I had a 2 ounce sample at the taproom to see if I would like a pint. This is definitely not a beer I could see myself being able to finish in pint format. I do like spicy, but Spite is too heavy on the heat. It was hot up front and had a long, hot finish. They have had other offerings with pepper that have been great, just not this incarnation.

On tap at the brewery, 2 oz sample.

Appearance - amber, lighter than expected.

Smell - packs a wallop. Pepper, pepper, pepper.

Taste - I can't decide if I like the taste, but I think they meant to do exactly what they did. Again, pepper, pepper, pepper.

Mouthfeel - uncomfortable to be sure.

Overall - this beer is a lot more about experience and the skill of the brewer, rather than the drinkability. I would recommend it for fun, but not much else.
