3.39/5 rDev +0.3%
Clear, bright copper body with a thick, large bubble head. Mild malt aroma with some vague herbal notes. Smokey notes arise with the first sip; biscuit malt; ever so slight peppery hint. Medium bodied.
A decent amber ale that lacks any real pepper flavor or zing but does offer a decent touch of smokiness. Otherwise, a rather mundane brew that suffers from the lack of any real chili pepper flavor despite its name -- smoke with no fire...

3.45/5 rDev +2.1%
pours clear amber with a 1/4" white tight bubbly head which left tiny bit of lacing down the glass
smells of sweet malt earthy hops but no peppers?
taste - while there is a pepper flavor in the ale it is not enough to justify having chipotle in the name - good balance of malt to hops but the peppers could be missed if you did not swish and swirl and know the name chipotle ale
mouthfeel is great - medium body with plenty of carbonation
overall - this beer just does not pack the pepper punch from its original recipes - i would call for more peppers if you put peppers in the name of the beer
