I poured this beer from a 22oz. bottle. It had a 2 finger foamy fizzy head on top of a nice brown amber color body. The aroma is very nice of chili peppers and carmel notes. The taste is nice and smokey, nice malty taste on the back of the tongue. This beer has a nice mouth feel and is very drinkable.

A: straw colored with a touch of red, this brew has plenty of lacing with moderate head.

S: the bouquet is strong and consists solely of smoke.

T: this brew has a delightfully smokey flavor, but little in the way of pepper or heat. Also, little malt or hops make it through to you.

M: this ale delivers a medium body with a frothy texture.

D: I wish there was a bit more to this brew. While the chipotle was nice, it demanded something more. Something to complement it. Most of the flavor was smoke, but not to the same caliber as their Smoke Ale. otherwise, this is a deliciously unique brew.

Pours with a soild finger of head with a dark mahogany coloring

The smell reminds me of smoked deli meats and ketchup. Interesting and unlike most other chili beers I have tried

The taste is what is most took caught my attention, instead of the pepper spicyness it is more like a rauchbier. Very tasty version of the style.

M/D - The mouthfeel is quite good, but I think that this is something my palate could only take one of
