Stone Crime & Punishment
« on: December 17, 2013, 02:10:40 PM »
I'm a big fan of hot peppers, but these beers are disgusting.  WAY over the top hot!!!!

Although, I'm keeping two bottles to use for cooking.  Chili or bread come to mind.

Crime was tough for me to drink. Scared to open Punishment.  Disappointed somewhat in Southern Charred.

Think I will stick with good ole' regular Arrogant Bastard from now on.  And Lucky Bastardt when it is available.  All other variations of AB I have found I really don't care for.  Double is nice to have once a year at 12% ABV.

I saw them in the store today. The $18 price tag each was enough for me to say, "move along, nothing to see here." ;)
It's not a popularity contest, it's beer!

My wife found them for sale at the San Diego airport on a return flight. I asked her to buy whichever they might have not realizing how hot they are. Fortunately the shop was out and she came home with the Stone Smoked Porter with Vanilla.

A local bar is using them to make bloody marys. Sounds like a useful purpose for those beers.
