2.83/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours out what looks like urine the next morning after a long night of drinking. It's dark yellow.. with a bit of carbonation coming up the center. Had a foamy white head that dissipated in a matter of seconds.

The smell is of burn. You definitely smell the heat hiding in this beer. But you keep smelling you can smell the sweetness from the other peppers as well. Pretty much smells like liquified peppers.

How's it taste, Ralph? Good?

It tastes like burning... ohhhh...

It taste almost like cayenne pepper in a malt beverage. There is a hint of sweet from the weaker peppers, but that goes away rather quickly when the heat hits. It's not overwhelmingly hot(for me, I love spicy foods) but it is freaking WARM. Warms you all the way down to your gut. I mainly taste peppers... wow.

Mouthfeel is just oily and warm. medium bodied, but that matters not with this beer.

Overall it's a gimmick beer, and I love the idea of it. Makes me pine for Ghost Pepper Sculpin if anything.

WARNING: If tobasco gets you hot and bothered, don't try this beer.

im getting this beer a high rating because it completely advertises that you're drinking a hot pepper. Other than that you really have no expectations going into this beer so if you want to drink a pepper. This is the great beer for you so I will rate it highly based on that!

I poured this into my Sam Adams perfect pint. It has a nice orange/amber coloring. The head sizzled as it dissipated, leaving no lacing. You heard that right: SIZZLED! And, yes, that was pretty damn cool.

It smells like fresh hot peppers: habanero and so on. Read the label, and you'll see just how much heat these nutbags put into this beer.

Taste follows the smell. It's all hot peppers, like you bit into them fresh at the marketplace.

Mouthfeel is the worst. My lips and tongue and throat are a burning hellfire. What were these nutbags thinking?! Was this beer meant as a Man Vs. Food challenge? "Hey, Adam Richman, drink this in less than 30 minutes."

I poured this out after several sips. It is somewhat tasty, but it's impossible to enjoy due to the immense heat. Good luck, if you dare attempt to drink it.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

Poured into an IPA glass.

Look: Dull rusty cantaloupe color. The head disappears in nano-seconds.
No lacing.

Aroma: Peppers. Hot peppers.

Taste: Hell in a glass. My throat burns. And it tastes like every pepper. Every pepper.

Mouthfeel: Can't really tell as seeing how there's a fucking fire in my mouth.

Overall: The hottest pepper beer ever, and the best.

How could I not try a beer called Ghost Face Killah? I have been craving a chile beer and this one promised to be spicy. I like spicy but just could not finish 12 oz of this based on the heat alone. Not bad, but way too hot to be a go-to beer for me. I might use it as a novelty or give it to my enemies. This beer is simply hot. as. fuck. That is all.
