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 wasn’t 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.

SF5. Pours pale yellow. Aroma spicy pepper, deceptively faint. Burns like a mother fucker. Didn’t 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. It’s hot pepper, tobasco, chilli pepper, turns my stomach. I love hot food, but I’m not a fan. No reason to drink this other than a dare.

Cloudy golden yellow. Small head. Immense chili aroma supplemented with malt perhaps? Honestly, I’m incapable of recognizing anything save for chilies. Mid bodied. Slightly salty. Absolutely gargantuan chili flavour. It’s difficult to discern any other tastes. Tongue burning sensation several moments following each sip. I’m glad I finished this, but it certainly wasn’t delectable.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Twisted Pine’s “Ghost Face Killah” is not a beer, it is an alcoholic gag gift. A beer would imply it’s drinkable and has elements of malts and hops. This is essentially just carbonated hot sauce. It really has no redeeming qualities since it’s 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 “beer” smell at all.
Taste: I’m no stranger to peppers. I’ve grown my own jalapenos, habaneros and Trinidad Scorpion peppers and eaten them raw. I’ve even brewed with these peppers and was able to use them to impart gentle warmth. Twisted Pine’s “Ghost Face Killah” is most definitely not gentle, nor is it warm. In fact, “hot” doesn’t 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 – a nasty earthy/soil-like flavor. After a while, there’s a slight smokey aftertaste, not unlike that of a Chipotle pepper, but by that point it’s too late. I can’t imagine anyone other than a pepper enthusiast being able to get through more than 4oz of this. There’s nothing to taste, it’s just liquid fire.
Drinkability: Quite simply, this is undrinkable. It’s 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. It’s one note, hot and peppery. Would be good mixed with tomato juice but on its own it’s a bit much. Still worth trying as a curiosity and is devoid of any of notes so nota total loss.

12oz bottle poured into glass -- Well, this beer happened. I first had it as a home brew, someone decided it was a good idea as a mass produced beer. I argue, "why? " Uncomfortably hot, nothing favorable. I tried to enjoy this brew. Pretty sure I?m about to go shit lava now.
... I have come to the point that I don’t even want to drink this beer, I’m looking at and avoiding it.

Bottle. Pours golden yellow with no head. Aroma was a hot blend of chili peppers. Flavor was hot & spicy with pale malts, chili peppers with a long lingering burning finish. Strictly a novelty beer.

I love hot food, but this beer is undrinkable. Way too much heat. This is a gimmick beer. Don't buy, I took one sip and dumped it.
