Quite an interesting beer. Smell is very strong of chile's. Color is a solid golden. It drinks smooth and goes down smooth as well. Main reason I rated it a 3 on almost everything is because it is a very particular beer. Very unlike the other beers I have had brewed with peppers (Cigar City Lips Of Faith and Breckenridge Chile Porter). It tastes heavily of peppers but has little to no throat burn like the others. Not a bad beer per se, just not my flavor. Interesting indeed and well worth the try Tommyknockers is an awesome brewery and place.

My first chili beer!

A: 3.25 - Thin white head with a lot of bubbles floating to the top. Yellowy-tan color, you can see right through it.

S: 4 - Awesome smell! There is a lot of chili right off the bat. A little malt. Makes me want some tamales!

T: 3.5 - The chili pepper is very present. It's not spicy at all, there is no throat burn; just a nice chili flavor. I was hoping for at least a little kick in the throat, though.

M: 3 - Pretty average. Medium body with a decent amount of carbonation.

O: 3.75 - Overall I enjoyed the beer. I went in hoping for a nice chili presence and it did not disappoint. It's nothing to write home about, but it's a nice, unique beer nonetheless. Cool stuff.

Bottle BB Dec 22 14 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of chilis
Head small (2 cm), white, creamy, diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing OK – partial rings of small bubbles
Body straw, clear
Flavor of chilis which quickly dies; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation

Appearance 3.75, Aroma 4, Flavor 4, Palate 3.75, Overall 3.875. Final weighted rating: 3.9375.
This is a chili-fied lager. While the chili flavor comes through initially, it quickly dies leaving no flavor until the next swallow. The chilis do make themselves felt in the stomach with a burn more consistent with a higher alcohol level. Unfortunately there is no evidence of hops or malt to fill the flavor void.
