Strong chipotle on the nose but the flavor is unfortunately not as strong. It has pretty much just the right amount of heat though, a bit of burn but never too much.

One of the few spices beers in Traverse City, and it's a good one. By no means is there a scorching burn, but be ready for a nice kick, and don't make the mistake of using the beer as a palette cleanser during a hot sauce competition.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Big off white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Dark chocolate. Meaty smoke. Light pepper.

Taste - Chocolate and roasted malt up front. Chipotle is much stronger. Nice smokey pepper flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Kinda creamy.

Overall - Has a little bit of a sweet stout component that I don't love, but it's got a very nice smoked pepper flavor.
