An alchemical concoction masquerading as a craft beer, Black Frost was briefly on sale at one particular bar on the Sunnydale campus of the University of California.
Repeated doses of Black Frost will lead to the imbiber reverting to a caveman-like level of intelligence, closely followed by physical mutations to match. Understandably, the user rarely realises that they have been dosed before it’s too late for them to realise much of anything.
It’s mostly used to get even with smart-ass college kids.

Gill Man DNA is a powerful mutagen that is incorrectly believed by its creator to be a steroid.
Ingested in the form of steam, Gill Man DNA is derived from mutated fish DNA, itself engineered from several different fish species and then further warped by exposure to the magical energies of the Sunnydale Hellmouth.
Although it does increase the swimming abilities of those who take it, the manner in which this is achieved is by slowly mutating them into amphibious fishlike humanoids (it is not clear whether they can breathe underwater as well as in the open air).
