Got this bottle, it was marked up to $17, hope it's worth it. 750 ml bottle poured into Spiegelau tulip.
Pours a golden clear body with a pure white head composed of large bubbles with decent retention and some lacing.
Smells heavily of mangos with some noticeable chili on the nose as well. Some alcohol present.
Syrupy mango sweetness with chili peppers, malty sweetness as well, there is certainly a good amount of heat on the back end of this, I believe it is from the chili peppers instead of alcohol, however. Definitely burns the back of the throat.
Mouth is sticky, syrupy, and full. Habenero heat finish.
Overall, I can't say I enjoyed this, and certainly wouldn't get it again. It's an experience for sure, but this one is a big miss from the backstage series. Only recommended if you love mango in your beer and don't mind a crazy chili pepper presence.
