This is my first chipotle beer and as such I didn't know what to expect.

The beers pours a golden orange color with a thick frothy head.It smells malty and piny. It tastes like a good beer with the malts coming through and subtle hops. The chipotles hit you at the end of the beer after you swallow. I slight spice builds into a nice heat with every gulp. This beer is a must if you want to try something new and different. I really enjoyed it.

Appearance - Slightly hazy, with a nice amber color. Not a lot of head on the beer, but retention is decent. Carbonation appears about medium.

Smell - Roasted peppers and roasted malt are what the smell of this beer is all about. Moreover, it is an excellent roasted aroma. I also pick up a smoky, phenolic smell.

Taste - Hop bitterness blends well with the malt. The heat from the peppers come, more in the aftertaste. The beer is smoky first, but without being a bad phenoilc flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium or medium light body. Carbonation seems to be just right. The chipotle flavor adds traction to the beer's feel.

Drinkability - Very good drinkability. There is some peppery burn, but it is great. The beer is balanced very well, just like a good spicy food.

Comments - Obviously, this beer would be fun to pair with spicy food for a double whammy. Spicy food lovers take note: this beer is the greatest thing that ever happened anywhere! I could drink this stuff all night. I think I just found a new favorite beer.

Oh my god. Had this in the 22 ounce bottle. Murky amber colors with a thin, frosty head was the general appearance. The aromas were fascinating: actual spices like light jalapenos and peppers. Incredible smells! The taste creates a lingering, mild spice that is infectious. Hops mixed with peppers and hot sauce create an eclectic mix that is just great. Good solid body helps the flavors really come out. My first Chile Beer was great; I cannot wait to have more!
