Pours an intense crimson-amber with a nice beige head. The aroma is mostly malty with toasted bread and caramel, some spicy and floral hops and a mild, smokey pepper scent. The flavor is subtle but complex, with some toasted bread and biscuit, spicy and floral hops, and complex smokeiness, as well as roasted chipotle pepper...very nice. The mouthfeel is medium and drinkability is good. A very nice chile beer, complex and tasty.

pours amber orange with a 1 finger head that leaves spotted lacing

smell like an amber with sweet malts ad floral hops but the hops do not come all the way through because of the smokey and spicey peppers take over -its different but what you would want i think in a chile beer

taste is pretty much like the smell and the base taste like most rogue beers i have had(its good but you know its a rogue) - while the initial taste might not be spicey just wait 10-20 seconds after you sip and you will feel the pepper burn in your chest throat mouth. this beer might be the end of me but i continue to drink it

mouthfeel is smooth which how it should be - if this beer had much carbonation it work hurt to drink - the more i drink the more i fire burns in my belly

drinkability is good but now that the person i split this one would not drink more the a few oz's 1 bomber will be all i can handle

- just a hint of smoke in the smell
- distant smokey taste, much more subtle than the smoked ale
- a somewhat sharp heat in the finish

Poured the bomber into a pint glass, pours a orange color with a foamy white head that leavs on lace on the glass. Smell is of roasted pepper, with hints of mellow malt. Taste is a bit different, first when tasting it my toungue had a cooling senstation, then as I swallowed my throat had a burning fee. I could taste the nice malt character with a smoked pepper feel as it slipped down my throat. This when godo with the salsa I was eating that night, overall I enjoyed this and the peppery taste made my mouth water for more.
