It tasted so good to me when I tried it as a sample at the store but when I got it home and opened one, I couldn't finish it. However I did bump it up to a 3.25 because it is really great to marinate chicken in while cooking.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into nonic
(2/23/15 printed on bottle)

L: gold/amber, mostly clear, 1/3- to 1/2-inch head of white/off-white foam; keeps a decent collar, not much skin; no stick or lace

S: smokey and peaty ... very rauchbier-like ... there's smoke in there for sure

T: has that same smokey/peaty note from the smoked jalapenos, but there's also some standard grain taste as well as a distinct green pepper flavor ... the jalapenos are present, both in the flavor and in some lingering pepper heat in the aftertaste; as it warms, it really opens up and tastes like pureed jalapenos; the spicy tickle is both green and cayenne-like, very warm

F: fantastic ... the carbonation helps keep it crisp while the lightweight liquid is easy going down with all that heat off the peppers

O: really cool beer ... I'm surprised by the smoke/peat/rauchbier taste, but it works really well here; the fact that you can taste the jalapenos is perfect -- if this is a gimmick, at least you can taste the gimmick. and for me it's NOT a gimmick ... this brew is just begging to be paired with some food, tacos or cheese or something.

I totally understand why people don't like this beer and I also totally understand why my feelings toward it are thought of as crazy by people. It's got a lot of chile in it. I mean a lot. Not like Punishment or Ghost Face Killah levels, but it's strong.

The aroma is pure jalapeno, to the point where you feel like you're burying your face in the chile stand at Central Market. The one with all the peppers near the produce. All those fresh peppers and your eyes start to water and you just know whatever you're cooking tonight is gonna be hot as hell and you're gonna love it.

Or rather, I'm gonna love it. Because apparently, others don't love that flavor as much as I do. Or, apparently, the aroma. But I do. Take a gulp and the adventure continues, coating the back of your throat with a magnificent peppery flavor.

With a name like Don Jalapeno, though, I guess I don't get what everyone else expected. I love it.
