bomber bottle

very dark brew, near black, slight mocha cap, leaves some fine lacing behind on the glass.

dark chocolate malts and a hint of roasted chili on the nose

More dark chocolate and black coffee notes on the palate...chili still moderate (at least by my standards...but chili pepper levels are very individual) but warmng the back of the mouth and throat nicely.

If you like a moderatly chili peppered rich and flavorful stout, this one will not let you down....nice job here by Central Waters.

Appearance is dark brown-black with a good bit of foam upon pour. Smell is also solid with typical imperial stout and mild peppers coming out. But taste is where things start going south. There is so much pepper that I barely notice anything else, and the feel after it warms just burns. I like hot beers and all, but this has an unpleasant feel when warmed.

Inky black obsidian pour, with a mocha-cinnamon colored head of 1/2 finger.

I'm getting cocoa and coffee in the nose, but very little in the way of peppers. Strong roast malts with agitation.

Quite a bit of chocolate in this one, with roast malts and a touch of coffee. I wasn't tasting the peppers but now I see where they are...they're at the back of my throat, burning my esophagus!! If it's left on the tongue it starts to tingle.

Very thick, very creamy, just super present on the palate, invading like a black cloud. The burn is also apparent as noted earlier, burning the back of the throat and the apple.

Overall, Space Ghost is a classy beer. For sure one of the better stouts from Central Waters. The burn is a bit much for me, so I probably won't be buying it again. I would however recommend it!

Did I get a bad bottle? I bought two based on the reasonable price and reputation of the brewery. Most chili infused beers are very subtle. Not this one. There is a decent stout in there somewhere, but unfortunately, it is completely obliterated by a very chemical tasting and overpowering heat that burns the back of the throat. I eat spicy food every day so I am used to it. It was very off. I am keeping the other to see if it mellows out a bit over time but this was truly undrinkable. Drano on this bottle.

New Beer Wednesday, Central Waters Space Ghost, 12% ABV. Pours thick and black, with a small brown head, left light lacing. Nose is malt, peppers, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Taste is roast malt, slight chocolate, some coffee bitterness, something sweet, with a pepper close. Not terribly spicy, not as spicy as Rouge Sriracha. Good mouthfeel, overall Excellent.

On tap at Ginger Man.

It's good and I probably could have finished it if I tried, but 12oz is too much for how hot this beer is. Definitely the hottest stout I've tried.
