    I find Ghostface Killah very tame compared to the Ghost Scorpion (at least the first batch, I heard the second was significantly less hot) and actually enjoyable for the fresh pepper flavor.

    This is true. Used scorpion peppers in their beer.

    undrinkable on it's own, which is why we mixed a bit of it with bourbon county and you get...

    IMOP not a good beer at all. Love spicy foods, this is simply not an enjoyable beer at all. Total novelty beer.

    Ive seen it here in town, but yea, no....that just looks like a bad idea for me. I'm not that resilient at drinking hot stuff.

    Wasn't crazy about it. It's in the same boat as Crime and Punishment for me- hot as hell, but not much going on underneath.

    Still have one bottle of this out in the garage; split the first bottle 4 ways, sipped slowly. More drinkable than you'd think, but flaming hot. Do need crackers or something with it. The second bottle we mixed with an oatmeal stout (2/3 stout, 1/3 killah), and it was pretty darned good.

    A gimmick beer. Worth trying with about 2 ounces or so, just for the experience. The beer base is much better than Ed's Cave Creek Chili Ale, but the blast of peppers make this undrinkable over the course of 12 oz. Messes up your taste buds.

    Im not huge on spicy foods, but I thought it was really good, delicious chili flavor, it was hot but not as much as expected. I should also note that prairie fires were one of my favorite shots when I used to drink liquor, me and my buddy Dave always had to have at least one round of them when we were out drinking.

    Drank a six-pack, went into a chili coma, spent 6 days on life support. OK, not. Took a sip with a friend and probably wouldn't do it again.

    Delicious. Had numerous times with a dozen Capone's $.25 hot wings. The wings are hotter.

    Look at the redness on his face and holding his stomach in pain. That guy is a fool and so are most people who eat 6 cheeseburgers on youtube and slam 2 forties while they are at it. You could hurt yourself doing silly things like this.

    (Thank you for listening. Ok I 'm going, I'm going)

    I don't really care for this beer, but I wouldn't call it a 'gimmick beer' either. Twisted Pine, the brewery that makes this, takes it very seriously and jumps many hoops to make it possible. There are huge die-hard fans of this beer out there.

    Mix it with tomato juice or cook with it, that's really the only way I can enjoy it.

    Yeah, Ghost Scorpion Batch 1 was hot as hell. I actually really, really like Ghost Face Killah but Ghost Scorpion was intense, still good flavour though. They drastically toned it down since batch 1 though unfortunately.

    I'd love to try Crime and Punishment, but yah...not dropping over $20 on that beer. I'm sure I'd enjoy it too.

    Depends on your tolerance. Not an incredibly tasty beer but I drank 2 in a row quite quickly during the summer out of fear they were getting old. Hot but not crazy for a guy that enjoys hot stuff. No "exit" problems either... :stuck_out_tongue:

    I had one a few months ago, but I feel my opinion might be skewed because I followed it up with a Cave Creek Chili Beer. With that being said, the GFK was sublime.

    Maybe it's just me but I didn't find this beer to be too spicy. Lots of pepper flavor which was tasty. I drank half the bottle pretty quick and the burn didn't last more than 5 minutes.

    I saw it earlier this year at my favorite bottle shop and just had to try it because I like hot and spicy foods. I’ve also had a few other chili beers that were mildly spicy and interesting novelties.

    The best thing that I can say about this beer is that there is truth in advertising – it was hot, hot, HOT. It was so hot, that it was pretty much impossible for me to discern any of the actual “beer” qualities.

    I finished it only to prove to myself that I could do it. That was a mistake – heartburn.

    I’d say give it a whirl – maybe as the last beer in a tasting event. Best to divide one bottle up into 3 or 4 oz. servings. That’s all anyone really needs.
