2.85/5 rDev -20.2%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 2
Appearance - A beautiful rich amber. A decent amount of head - looks pretty carbonated. 4.0/5.0
Smell - You can get a hint of the pepper, but that's all - just a hint. The malt dominates the nose. I really was hoping for a slightly more dominate chipotle smell, but didn't get it. - 2.5/5.0
Taste - Mostly malt, and kinda sweet. You can detect a slight pepper burn, but it's really mild. For a chile beer, I expect a stronger flavor than what I got. The Sierra Blanca Pancho Verde is on the other end of the spectrum, being an almost overly strong green chile taste. Some smoke as well. - 3.0/5.0
Feel - Coats the mouth well, with a bit of pepperly aftertaste. 4.0/5.0
Drinkability - Given the style, I'll pass on it. While I enjoyed it, it's not what I would have expected from a beer whose style is focused on the chile. 2.0/5.0
