2.8/5 rDev -25.7%
Pours a fairly murky mahogany color, sizable and very bubbly tannish head.
Smells like...Tabasco sauce? Strong garden vegetable character with fresh peppers and tomato and, I dunno, vinegar I guess.
Taste opens with some weird sweet spicy tomato juice character, this might be some odd V8 or Bloody Mary condition, fades into a pretty spicy zing in the aftertaste. There is definitely some odd and almost unpleasant stuff going on here, but I actually enjoy the spicy veggie aftertaste...God I have no idea how to rate this beer.
It would be strange to say drinkability is good in a beer that tastes like sauce and leaves you wanting water to put out the fire, and it's hard to pay attention to the mouthfeel beneath all the strange stuff going on here, but it feels pretty good as far as that goes.
Well, this was something.

Saw this bottle and I couldn't resist giving it a try.
I was not a fan.
Pours reddish brown with an off-white head.
Smells peppery but also some fruitiness.
Taste-The habanero tast is not subtle. Its not overpowering but you can miss it. It was kind of one note though as the I didnt get any after taste.
MF-The beer would be pretty refreshing but the heat hangs around between sips.
Overall- I personally didnt like it but the beer delivers exactly what it promises so if it sounds good to you will probably like it.

This pours a stunning cinnamon color. Gorgeous but no head. The smell is slightly vegetal, but is really not much at all. Taste is essentially missing on the initial taste, then a lingering burn in you throat. There are some pepper flavors, no noticeable hops. It's a decent beer overall, but I came away think they could have done much more with it, with more initial hop or malt flavor and less heat.
