    I saw this thing on the news this morning that all the parents are freaking out about now, because it's supposed to be "targeting the ages of junior high-school students". It's called Spykes.

    It's a flavoured beer additive that makes your beer taste like one of the four flavours : Hot Chocolate, Hot Melon, Spicy Melon, and Spicy Lime. You can also choose to drink these things, since they have 200ml per bottle at 12% alc/vol.

    I couldn't find the website (which was shown on the news, must've been taken down already) and I couldn't find the product on the LCBO or Beer Store websites either. I'm really interested in trying this shit, sounds wierd. I just can't imagine the hot sensation from a jalapeno pepper mixed with chocolate and alcohol, then dumped into a beer being a very nice experience.

    nah, its not. theres tonnes of room for exploration.

    alcohol can go quite nicely with spice. i dunno about chocolate in beer though. meh, i doubt that much money would go into it if it tasted bad

    I remember a double chocolate stout from the bar where i used to work. It was excellent on crisp winter afternoon, especially as it warmed from the cooler temp.

    Lol the first person to reply to this as having tried the product is underage by 7 years.

    I guess they were right.

    I wouldn't bother with it, I personally love the taste of beer. The thicker, the better. My dad has this 120minute IPA which is I think 12%? Alcohol doesn't have that bad of taste. You just have to have a selective taste for it. And to enjoy the full hoppiness of the beer is just really niice.
