Notes/Commercial Description:
"What do you call it when Greg takes his entire harvest
bounty of chili pepper varieties from his own personal garden, take half of them and add to...and thus ruin...an otherwise beautiful oak barrel of Double Dry Hopped Lukcy Basartd Ale?"

A: "A Crime!"

Q: "What do you call it when you take a sip of oak barrel aged Double Bastard Ale that's had the other half of the bounty of chili peppers from Greg's home garden ceremoniously added in, resulting in a punishingly intense level of hot pepper heat to an already overly intense beer whose elevated alcohol level caused a significant transference of pain-inducing
capsicum?"

A: "Punishment."

4.04/5  rDev +40.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

500ml bottle poured into some little sample glasses. It's a chile beer, so just like Crime, which I reviewed a short time ago, I'm expecting chile up front.

Pours quite cloudy, with a small head, and very little (but very fine) carbonation. Looks a little better than its brother, Crime, because it's not as flat-looking. Smell is lots of peppers, but more of a caramelized pepper aroma than just a burning spiciness. Something in the smell reminds me of toffee. Peppers and toffee is a good combination, by the way.

Taste is dominated by peppers. There is some intense bitterness behind it, and some very nice caramel sweetness. Lots of spice. I think this one's a bit spicier than Crime. This one is also quite smokey. Something about this reminds me of maple syrup.

Mouthfeel is smooth, light. I like this beer, but I have to sip it slowly.
