Default I need inspiration - I want to brew something crazy

It has been WAAYYY to long since I brewed something wierd. I need some inspiration to brew something off the wall and I am hoping I can get some good ideas here. I want it to be at least %50 malted barley so it is kind of sorta beer, but no limits at all to what it is.

I was thinking numerous things but none really stand out:

Jalepeno Porter
Beet Honey Ale
Green Tea Irish Red


I just can't come up with anything funky to brew....

Last night I brewed what will be a chamomile-lavender saison (I say "will be" because I'm not adding the lavender until primary fermentation is done). That's pretty funky...

I know it's not beer but i'd like to ferment an apfelwein with saison or hefeweizen yeast. I think that could be really interesting.

Anyway, I was thinking take a simple stout recipe, then add some ground, roasted peppers, some cloves, cinnamon, peppercorns, and maybe a touch of cumin at 5-15min in the boil, and either add cocoa powder then or perhaps age on cacao nibs in the secondary.

I'm sure you'll get some much crazier responses than this though.

My idea for coming weekend: tomato salad. 500g tomato puree, 500g onions, some garlic, 1tsp dry sweet chili pepper, salt, maybe a 1/2tsp of oregano. Plus 8lb barley malt, whatever i find in my basement (pilsner + some light crystal). 1oz surplus Perle only for bittering should be enough.

Hope it will be drinkable at all. Next step will be beer with some seafood (shrimps?!).

All great ideas so far! Thank you so much for the input. Right now I am leaning towards something dark with peppers and spice. I brew 10 gallon batches so I am concerned about possibly having alot of beer that is tough to drink!

Yikes! Yeah, I do all my experimental batches in 3-gal carboys, so if I screw up there's only about a case of funky beer.

Just recently brought up a chocolate coconut brown ale. It's not bad, I think v2.0 will be great... but I'm glad I only have a case of 'em to drink. The mouthfeel ain't right and it's not particularly well-balanced.
