25.4oz brown bottle with no freshness date.
Glowing deep golden hue, great clarity and a good display of lacing on the glass. Mango pulp, peppery, sweet, bready grain, mild alcohol and cake batter make for an interesting aroma. First sip see the bite of the habanero peppers, mango juicyiness is throughout. Bready malt base, modest hopping. Warming more from the habanero than the alcohol. Heat and some mango in the semi-dry finish.
It is what it says ... a big beer with mango and habanero, nothing more and nothing less. Just enough peppery heat. This beer is crying to be paired with, if not beer brined with a pork loin. Worth a try for sure.
Serving type: on-tap

Reviewed from memory from 4 days ago.
Poured a fairly clear golden copper with a foamy ivory head that dissipates somewhat quickly.
Tropical notes of mango and pineapple were contrasted by sweet and spicy peppery notes.
In flavor, the mango really came to life. It was a pleasant, juicy contrast to the fruity, spicy pepper flavor. The heat was still a bit too much. Malt was somewhat thin, and lacked sweetness to counter.
Got a bottle of this. Think I'll lay it down another couple years. Couldn't drink more than a few ounces, though.
