Split a bottle with a friend- thanks to Robert for this
Pours a very dark red, a finger of foam died down pretty quick to a frothy ring. Small sediment make it a bit cloudy, very low carbonation. A really nice looking beer
Smell is abundant peppers and chilies, as expected. Buried very deep is oak, bourbon, caramel, toffee, and alcohol. Spicy, sweet, not bad
Peppers peppers peppers. Overwhelming peppers. Abundant peppers. After the initial shock passes, spicy caramel, oak, bourbon, and a bit of alcohol
Feel gets a perfect for delivering exactly what it promises- THE spiciest beer ever made. Really glad I split this one, had a bit of trouble just finishing my half
Overall spicy as fuck, pairs well with the chips and salsa I brought. I have a bottle in my cellar, I'll see how it is in a few years

Dark amber and ruby with a thin light brown head and leaves spotted lacing down the glass.
A touch of caramel in the aroma and then lots and lots of face-smacking spice--smells like spicy jalapeno juice. Interesting, though perhaps even too powerful.
This beer starts similarly to the aroma: a faint hint of caramel and toffee sweetness, and then a stinging, biting jalapeno-like spice throughout. Unfortunately, the barrels/wood are tough to find.
I'm very glad I tried this one, but I don't need to revisit it. Even as a lover of peppers and spicy foods, this one still isn't for me.

right, so remember we are reviewing a chili beer with Crime. given that, i think this brew stacks up nicely in the category. reddish brown in color wih a fading tan head, Crime greets the nose with vanilla, caramel malts, hot peppers, and dark chocolate. after imvibing you feel the heat from the capsician big time. i could see how the. spiciness might be too much for those sensitive to heat, but as a hot sauce enhusiast and master crafter, i can dig it. after the initial pepper blast, you begin to taste the rich caramel and barrel aged blend of the basardt. not a subtle beer, but fun to drink in small quantities. gave me a good sweat, maybe a sligjt endorphin kick.
