Punishment was born as Double Bastard Ale - a heavy, bitter, beast of a beer. It was already not for the timid, but with the addition of jaw-dropping quantities of freshly harvested local peppers including mid-level-heat red and green jalapenos and ultra-hot black nagas, Caribbean red hots, Moruga scorpions and fatalis, it morphed into a truly punishing brew. Aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels.

    Definitely disappointed in the 2nd bottle release of these. While the first scotch barreled batches were far and away the best pepper beers ever, this beer is so hot and pepper dominated that the bourbon barreling is completely covered up. I dig the peppers, but his is hard to kill. BB double bastard or the base DB are preferred. Subtlety could have gone a long way here. Scotch Punishment was an all timer to compare (4.6).

    500ml bottle -

    I could essentially copy my review of Crime and it would fit here perfectly as well. Lots of heat and lots of sweetness all the way around. The base beer gets obliterated from the addition of the chili peppers. But I liked it.
