2.93/5 rDev +5%
Corked and caged bottle poured into a snifter.
(A)- Pours a deep chestnut amber red color. Some tan colored froth and lacing.
(S)- A huge blast of hot peppers meets subtle oaky vanilla and subtle fruity malts.
(T)- The deep burn in the back of the throat. Subtle dry oakiness, but otherwise an assault of hot peppers on the senses.
(M)- It stings the throat for sure. Not overly burning hot, but not for the weak
(O)- These is no denying how hot this beer is. It stings the throat and does not apologize. I love spicy hot food, but I think when it comes to having it in my beer, I am a little put off somehow

A: poured into a snifter to a dark brown topped by an eighth of an inch of dense light tan head that is quick to fade to a small collar. sediment poured from the bottle looks like pepper seeds instead of yeast chunks so this beer has had some time to marinate in the hot stuff.
S: smells of peppers, slight caramel and a hint of floral and piney hops
T: taste on this one is fresh green jalapeno peppers with a slowly building heat and a slight caramel sweetness that can't seem to make any headway and come to the front. slight amount of hop bitterness comes through at times as well. lots of pepper heat and on the swallow there's another blast of heat, a whisper of caramel malt sweetness and a lingering burn that coats the entire mouth
M: this beer is on the heavier side of medium with soft carbonation and a semi dry finish
O: As a chile beer it does pretty well but they could have used a lesser base beer and skipped the barrel aging and dry hopping.

750ml bottle into snifter. Bottled October 2013.
A: Pours a murky dirty iced tea color with some tiny floaters beneath a soft light tan head that faded I to a fuzzy collar. Spotty lacing was left down the glass.
S: Spicy pepper nose remind me of fresh green peppers with a hint of roast. Sweet caramel and a touch of hop resin is in there as well.
T: Follows the nose with flavors of the base double bastard mixed with burning and flavorful green and habanero peppers. Pepper burn is spicy and flavorful and lingers long after the swallow. The hops resin accentuates the burn. Spicy and peppery, but not oily or overly hot.
M: Medium-full body, smooth and slick mouthfeel. Surprisingly not greasy or overly boozy, or as rough as I thought it would be. Smooth overall with a nice long linger heat.
O: Call me crazy but this was actually good. I wouldn't want to drink this often, but I actually enjoyed it more than other spicy beers I've had. More depth and complexity than I was expecting.
