A: Dark coppery-burgundy exit from the bottle sits a flat black in the vessel with golden micro-beads of carbonation steadily rising along the walls. Meaty, golden tan head is rigid and sturdy, 1+ inches high, while leaving thick stratified rings of lacing downward.

S: Softly roasted chipotle peppers, some sweetened toasted malt and fresh grapefruit hopping.

T: Fresh, juicy grapefruit and citrus juice first greets the tongue followed by a gentle warmth of chipotle peppers. Fresh cold coffee, floral hops, spicy corriander and smoky cypress. Sweet malt wtih a peppery flair when held.

M: Spicy, creamy medium bodied maltiness, good amount of carbonation with a mineral feel.

O: Like the balance here, freshness and hopping with the light dry nature of toasted chipotle peppers against a sweetly roasted porter malting that is light in character allowing the chipotle peppers to be better exposed and balanced. Nice lingering peppery spicing lasts awhile, is easy drinking, very enjoyable with a good smoked nature, hopping and balance.

Had this beer once on tap when it was chilled, tasted ok.

Had the same beer from a bottle at room temperature and it was phenomenal! The peppers come through much clearer when the beer is at room temperature. The pepper taste is nice, but not sinus clearing.

Smoke comes through but is not overpowering. Chipotle on backend is nice, nothing too much.
