Had a couple years ago on a recommendation and liked it, but first review.
A - a clear bronze amber with two fingers of off white head that retained very well and left nice random lacing up the glass as it did so
S - Smokey! A very enticing mix of smoke and chili spice (hence chipotle i guess), along with rich roasty malty undertones and light grassy notes
T - the strong smoke and sweetness of the chili pepper hits you first, along with the roasty malts, then the chili spice and heat starts to creep in much like when you eat a chili pepper infused dish, then smoke and the heat linger nicely
M - medium carbonation gives way to a very rich mix of smoke and malt, with the spice tingling the tongue and the deep heat lingering at the back of the throat
D - i love beer and chipotle, and this combination is fantastic, the flavours are exactly what I want, the feel is a great balance of smooth richness and tingly heat, very drinkable although the heat may really start to build after a few, overall a fantastic idea with a better result
