Pours a light copper topped with a finger and a half of white head. Retention isn't great, but is nothing to complain about. Smell is faint but very distinct chipotle peppers. Taste - smooth mild and smoky chipotle pepper taste that is very genuine. The chipotle is the main taste in the beer, but is not in-your-face. There is a very thin malt sweetness at first that comes and then goes, accompanied by a carbonic bite and finally a bone dry semi-bitter finish, but no real hop flavor. High carbonation, bordering on fizzy, but never going over the top. I think this would go great with some BBQ.

I had this bottle at Gullifty's in Bryn Mawr, Pa.
Appearance: Translucent amber brown color, with a couple fingers of head. The head produced good lacing and had decent retention.
Smell: The smell was rather hoppy, kind of what you would expect from something with Chipotle peppers in it.
Taste: Suprisingly, this spicy hop aroma was not followed up with anything in the taste. There was a strong malt background, an apparent hop forground, but without the spice.
Mouthfeel: Kind of stiff.
Drinkability: Certainly a great beer.
Don't drink and review.

22 oz bottle into tulip.

A: a hazy light orange hue. very slightly off-white head on top. O.K. retention and minimal lacing.

S: a real earthy smokey aroma. the aroma is mostly chipoltle peppers and not much else.

T: a little malt, a little bitterness, but not much as far as body flavor. most of the flavor comes towards the finish, which turnes to smokey chipotle peppers. as well as some heat. woohoo

M: very moderate carbonation on a light body.

D: this ale is exactly what it say's it is, a Chipotle Ale. aromas and flavors shout smokey chipotle peppers, which is unique and tasty, however i wish there was more of a body to go with 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.
