Pours out a clear amber color with a small light tan head. Decent lace. Light smoky smell to it and a solid malt backbone to help it out. Pretty simple nose to it but it gets the jobs done. Taste was quite malty with sweet caramel standing out and a solid smokiness throughout the flavor. A tad spicy from the hops or the peppers. Nice, simple and very clean. A little more kick would have done it good. Mouthfeel is about medium and the goes down quite easy. Very drinkable stuff. Even more so with a meal. I enjoyed it.

I thought this beer was very good. The smell of chipotle peppers was strong. The taste was very smokey. If you hate these two attributes then you will no doubt hate this beer, but as a chile head and a fan of all things smokey, I really enjoyed this beer. I had this with spicy chile and would buy it again. I think it would be a nice beer to cook with as well as drink with BBQ or mexican.

No freshness date. Litle head and nice brownred foggy beer. Nose is good giving good C-hops, good full maltyness and and overal fresh and fruity nose. Taste is dry, full malty, citrussy before bitterness and the chile take overal. Something new to me but certainly not bad. After drinking longer this hanging chile taste comes in your mouth giving it an extra dimention in moutfeel that misses IMO some body. Good brew though that's easy drinkable and certainly something else.
