easiest drinking 9% I've ever tried. Less spice than I thought it would have, but very tasty.

Tastes decent but leaves a strange aftertaste that I'm not too fond of. Can't really taste the chili pepper, at least not in a way that I was expecting to. It's okay, but I was a little underwhelmed and disappointed, especially considering they're the company that brought me Undead Party Crasher, one of my favorite stouts.
