Picked this one up from a new store in town, saw it advertised and had to try it.

22oz. poured a very good looking amber color with a nice head, although it didnt retain very well.

Aroma was lacking, i did pick up a slight pepper scent. When I tasted it I was blown away. Ive never had a beer like this before and at first i was a little put off by the flavor. You can really taste the chipotle flavor. The more i drank of this beer, the more i appreciated it. Overall, I probably wouldnt go out of my way for it, but its a good beer, and I would drink it again.

Pours a hazy copper color with a two to three finger head which gives way to some lacing. The aroma is of caramel malt and chipotle along with some spiciness. The taste is much of the same, the taste starts out new with a caramel malt backbone and in the middle the chipotle taste and heat hit you, its odd a first but it is pretty pleasurable. Spices round out the flavor. The mouthfeel is slightly carbonated, and seems to be lacking a little kick. Overall its a drinkable beer, but it is more of a novelty. It's an easy drink that is a little flat, but the uniqueness won't keep you drinking it.
