Reviewed 3/8/13. 12 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. I was really looking forward to this one - if only for the novelty factor alone. A: Pours a cloudy golden color. The head is a one finger white shade that retains very poorly. S: File this one into the "no shit" category: its full of ridiculously hot peppers. Plain and simple, it smells like acid reflux. Yay? T: This actually has more to it than just bowel-fuckingly hot peppers. For a brief minute, it has slight touches of initial tropical fruit (like mango and papaya). Then, the midtaste becomes quite smoky, and then pure fiery heat descends. I also detect notes of pine and phenolic plastic. Im surprised how complex this is; no it doesnt layer itself in a finessed manner - but there is a rock-solid depth to it. In terms of heat, its not really that far off from a spicy michelada, nor is it the hottest thing Ive put in my mouth. If anything, it hits the hallmark objective of what a spicy tongue-fucker should achieve: can you taste more to it than just stupid chile heat? If anything, the huge phenolic notes are the biggest detractor for me, not the spiciness. M: For sure, one burns the palate with searing heat. This destroys the palate far better than any IPA could hope to achieve. Its clean and dry enough where the heat actually doesnt last ridiculously long on the palate, though. Still, I can really feel it in my esophagus, retro-nasals, and stomach - and I can really feel acid reflux setting in, too. O: Its actually not the hottest thing Ive ever had before - but its one of the hottest things Ive ever drank (only a couple of bloody marys or micheladas that I overspiced really challenge it). It gets an 18 just for the experience; its certainly not pleasant, but its somehow fun to drink. I reckon this would make an awesome adjunct to chili, as well.

Clear gold with a white head. Aroma of peppers. First sip is hot, lip and tongue tingling burning hot. As the heat fades there is a bit of chili flavor which isnt bad actually.

Not much aroma. Taste is light pepper. Burns strong and much pepper. Not balanced and very Perot herbal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Purchased in Warwick, NY. Unfiltered, pours golden with white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of chiles, mostly habaneros. Tastes like Im drinking a chile pepper. Not a fan, and Im a big chile person, I do enjoy a chile beer, that doesnt burn out your palate.

Bottle sample on the bus home from SMF, thanks! Dark amber with mocca head. Aroma has loads of chilies, coffee and roasted/burnt notes. Taste is very spicy, nice chili notes, roasted, bready. Chili drenches almost everything. Interesting rather than good. Hard to rate.

Bottle from the brewery. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like burning hot pepper, green vegetables, and cracker malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like peppers, spices, and green vegetables.

Loses points for stealing its name from the real GFK (#wutang). A sweaty banana yellow color, much like pineapple juice. Flat and buttery, no head. The nose is pure jalapeno/queso dip. To call it liquid nachos isnt quite accurate since its actually more spicy than most nachos youll find. Black pepper and chorizo sausage. (Reminds me of that one Campbells soup with chunks of sausage in it.) The more you think about it, the less appealing it gets, so dont dote on the aroma too much. Right from the first sip, as it rolls around in the mouth, you can tell this is going to have some serious heat. As soon as I swallow this, that is confirmed. The habanero is big time. The meat and soup combination I got in the aroma manifests itself in the taste. Dear lord this beer has more "heat" than any beer Ive ever had. Im glad I only poured half of it. Its almost unfair to judge the taste of this beer, since the one trick this pony has is the severe burn on the way down. I have to say, its not all that drinkable. Im going to go pour a bit of it back into the bottle.
