TWISTED PINE GHOSTFACE KILLAH

Caution: absurdly hot ghost peppering remains highly assaultive and dangerous to sensitive tongues. Immense chili pepper heat intensified further by serrano, jalapeno, habanero, fresno and anaheim varieties. In the far distance, sweet thai, cayenne and red peppering contrast the tongue-burning scorch. Depleted pale malt base and zesty lemon snip neutralized by major six-alarm chili fire.

STONE CRIME (ALE WITH PEPPERS AGED IN BOURBON)

“Egregious” 2015 blend sequesters Stone’s Arrogant Bastard (7%ABV), Double Bastard (11%) and Oaked Arrogant Bastard in Kentucky bourbon barrels while adding  serrano chili peppering for moderate jalapeno-like heat. Subtle bourbon influence picks up dry peat whiskey licks over light wood char. As peppery heat subsides, dark chocolate malts surge. But busy elixir lacks sweetness for contrast and needs firmer direction at murky finish.
