank without food or some other accompaniment.

Opaque dark yellow with no foam. Aroma is pepper, taste is like drinking Tabasco. Long lasting burning pepper, Tabasco taste. (Houston 201310) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

So this chili beer definitely delivers in the fire, but like my favorite hot sauces also delivers on the flavor. Clean, very effervescent lager comes in smoky with a chili (like the soup) nose and a smoky entry. quickly dissipating head leaves somewhat to be desired but I'm afraid the ghost peppers scare them away. Leaves a burning sensation in the chest as note of it's passing, but truthfully isn't undrinkably hot. Full ghost hot and passable too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheBeerGod (5166) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle. Orange-amber with spotty bubble on the surface. Aroma smells like overly spicy and peppery Mexican food. Itís almost pure pepper notes. Nothing else. Wow. Taste is pure pepper and is scorching hot from just a sip! Peppers, peppery spice and heat is pretty much all this gives you. Body is medium with an extreme heat from the peppers. Lingering spicy heat throughout. Takes a few minutes just to mellow. Ends with more extreme peppery heat and pepper notes. Still not much else coming through. Even though it just came out of the refrigerator, itís still burning my mouth and throat. Thereís nothing cooling about it. Would go nice with chili or Mexican food, I think. Too bad I have neither right now. If you love hot peppers, youíll love this!

NO NO NO. BAD BAD BAD. One time novelty buy. 1-sip and drain pour. To add insult to injury, this piece of crap gushed, and I mean GUSHED all over my bar.

BottLOLe. Pours a mostly clear gold with minimal head. Aroma is fucking fire, flavor is fucking fire. Not enjoyable, really burning. Drank a lot more than I intended to or should have.
